    Ridetech offers hot rodders the ultimate in handling performance, ride quality, and simplicity with coil-over suspension components. A coil-over is a shock surrounded by a coil spring; it combines the shock and spring into a single space-saving unit. A coil-over is the easiest solution for most suspensions and allows some adjustability of ride height and spring rate. For front or rear, each Coil-Over System includes two monotube shocks with 2-1/2'' steel springs. RideTech's 2-1/2'' coil over spring is built in Indiana by HyperCo. It provides an accurate linear spring rate while maintaining ride height throughout its life. Front Systems are for use with Ridetech StrongArm Control Arms; Rear Systems are for use with either Ridetech Rear Suspension Systems or rear StrongArms (neither intended for stock suspensions).

    RideTech Smooth Body HQ (Handling Quality) Shocks are built on a monotube design. Monotube shocks optimize performance by using fewer internal components than twin tube shocks. The Monotube key advantages are the use of a larger piston, more precise valving & an efficient oil flow path to create cooler operating temperatures & predictably consistent performance respect to damping and reliability in extreme environments. These unique shock absorbers have been more than 16 years in the making, and the technology and overall upgrade they provide will change the ride and handling of your vehicle.

    The HQ Series shock adds rebound adjustment for the driver who wants to tune ride quality and handling quality to their specific taste. A wide rebound adjustment range allows you to cruise down the road in plush comfort or firm up your suspension for those Saturday morning canyon roads!
