    Development - StrongArms are developed by Ridetech in Jasper, Indiana on an actual running, driving vehicle. This allows them to properly address ALL fitment and performance issues. It also allows them to document an installation, demonstrate the installation to their sales techs and dealers, and allows ongoing evaluation of the performance of the StrongArms

    Design - We think the best way to design any component is to keep it simple. That is why Strong Arms are designed with as few components as possible. Ridetech has a new 4 axis tubing bender that allows precise, repeatable bends that no other machine can achieve. This machine allows them to create elegant tubing bends that would otherwise require several separate welded components.

    Components - Ridetech has worked closely with Moog, a major manufacturer of OEM ball joints, to ensure that the proper ball joints have been selected for the Application... a compression style unit in a compression application, a tension ball joint in a tension application. Proper poly or rubber bushings are selected based on application and the type of driving or racing that is anticipated.

    Geometry of a suspension starts with the position of the frame mounts and the height of the spindle, not the shape of the control arm. However, there are a few small things in control arm design that can make a big difference in how a vehicle drives and performs.

    • StrongArms create extra caster potential by adjusting the fore and aft position of the ball joints. At the same time they make sure the wheel is properly positioned in the wheel-well so your new 18'' wheels fit like they should!
    • The balljoint camber travel is re-centered to accommodate the new lowered ride height so the ball joint doesn't bind during extreme suspension movement.
    • The perimeter of the StrongArms is contoured to allow maximum wheel clearance and turning radius.
    • All shock mounts, airspring mounts, and swaybar mounts are integrated into the design so you don't have to finish the engineering in order to enjoy your ride!
    • StrongArms are optimized to allow proper camber adjustment at your new lowered ride height without using a large stack of shims.

    RideTech has designed your new StrongArms to fit a variety of RideTech shock and spring solutions. There are two inital choices for you: air or coil springs. The correct shocks/springs are listed under the "View Details" link for your particular application. If you are looking for an adjustable air solution, you will want to add ShockWaves to your AirBar. If your looking for the simplicty of a coil-over...we have that for you too!
