Lowers Your Ride Height

Ride height is where your car should be driven at - you can expect be able to lower your vehicle 2 to 3 inches further when not being driven by deflating the air springs below the ride height pressure.

  1. Lowers Front Ride Height from OEM by 3"
  2. Lowers Rear Ride Height from OEM by 4"

Improves Ride Quality Since the air springs can be adjusted to nearly infinite spring rate, perfectly accommodating the weight of your car. The car will ride better than ever. and ready for a night at the local drag strip with a few clicks on the shocks!

The triple adjustable impact forged shocks included in the Level 3 package provide you with tuning options to control the compression and rebound valving so you can dial in your car for corner carving or smooth cruising... or anywhere in between.

Improves Handling

With optimized suspension geometry provided by the StrongArms, the adjustability of the air springs, and Track Quality shocks, and the upgraded MuscleBars (swaybars) don't be surprised when your "Classic Car" can hold the road with modern sports sedans.

Dependable

We build our systems with a goal of improving OEM standards, which includes the durability and safety margins. Our suspension components are built strong and durable enough for everyday use. We're talking six digit mileage - EASY. We know, because we have multiple A-body's in our fleet that have logged over a quarter million miles on our systems (some pulling 1.2G's in skid pad!)

FRONT SYSTEM

SHOCKWAVE
with strong arm upgrade

The ShockWave® mounts much like a coilover and replaces both the coil spring and the shock absorber. The Shockwave kit bolts in using the existing upper shock mount. (Note: some trimming of your spring pocket may be required).

The Shockwave system lower the vehicle from the factory ride height and provides the ability to go even lower when not being driven by lowering the air pressure further.

  1. Unequalled ride quality
  2. Proven patented sealing technology
  3. Anodized billet aluminum construction
  4. Eliminates tire clearance problems

To optimize the suspension, our ShockWave® system allows the replacement of the factory lower arm with our StrongArm lower control arm which is included in this system (the Level 3 package also includes the upper control arm upgrade).

Track Quality Shock Series
Shocks are the heart of every suspension system and are the key component in provide ride control to the driver. The Level 3 system includes the upgrade to our Track Quality Series, triple adjustable aluminum shocks, both front and rear.

The TQ shock has an impact forged aluminum body / mono-tube design with adjustable valving. Adjustability provides more options for desired driving style which includes single rebound adjustment PLUS dual stage high and low speed compression.

STRONG ARMS
(upper and lower included in this package)

StrongArm tubular control arms not only improve suspension geometry and handling, they also make installation even easier. The added benefit when replacing control arms is new bushings and ball joints. No more worn out components.

  1. Optimized ball joint angle... to ensure no binding during extreme suspension travel
  2. Black powdercoated... for lasting appearance and protection
  3. Installed Cross shafts & Ball Joints.. for simple installation
  4. .219" wall DOM tubing... for lasting strength and reliability
  5. Shock mounts swaybar mounts, steering stops are built in... no fabrication needed
  6. Proper airspring or ShockWave® placement... component mounts are designed in, not an afterthought
  7. Proper ball joint selection...we use a compression ball joint in a compression application and a tension ball joint in a tension application (just like the factory engineered it) to prevent failures
  8. Optimized arm length... makes proper wheel alignment a breeze
  9. Jig welded... every part is built right, every time

MUSCLE BAR
The most overlooked suspension component is also one of the most important. The magic you could be missing in your suspension may be nothing more than simply adding or upgrading your swaybar. The new Musclebar sway bars were developed specifically for lowered vehicles and will greatly enhance the cornering performance of your vehicle ( Not to mention they'll also make some vehicles safer at the speeds we travel on today's interstate highways.

POSI-LINK
"Ball Joint" style connection allows bind free operation through a extremely wide range of motion.

  • 360º rotation
  • 45º misalignment

Durable design will outlast traditional bushing style connectors.

RideTech (tall) spindles
It is called a TALL Spindle because the upper ball joint is raised 1-1/2". Different from the factory design, it yields a better camber change during suspension movement. Pivot points are determined by the ball joints on the spindles and bushing locations on the frame, not the control arms. These spindles are STEEL, the strongest ones in the industry.

Billet Tie Rod Adjusters
Strong, easy to adjust and look cool too. Large wrench flats on both ends provide an easy way to dial your suspension anodized aluminum finish provides long lasting good looks.

REAR SYSTEM

COOLRIDE
with strong arm and musclebar upgrade

The CoolRide® system consists of an airspring, a shock absorber, and all of the necessary mounting brackets and hardware. The rear system is very simple to install with the airspring and shock absorber replacing the coil-spring and shock in the stock locations.

  1. Lowers vehicle ride height and provides the ability to go even lower when not being driven by lowering the air pressure further. Improves both handling and ride quality.
  2. Pre-engineered mounting hardware to maintain ground clearance, driveline angles, tire clearance and load capacities.
