Ridetech SEMA New Products Preview

Some big things have been happening around Ridetech ahead of the 2019 SEMA Show. You may have heard that the company has become part of the Fox Factory team. Some have asked what changes might result from the acquisition. The answer is more new products and innovation than ever. With added resources from Fox, Ridetech Engineering is developing new products for a wider range of applications including systems for newer GMT900 2007-2013 Silverado and Sierra pickups as well as classics such as 1964-1972 A-Body and 1958-1964 B-Body Chevrolets. 

Ridetech is also celebrating neo-classics such as 88-98 C1500 pickups and 89-96 C4 Corvettes. These affordable platforms respond well to upgrades. Enthusiasts are moving toward these cars and trucks because clean, rust-free examples are readily available. For most of us, performance upgrades are easier than restoration work.

Ridetech has been hard at work producing all-new Musclebar sway bars for nearly 30 fitments. Many more applications are in development. Our investment-cast bar end technology is revolutionizing the suspension tuning world by providing more positive end link engagement and improved consistency. Using the most advanced CNC tube bender in the business, Ridetech is achieving its goal of building the best fitting, most accurate sway bars in the business.

Here’s a look at just some of the new products available from Ridetech.

C4 Corvette Coilovers
Chevrolet made 358,180 C4 Corvettes. There are thousands of pampered examples for sale at affordable prices. Throughout the years, the C4 platform evolved with the best examples built between 1989 and the final year of production in 1996.  Ridetech offers a StreetGrip tuning system with shocks, sway bars and bushings as well as a complete coilover conversion system. Both systems deliver modern ride quality and handling. Your C4 Corvette, equipped with Ridetech’s coilover system will hunt late-model super cars.
