New StreetGRIP Suspension System For 1988-1998 Chevrolet C1500 Pickups


RideTech reinvents the original Sport Truck with the introduction of a lowering system that dramatically improves ride and handling while maintaining load capacity.
Jasper, IN - RideTech is proud to announce the addition of 1988-1998 C1500 pickups to its StreetGRIP line of affordable suspension systems. Twenty years ago, the 1988 Chevy C1500 launched the Sport Truck craze. Tens of thousands of enthusiasts lowered and dressed up their trucks. We all had fun, but the lowering technology of the time often sacrificed ride quality and load capacity in the name of appearance. Since then, the custom truck community has learned how to add real performance suspension to older 63-87 C10's and even older 3100 series trucks. Times have changed and so have expectations. Now the technology comes full circle.
The new RideTech StreetGRIP suspension system features a heavy duty C-Notch design that is significantly longer and stronger than other C-Notches to add axle clearance without sacrificing load capacity. Beyond the sturdy foundation, the system features custom-valved monotube shock absorbers. These premium quality shocks offer adjustable rebound and forged bodies. The shocks are so good that they carry a 1,000,001-mile warranty. RideTech provides custom matched coil springs and forged dropped spindles to get the front of your truck low. Powder-coated, heavy duty shock relocating brackets maintain an effective angle. Grade 8 hardware finishes off the complete, bolt-on system.
How does the new system work? Driving is believing, but we can tell you that the StreetGRIP system helps these old GMT400 aka OBS (old body style) pickups live up to the name "Sport Truck". Ride quality is on par with a brand new GMT900 and handling is on par with most resto-mod muscle cars. Furthermore, if you have C10 fever, it might be time to take a good hard look at the 88-98 C1500. Prime examples can be found for less than $5000. Compared to similar C10's, that should free up some budget to add RideTech's StreetGRIP suspension along with the right set of wheels and tires.
