Air4Link

The RideTech 4-link system is where the rear suspension starts, it's responsible for holding the rear axle of the vehicle so it's importance to your suspension design should not be overlooked. It requires some welding, but it is a simple and very effective way to upgrade your vintage suspension.

The Air4Link can be equiped with a RideTech air suspension system or coilover by using our cross member kit. The Air4Link comes in two designs, triangulated and parallel, each with their own advantages. To read more about the differences of these two designs check our tech page.

Installing a RideTech 4-Link is the best upgrade you can do to improve the ride quality of your streetrod. Leaf springs are a great solution, but if your looking for a design that is more rigid and easier to adjust, then you will want to look into a RideTech Air4Link

AIRoverLeaf

This is our simplest, cost effective and easiest to install air ride system. There are a great number of finished vehicles out there that use a leafspring rear suspension.

The AIRoverLeaf system offers a great ride quality and extra load capacity without re-engineering your vehicle. Lowering is accomplished by removing 1 or 2 leafsprings. The airspring is then inflated to restore load capacity, ride height and spring rate.

The AIRoverLeaf system is completely bolt-on kit that comes with airsprings and requires little or no modification to your vehicle. The Ridetech Small Overload Style Compressor Kit is recommended to properly control the AIRoverLeaf system.

Prices starting at: $250.00

The classic, standard, non-electronic RidePRO systems use the highest quality valve bodies, compressors, and components to deliver dependable and repeatable manual control. Manual controls provide the basic ability to inflate or deflate an air suspension.


The high tech electronic RidePro control system can use only air pressure sensors to control ride height presets or with added LevelPRO digital right height sensors the system intelligently utilizes both air pressure and ride height information to accuratly adjust vehicle suspension level.

RidePRO and LevelPRO systems are available in the AirPOD configuration that places components into a compact easy to install unit. The AirPOD can save as much as 10 to 15 hours of install time and provides a super clean installation.

RideTech is now offering street rod suspension packages. Kits include both front and rear springs, shocks, and a triangulated 4-link. There are three levels of packages, for buget builders to performance seekers. Each package has many different applications
