Don’t you just love “Before – After” comparisons? It’s even better when the car or truck is rare like this black, first-year square fender owned by Seth at Switch Suspension in Phoenix, Ariz. You rarely see black survivors like this ’73 Cheyenne super/10. Everyone who saw the truck at Dino’s Git Down was beyond jealous. With all of its original trim intact and just the right amount of surface rust, this truck is worth far more than its weight. What’s the very first thing that Seth and crew changed? You guessed it… They replaced the crusty 44 year old suspension with a brand new RideTech coilover suspension system.
Shops like Switch Suspension are the heart and soul of our great hobby. We’re proud to shine the spotlight on our great customer-shops. Switch is keeping the hot rod flame alive and well by servicing the smoking-hot lowered truck market. They sell suspension parts and build some amazing customs —including cars and lifted trucks, as well.
One of the very first shops to get our new 73-87 coilover suspension system kit, Seth can attest to the fact that the new kit totally transformed the ride quality, handling and attitude of his square fender. The result is a perfect mix of classic patina with modern performance. The big-inch American Racing rally wheels complete the look. Air suspension, coilover conversion or traditional leaf/coil upgrades, Switch has sold and installed everything on the market, so we are thrilled that they really like our new coilover system — especially since we are big fans of this particular truck. We’re looking forward to following the rest of this project. Future plans include an LS-based engine swap. If you missed our prior installation article, Seth took some detail shots of the suspension swap. If you want his perspective on the installation, wheel/tire fitment and driving experience, give him a call.
