This ShockWave system is designed  to provide the optimal ride quality and ease of installation.  These units are used in conjuction w/ the RideTech Bolt-On 4 Link system for the 60-64 Galaxie, 63-87 C10, 88-98 C1500 & 99-06 Silverado.  They can also be used in custom installations with a solid rear axle and rear weight under 2,000lbs.  

RideTech's patented, integral "shock-within-a-spring" air spring and shock absorber assembly is a proven winner at shows and in motion. 24-position rebound adjustment helps you fine tune the shocks to your driving preferences and vehicle demands. Advanced technology hides within the shocks. The monotube design features large 1.834" pistons, heavy duty 5/8" shafts, and impact-forged bodies. Since HQ Series ShockWaves® are built to perform and made to last, they are backed by RideTech's exclusive 1,000,001 mile warranty. Shock calibrations and air spring specs are based on more than 20 years of extensive air ride development on the street, highways and race tracks. It all adds up to predictable handling that is comparable to CoilOvers but with instant ride height adjustment. You get the best of both worlds. This kit includes two rear rebound adjustable HQ Series ShockWaves®.
