LEVEL 3 street challenge package
This is our ''Street Challenge'' system and it includes the best of every option we have to offer. If you are looking for the most versatile, and best performing system, then this is the option you should consider. Upgrades like StrongArms, MuscleBars, and the AirPOD control system are nearly always included in the Level 3 system. The Level 3 package also offers the best value by including a discount when the entire system is purchased together.
GM continues to lead the sport truck market with the 1999-06 series Silverado. These trucks have been at least as popular as their predecessors, and respond just as nicely to simple effective suspension improvements like the AirBar and the StrongArms. The Level 3 Street Challenge system puts you into the double adjustable ShockWaves, the MuscleBar swaybar, and the LevelPro leveling system so you can hustle your Silverado around the track or the street with the agility of a modern musclecar.
Lowers Your Truck's Ride Height
Ride height is where your truck should be driven at - you can expect be able to lower your vehicle further when not being driven by deflating the air springs below the ride height pressure.
Improves Ride Quality
Since the air springs can be adjusted to nearly infinite spring rate, perfectly accommodating the weight of your truck, your truck will ride better than ever. Even when you are hauling a load!
The double adjustable aluminum shocks included in the Level 3 package provide you with tuning options to control the compression and rebound valving so you can dial in your truck for corner carving or smooth cruising... or anywhere in between.
With optimized suspension geometry provided by the StrongArms, the adjustability of the air springs, and double adjustable shocks, and the upgraded MuscleBars (swaybars) don't be surprised when your "ol-truck" can hold the road with modern sports sedans.
Ridetech builds these systems with a goal of improving OEM standards, which includes the durability and safety margins. Ridetech suspension components are built strong and durable enough for everyday use. We're talking six digit mileage - EASY. They know, because they have multiple trucks in their fleet that have logged over a quarter million miles on these systems (some pulling 40+ foot tailors).
Yep, it is everything you need. This Level 3 kit includes all the hardware, bolts / nuts etc... to get your truck riding on air. We've picked out our best stuff, you know it is all going to work together perfectly.
This package includes:
1.Built additional caster into the arm so that the car drivers better, especially at higher speeds. 2.Eliminates shock to tire clearance problems
1. The panhard bar mount on the rearend has been lowered to optimize the bar angle for the lowered height. This helps keep the rearend centered in the truck.
2. The C-notches are included with the rear airbar kit and FIT the frame rail.
3. With the airbar setup the driveline angles have been optimized for the lowered height.
4. The panhard is adjustable so you can optimize your tire clearance at the new lowered height.
Three Choices of Everything You'll Need! Ridetech has made it even easier to "bag" your Silverado 1/2-ton pickup by putting their quality engineered components into three different levels of complete packages for your truck. No matter which one you choose, you will dramatically improve your handling and performance, while getting "down" with attitude, the way you want and your budget allows.
LEVEL 1 package
The LEVEL 1 system offers a more economical solution to gain the advantage of riding on air. It is the perfect choice if you just want to cruise your truck to the shows. And with the upgrade options can be later equipped for any performance level.
The CoolRide front & AirBar rear systems consist of an airspring, a shock absorber, and all of the necessary mounting brackets and hardware. The front system is very simple to install with the airspring and new shock absorber replacing the old coil-spring and shock on the factory control arms. CoolRide offers great ride quality and years of reliable service. The rear AirBar is a 4-link rear suspension that replaces the leaf springs. The AirBar directly bolts into the OEM leafspring mounts... no cutting, no fabrication. The 4-link bars offer more precise positioning of the rear axle to eliminate flexing and increase stability through the corners.
The 3-gallon analog compressor kit allows true 4-way independent adjustment with the use of the RidePro valve body. It comes with easy to use analog gauges and electronic switches for accurate control while keeping operation simple and inexpensive.

LEVEL 2 package
The LEVEL 2 system has a couple of upgrades, over the level 1 package, that helps you to improve your next air-road experience.
First, Master Series Single Adjustable Billet Shocks on the front and Master Series Shocks on the rear that lets you adjust your shocks rebound rate for better ride quality and handling performance. The supplied front shock bracket does not require welding, instead it is simply bolted on to the chassis.
Second, new front tubular StrongArms provide a cleaner appearance and superior strength over the factory front control arms. The front StrongArms have an optimized ball joint angle to ensure no binding during extreme suspension travel.
The last upgrade is to the air system. Level 2 upgrades you to the RidePro Digital electronic controls offer three system air pressure presets to provide accurate adjustments with the touch of just one button on the digital control panel. And a 5-gallon air tank attached to dual compressors provide a quicker rise time.
