    Ridetech ShockWave Lowering Systems are state-of-the-art airspring/shock combinations. The ShockWave mounts just like a conventional coilover and replaces both the coil spring and the shock absorber with the airspring around the shock absorber. This simplifies mounting, eliminates tire clearance issues, and maintains effective shock angle. It is available in several different airspring styles and shock lengths to fit nearly any application.

    Universal ShockWaves comes in a variety of mounting and ride height options, making them a perfect solution for your custom project. First you will need to choose the ShockWave best suited for your vehicle's load capacity; then you will need to choose compression and extended shock lengths. All Shockwave kits are sold as a pair for both right and left side fitment.

    Shocks are the heart of every suspension system. Sure, springs & control arms keep a vehicle suspended, but shocks actually provide control to the driver. That's why RideTech has kept up with the latest shock technology offering a couple of shock options for your ShockWave separated into ''series''. Each series is tailored to a certain application that optimizes performance, adjustability, and cash savings where they matter. Sold as pairs, Two ShockWaves per package.

    ShockWave 1000 Series Specifications
    The 1000 series double convoluted ShockWave, with its shorter stroke and larger diameter will have a larger load capacity and spring rate that is appropriate for the front of most vehicles. It is also a progressive spring, which means that the further it is compressed, the firmer the spring rate. This progressive spring rate helps the vehicle ride very comfortably at a normal ride height and still offer great handling when the spring is compressed farther, such as a tight turn.

    1000 Series
  • 6-1/2'' Overall Diameter
  • 2140 lbs. at 100 psi Load Capacity
  • Intended for Independent front and/or Independent rear installations on vehicles weighing 1500-2500 lbs. per axle. NOT recommended for solid axle rear applications... not enough travel, too much load capacity.




  • Click to Open Chart

    ShockWave 104 Series Specifications
    The 104mm ShockWave combines the load capacity of the double convoluted ShockWave with the stroke and linear spring rate of the rolling sleeve ShockWave. It is used in the front of some vehicles to further improve ride quality, and in the rear of some very heavy vehicles to increase load capacity. It is exactly the same overall diameter as the 6-1/2'' diameter double convoluted ShockWave.

    104 Series
  • 6-1/2'' Overall Diameter
  • 2010 lbs. at 100 psi Load Capacity
  • Intended for Independent front and/or Independent rear installations on vehicles weighing 1200-2000 lbs. per axle. NOT recommended for solid axle rear applications... not enough travel, too much load capacity.

    ShockWave 7000 & 8000 Series Specifications
    The 7000 and 8000 series ShockWave, with a smaller diameter and longer stroke will have a less load capacity and a softer spring rate that is appropriate for the rear of most vehicles with a solid rear axle. The spring rate and load capacity is infl uenced by the profile of the lower piston. A straight piston will offer a very linear, or constant spring rate throughout its travel. A tapered lower piston will result in a more progressive spring rate much like the double convoluted airspring.

    7000 Series
  • 4'' Overall Diameter
  • 780 lbs. at 100 psi Load Capacity
  • Intended for Solid Rear Axle: Rear axle weight is less than 1500lbs. NOT recommended for IFS installations... not enough load capacity

    8000 Series
  • 5'' Overall Diameter
  • 1200 lbs. at 100 psi Load Capacity
  • Intended for Solid Rear Axle: Rear axle weight is 1500-2400lbs. NOT recommended for IFS installations... not enough load capacity


  • Frequently Asked Question's

    What length ShockWave should be used?
    Answer: In general, the longer the better. A longer ShockWave will give you more suspension travel. More suspension travel will allow a better ride quality because the vehicle has more distance to absorb road irregularities. The heavier the vehicle, the more important this becomes.

    What about my ride height?
    Answer: The ride height of the ShockWave is much more important than the air pressure it runs at. Every ShockWave has an optimal ride height. The farther you deviate from this intended ride height the more ride quality and handling performance will suffer. If run too low, the ShockWave and/or suspension may bottom out. If run too high, the excessive air pressure will create a stiff ride, AND you may ''top out'' the ShockWave.

    General Terms to Know:

    Compressed Length - This is the measurement from the two mounting points when the suspension is fully compressed.
    Extended Length - This is the length between the mounting points when the suspension is at full extension.
    Ride Height - This is the distance between the two mounting points when the vehicle is at the height it is intended to be driven.

    can I use these without an air compressor? just air them up and cap off the valve?

    Asked by: skydiver
    Answer from RideTech; When properly installed they will hold air as well as tires or shocks. Don't' forget however that another issue you have to look at is the air temperature. If your in an area where it can get pretty cold like me in Canada, expect a variance in your ride height when it gets colder out. I do notice this from filling up my tank with warmer air from the compressor to the next morning after sitting in a garage next to freezing temps by the morning. Enough to say a 1-3" drop in ride height. Just figure a 5 PSI drop. We don' t notice that in a lower pressure 35PSI tire, but in a 70PSI air bag it makes a more noticeable difference when you only have 65PSI. Most people have this setup for air over leaf applications where they only need air to level out a load for a certain trip they are doing, much more economical.
