The LEVEL 2 system provides more tuning with the addition of a STRONGARM front kit and the enhanced RidePro control system. The front CoolRide system is a simple bolt-on install that comes with our STRONGARM tubular control arms. A Ridetech 4-Link will position the rear more precisely and eliminate the flexing and instability of the leafspring rear. The 5-gallon RidePro compressor system provides 4-way digital control. It allows 3 system air pressure presets to provide accurate adjustments with the touch of just one button.
NOTE: The two-piece frame is made from 2 pieces of metal welded together along their length. The one-piece frame is made from a single piece of metal and has no weld line (both frames have a seam on the top of the frame; the two-piece also has a seam on the bottom). The width of these frames is slightly different. The two-piece frame measures 35-1/8” between the framerails immediately behind the body mount in front of the rear wheel. The one-piece frame measures 33-11/16” between the framerails. This measurement is important to determine because our AirBar crossmember is placed in that position.
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 will 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.
- Unequalled ride quality
- Proven patented sealing technology
- Anodized billet aluminum construction
- Eliminates tire clearance problems
To optimize suspension, our ShockWave system allows the replacement of the factory lower arm with our StrongArm lower control arm which is included in this system (Level 2 package also includes the upper control arm upgrade).
Shocks are the heart of every suspension system and are the key component in providing ride control to the driver. The Level 2 system includes the upgrade to our Handling Quality series aluminum shocks, both front and rear.
The HQ shock has an impact forged aluminum body / mono-tube design with adjustable valving. Adjustability Provides More Options for Desired Driving Style and Loads Easy and precise valve adjustment with 26 rebound clicks from soft to firm
(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.
The Bolt-on 4-link from Ridetech, formally known as the Airbar, is a 4-link rear suspension that will directly bolt into the oem leafspring mounts of your prized musclecar... no cutting, no fabrication, just 4 small tabs to weld to the axle for your upper bars. The ride height of your car is typically lowered by approximately 2". The ride quality and performance is dramatically improved over stock... instead of a wallowing soft ride you’ll experience a crisp, controlled ride quality that will inspire more confidence for performance driving.
- The Ridetech 4-Link system lowers vehicle ride height and provides the ability to go even lower when not being driven by lowering the air pressure further.
- Pre-engineered mounting hardware to maintain ground clearance, driveline angles, tire clearance and load capacities
- Bolt-on installation (no fabrication required)
- Greatly improved handling performance
- Ultimate ride quality.
