The package contains front upper and lower control arms, front MuscleBar, rear StrongArms and 4 HQ Series CoilOvers. The benefit of buying a complete suspension system is that it takes all of the guesswork out when purchasing a new suspension.

  • Upper StrongArms feature tall ball joints to provide increased camber gain and the ball joint location has been moved back to allow for additional caster setting to improve high speed stability and steering feel. Offset slugs are also available for additional caster. Injection molded Delrin bushings with 13% Teflon are used to reduce deflection and stiction.
  • Lower StrongArms feature a double sheer lower mount for increased strength. We have also dropped the lower shock mount to increase suspension travel and moved the lower ball joint forward to increase caster settings while keeping the wheel centered in the wheel opening. Injection molded Delrin bushings with 13% Teflon are used to reduce deflection and stiction.
  • HQ Series CoilOvers utilize an impact forged aluminum body and Monotube design to deliver excellent ride quality and handling. They allow fine tuning of the ride quality and handling the rebound knob is located at the top of the shock for under hood access. They come standard with a 1,000,0001 Mile Warranty. Brackets are included witht the rear coilovers for easy attachment to the frame and to the 10/12 bolt rearend. Interested in AutoCross or Road Course Racing? Consider the TQ Series CoilOvers.
  • Front MuscleBar helps reduce body roll and creates room for wider front tires. An adjustable rate Rear MuscleBar is also included.
  • Rear StrongArms provide added strength to help get the power to the pavement and utilize R-Joint Technology to combine the best qualities of low friction movement, lateral stability, full range articulation, and quiet operation into one special bearing that is as home on the street as it is on the racetrack.

About RideTech

Ridetech manufactures exciting suspension systems that improve the handling and ride quality of your muscle car, truck, Corvette, or hot rod. From restorations and show cars, to high-speed autocross and track day cars, Ridetech offers a wide range of premium products including air suspension systems (air ride), coil-overs, shock absorbers, coil, and leaf springs, tubular control arms, roll bars, sway bars and much more.

Being a Hot Rodder is more than parts and problem solving, if you are one too, then you already know what we mean. It is a lifestyle and a passion, and it is built on sharing with friends. Being a Hot Rodder means you never enter any town as a stranger, you always have fellow enthusiast to sit down with and feel at home. This is why we spend so much of our time and resources on attending events, we want to meet you and hear about your story – even if you aren’t a customer, even if you buy someone else’s product… 

Our approach to problem-solving, “can-do” perspective and relationship-driven business tactics have provided openings into many areas of business including agriculture, commercial transport, and defense projects as well… but at the core, we remain true to who we are – we are Hot Rodders.


RideTech greatly improves the ride quality and handling performance of your late model muscle car. Choose coil-over suspension, air suspension or monotube shock absorber upgrades. RideTech’s engineering team starts from the ground up with impact forged aluminum shock absorbers bodies that are vastly superior, with respect to quality, to anything offered from the factory. As such, RideTech offers an unbeatable 1,000,001 mile warranty. Like high-end exotics and race cars, RideTech shocks are monotubes. The design provides precision rebound and compression control as well as enhanced reliability. 

Coil-overs are popular upgrades for Mustangs Camaros and LX muscle. A Coilover is simply a shock surrounded by a coil spring; it places the shock and coil in one linear unit. A Coilover is a simple solution for most suspension designs, but can often be difficult to understand what you need. Fortunately, RideTech has your back with 21 years of suspension development.

Choosing a coil-over begins with two important decisions. The first is choosing the function of your vehicle. If you are building a performance car, then you will want a coil-over that has an adjustable shock. This allows the driver to tweak the “stiffness” of the suspension with a twist of a knob located on the shock. This adjustment knob controls the shock valving which controls the damping of the coil-over. This is a huge benefit for drivers who want to fine-tune their performance for the track, autocross, or the road. 

The second most important decision in choosing a coil-over is finding your desired spring rate for the coil spring. Spring rate is the force required to compress a spring 1″ and is an important factor in how comfortable your car rides and your ride height. RideTech has worked out ideal spring rates for your vehicle and intended driving style.
