We recently realized that there is a massive part of our market that we tend to forget about when we choose our tech projects. How many readers out there have had a nice clean and custom classic truck like this gold and white Chevy C10 for many years already? Rolling on a set of 20-inch wheels with custom control arms, spindles, and springs? This would be off the charts on the cool scale if this were 1995, but fast-forward to 2023 and it’s not so exciting anymore, right?
We are all about the #GoDriveIt lifestyle when we customize our classics, which means that this 1968 Chevy C10 we still haven’t named is next on the project list here at Street Trucks Garage. This truck has your standard ’90s coil-suspension drop and a set of American Racing 20-inch wheels. An older model LS from a Corvette is stuffed in the engine bay, although it’s coming out in the next couple issues. Why do all this to an already cool-looking truck? For just that reason; it’s just cool-looking right now, but we want a truck that is impressive to look at but even more impressive to drive!
To upgrade our classic Chevy C10 truck to a modern driving feel and performance, this new coilover suspension kit comes with everything you need to convert your frontend to coilovers with rack-and-pinion steering. The powered rack-and-pinion will give us quicker steering and a tighter feel on the wheel. We will also swap out the rear suspension with QA1’s coilover conver-sion kit before finishing it all off with QA1 front and rear sway bars. Now let’s talk parts!
