Shopper Award

Shocks are the BRAINS of your suspension! Nothing influences how your car rides and handles more than shock absorbers. If you could pick only one thing to change on your car to get the most overall improvement?upgrade the brains of your suspension the shocks! It took us 16 years to find shock technology that we felt was worthy of our customers. After engaging the expertise of FOX Racing Shocks, we felt we were able to bring the already crowded shock market a product that was both unique and improved.

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.
