Re: RideTech Air Suspension Install - 98 RCSB

Didnt really get good pics of front install but went easy with tubular upper and lower arms, bag & cup, new shock mounts, and adjustable shocks.

I will get pics when i have the wheels back off for detailing...



Here is some pics of it back together....

Re: RideTech Air Suspension Install - 98 RCSB

I haven't driven the truck much other than down the road a bit and back but seemed to ride good & everything seemed to be good.

I need to button up a few things & the truck needs a GOOD WASH & DETAIL!

Gorgeous truck! Are those pictures of it completely aired out? Can you tell me more about your tonneau cover?

Thanks! Yes that is aired out it. The front inner fenders are sitting on the front tires & rearend is just almost touching the bed floor. So as low as you can go with stock inners and bed floor.


The tonneau cover is SnugTop brand & its the SnugLid series.

20X8.5S with 5.25 bs & 255/35/20 in front & 20x10s with 5.5 bs & 275/35/20 in rear.
The rear wheels need more backspacing they are CRAZY tight but I plan to get new wheels next year.
