It's powder coated. There is a company by me that blasts and powder coats a frame for $300. Couldn't pass it up at that price!

Kook,

First off your truck is beautiful!! If you don't mind, what wheel width's and backspace are you running. We just received the Ridetech level 2 system for my son's 67. I would love to buy him wheels for Christmas but the truck won't be together for a few months.

Thanks,

Mike

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

Here is a pic of mine close to finished, wanted to add a 60-66 truck for reference. It's has 18x11 and 18x12 wheels. 315 front tires 335 rear. Love the stance and the front will come down about an inch still. Hard to beat Ridetech parts, this is my second kit I've installed.

Rears are factory with a 3" strip added, front will have to be trimmed across the bottom. The height of the front inners will work, just have to make room for the turning radius.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

I'm using this kit with the muscle bar and nolimit rack and pinion.
the sway bar interferes with the rack (or vice versa) Is there longer end links available or any suggestions as to the best way to safely lengthen the end links.
The links do come apart and it looks they are held together by a m12 -1.75 threaded rod. I'm not sure a longer threaded rod is the strongest / safest method. I need about another 2.5"

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

Just got the full level 2 kit and front swaybar. I was going to go air ride on my build but since it's my first ever frame off I decided to keep it simple so that I didn't get in over my head with fab work. Can't wait to start installing it.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

Ridetech stuff is very nice and the fit/quality is excellent. We used their coil over system on our Chevelle as well and couldn't be happier.

Re: RideTech's New C10 CoilOver Kits

I have this kit on my truck and the bottom control arm sits about 1-1/2 from the ground. No matter how much you change the spring height on the coil over the control arm will stay in the same place right? I took my truck for a ride and the control arms scrapped the ground multiple times.
