Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

Does the front kit move the wheel centerline forward,... to center the wheels in the wheelwell opening?

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

That looks awesome what ride height do you end up with I know tire size will make it very also how tall of a tire can you use up front I'm using a 245-40/20 on my truck now will there still be room.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

Same question as bodydropped 68; Are the front kits lowering kits? Can they be used with drop spindles if you already have them, or do you need stock spindles?

I'm assuming the ride height is adjustable?

Is the dampening of the shock adjustable too?

Nice kits, even though it seems a bit pricey for me.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

Does the drop spindle move the wheel out as other drop spindle do.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

Gggrrrrrrrrrrr!
Didn't I just ask about this on these trucks in another thread.
Maybe this is why they never replied to me.
I like it though.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

I'm assuming these will cross over to square body 73-87-(91)trucks?

What's the ground clearance on them vs stock arms?
Factory ball joints used? And how does one mount sway bars?

Pretty badass setup. Should be a big seller.

The ride height is approximately 4/6 drop from stock. We are running a 275/35/18 on the back and a 245/40/18 on the front. wheel and tire size will vary depending on offset.

this kit is designed using dropped spindles. in most cases you can use your dropped spindle if you already have one.

the kits are adjustable but they are designed for a lower stance. also, there is an option for nonadjustable, single adjustable, and triple adjustable shocks

The green truck in the ad is bagged not on coil-overs, correct?

We are getting ready to size the front up on the 73-87. I will keep you posted on the fitment.
They will use a factory style ball joints.
The arms are designed to utilize our sway bars.

the green one is on air. it has our new shockwave kit. all of the parts are the same with the exception of the shockwave being in the place of the coil over.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

I'm interested in the amount of adjustability in these setups. How low can it go from stock height with drop spindles and a c-notch in the rear?
