Bolt-on Performance For Your 1965-1979 Ford Truck

The classic Ford F-100 and F-150 platforms present some unique challenges when setting out to build an air suspension system that delivers the ride and handling people have come to expect from Ridetech. Our new systemcompletely revamps every aspect of the truck’s suspension—and is completely bolt-on!

The old Ford was designed and built for a different era—back when the speed limit was 55 and trucks were meant to work hard. While the original twin I-beam front suspension was certainly built “Ford Tough,” it wasn’t exactly built to carve corners.

Our complete bolt-in suspension system for the classic Ford trucks removes the entire factory front crossmember in favor of our bolt-on front crossmember, and replaces the old leaf spring rear with a four-link. This package can be ordered with either Shockwaves or coil-overs, both of which will help get your classic Ford sitting—and performing—better than ever.

Key Features – Front

  • Removes bulky, heavy, poor handling twin I-beam suspension
  • Bolt-in cradle is super strong and strengthens the front of the truck while providing structural mounts front control arms – utilizes substantial “H” style design compared to other “I” style crossmembers
  • Superb suspension geometry, built without compromise – vastly superior to adapted salvage yard “Crown-Vic suspension swaps” or “street rod style” / Mustang II front systems with optimized roll centers and anti-dive
  • Increased camber gain with tall spindle, 5-8 degree’s caster for improved high speed stability
  • Fits 14 inch and larger wheels. If using more than 4.5″ of backspacing,18″ wheels are required
  • Motor mounts options for Modular Ford, Ford FE, and Small Block Ford, Chevy LS / Small Block / Big Block
  • Entire system saves approximately 130 lbs. from the front of the truck

Key Features – Rear

  • Removes factory leaf spring suspension and bracketry
  • Complete parallel 4-link with panhard and c-notches
  • Works with Coil-over or Shockwaves Air Suspension
  • Includes R-Joints on all links for smooth, bind free, quite operation and long life
  • Optimized roll center and anti-squat (60% anti-dive) for amazing traction and elimination of wheel hop
  • High quality satin black powder coat finish
  • Reduces rear weight by 50 lbs.

One Owner Boosted G-Body

It’s no secret that we have some of the greatest customers on earth. Last week, we received an email from Dave Erdmann with pictures of his 1986 Buick T-Type. We’ve long been fans of these GM G-Body cars, both from a looks and performance standpoint. They’re fast, tough and we especially like Dave’s light blue machine.

The best part? Dave’s the original owner. The car has quite the back story; click the box below to learn more.
