The 104 ShockWave Series
Although your specific vehicle may not be listed, we have a variety ofShockWaves that are designed to work with just about whatever setupyou’re using. Whether you’re replacing your current coilovers, or starting afresh build we can suit your air suspension needs.
Independent front and / or Independent rear installations on vehicles weighing 1200-2000 lbs. per axle.
NOT recommended for solid axle rear applications... not enough travel, too much load capacity.
Load capacity: 2140 lbs. @ 100 psi

Concerning Sleeve Style ShockWaves
A sleeve style airspring or ShockWave typically has a lower load capacity and longer travel than a double convoluted style unit. That is why they are normally used in a rear application. RideTech has now developed a larger 104mm [6.5"] diameter ShockWave that offers the best of both worlds...the softer linear spring rate of a sleeve style airpsring AND the higher load capacity provided by the 104mm diameter. It is EXACTLY the same dimensions as the 6.5" double convoluted style unit but offers an even better ride quality.
You will note that some of the very heavy vehicles such as Cadillacs, Impalas, and trucks may still perform best with the progressive spring rate of the double convoluted style ShockWave. In addition, the 104mm sleeve style ShockWave cannot be run “upside down”. For all those applications we still provide the traditional style double convoluted style ShockWaves.
Ride Quality Series
The Ride Quality ("RQ") series is a great entry level solution. It still retains all the mounting and installation advantages of the other shock series. With fixed shock valving, the RQ series is designed to optimize ride quality while leaving out the guess work.
The quality of the monotube aluminum body shock will last for years of reliable service, and is an excellent choice for the price conscious buyer.
