Shocks are the heart of every suspension system. Sure, springs & control arms keep a vehicle suspended, but shocks actually provide control to the driver. That’s why RideTech has kept up with the latest shock technology, offering several lines of shock options separated into “series”. Each series is tailored to a certain application that optimizes performance, adjustability, and cash savings where they matter. RideTech offers shocks standalone, for CoolRide air systems, ShockWaves, and Coilovers.

View the advantages of each shock series below:

Handling Quality Series – HQ

The Handling Quality (“HQ”) series features adjustable shock valving. It is housed in a lightweight aluminum impact forged construction that is available in a wide range of stroke lengths and mounting styles to fit a large variety of applications.

Track Quality Shocks – TQ

This newest addition to the Ridetech shock line goes beyond the typical double adjustable units that have been popular; the TQ shock has a single rebound adjustment and a DUAL stage [high speed and low speed] compression adjustment.

It uses a remote reservoir that is connected with a 30″ braided line for easy installation in a variety of installation applications. The high speed adjustment allows tuning for impact harshness… potholes, speedbumps, offroad use, and other harsh road irregularities that might induce a high speed excursion of the piston rod. The low speed adjustment allows tuning of ride quality, as well as the general cornering characteristics of typical road course and racetrack use. It is currently the ultimate choice for autocrossing, track days, drag racing, and other extreme environment use.


  • Single rebound adjustment PLUS dual stage high & low speed compression
  • Aluminum impact forged shock construction for leak free operation
  • Monotube design allows large piston for superior oil control, ride quality, and handling
  • Available in a wide range of stroke lengths and mounting styles to fit large variety of applications
  • Remote reservoir includes mounting brackets for easy installation
