Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

I'm about to install my front kit. Would you guys suggest welding the upper brackets in or is bolting them in just fine ?

Without changing the stock cross member you are limited on the amount of drop that is available.

As far as the 73-87 trucks go, we have had a couple of customers use the kit. It requires drilling an additional hole and slotting the hole on the upper front brackets. In the future runs of parts this will be addressed.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

I'd like to see some picture of trucks with the front coil over kit at ride height if anyone has any. I've seen the black 68 and green ridetech trucks but looking for others.

Haven't driven it yet. Waiting on some brake parts to complete the new brake set up. I will give a full review once I get the chance as this truck had a great stance before but would about bounce you out of the seat.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits


I think people are honestly missing the boat if they are not going with this set up. Love mine. It honestly rides like a new car. Ride Tech definitely has this set up dead on. Thanks to them and way2low and Street Machinery for hooking me up with an even better truck than I had before.
