73-87 c10 coil-over kits front and rear

I was wondering if there were any other lowering coil-over kits for the 73-87 c10 besides the Porterbuilt kits? And if someone has used the Porterbuilt kits?
thanks

Very easy today for other venders to get paid posters to claim ,things..
none of those threads did we see the vehicle and the wrong parts..
The threads that had bought the venders parts and posted the issue, porter chimed in and said they fix it..
Seems odd..
Don't believe everything you read.. on the internet.
Just a friendly reminder..

Swing on by the build thread in my sig and show me where I posted that my issues have been fixed, anytime. Do I need to post the exact part and predicament or am I better off going to the Vendor with that info??

Re: 73-87 c10 coil-over kits front and rear

The Ridetech can work on a 73-87 and had a customer install on his 73-87 Suburban. As for the rear, KP Components make a coilover rear that is a nice setup. We are dealers for both companies, so let us know if we can help put together a package for you.

I don't think he had to do much, and will see if I can get the details.

Re: 73-87 c10 coil-over kits front and rear

We do offer a coil over kit for the front with new upper and lower a-arms. Currently we only offer our 4-link rear as an air suspended product but we do manufacture the pieces that can be used to convert it over to coil overs. Feel free to DM or email me if I can be of any assistance.

Nothing against Ridetech (I've had their products before) but I would rather run an aftermarket cross member for clearance reasons.
