The Level 1 system offers a more economical solution to gain the advantage of riding on air. The front CoolRide system is a simple bolt-on install. The air springs come complete with brackets and hardware for proper mounting. The 4-link will position the rear more precisely and eliminate the flexing and instability of the leafspring rear. The 3 gallon compressor system provides 4 way independent controls with the use of the RidePro valve block and comes with easy to use analog gauges and electronic switches for accurate control.
This is where "Air Ride Technology" begins and is still a valuable solution for many applications. The CoolRide system replaces the traditional coil-spring and shock with an air spring and shock as separate units. CoolRide systems are engineered to perform and come with all hardware and brackets. The CoolRide system will raise and lower the vehicle, improving the handling and offering a terrific ride.
- 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 Pre-engineered mounting hardware to maintain ground clearance, driveline angles, tire clearance and load capacities.
The Ridetech Bolt-On 4-Link system, formally known as the Airbar, replaces OEM leafsprings entirely. We have designed several specific systems for late model full size and mini trucks. A Ridetech 4-link system will lower your truck as much as 10” while improving handling and load capacity. Installation is completely bolt-on affair with no welding or fabrication necessary. For the customer that wants a bolt-on system with no fabrication or welding, Ridetech has the answer!
- 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.
Shocks are the BRAINS of your suspension! Nothing influences how your car rides and handles more than shock absorbers. If you could pick only one thing to change on your car to get the most overall improvement...upgrade the brains of your suspension…the shocks! It took us 16 years to find shock technology that we felt was worthy of our customers. After engaging the expertise of FOX Racing Shocks, we felt we were able to bring the already crowded shock market a product that was both unique and improved.
1.) Mono-tube design allows large piston for superior oil control – increases ride quality and handling performance
2.) 1/2" hardened shaft is precision ground and straightened to a tolerance of .001" inch for increased durability and performance
3.) Billet end cap with integrated debris wiper to prevent seal damage
4.) Teflon piston wiper allows consistent piston/bore contact and repeatable performance
5.) Oversized rod guide improves piston rod stability
6.) Integral internal bumpstop eliminates extension crashing
7.) Mono-tube bore is cathode anodized for years of wear resistance
8.) Hard coat external anodizing ensures years of lasting beauty and performance
9.) Specially contoured composite gas separator cup optimizes dead length and ensures proper nitrogen/oil separation
10.) Mono-tube design not only optimizes performance, but uses fewer components than a twin tube design. This is superior fluid control in its most simple and efficient form!
Twin-Tube vs Mono-Tube
The mono-tube design is the choice of nearly all high end and OEM and extreme performance shock manufacturers. Its main advantage is that a larger piston and a more efficient oil flow path leads to cooler operating temps and more consistent performance in extreme environments.
Compressor / Control System
We have equipped our Level 1 package with our basic analog compressor system outfitted with a single compressors and a 3 gallon tank. This kit gives you 4 wheel independent control and includes 2 dual needle gauges to monitor air pressure.
