3 Suspension Upgrades for your Chevy C10 Truck
If you’re building or driving a 1963-1987 Chevrolet C10 and looking to upgrade your suspension, here’s a couple options your can order and install over the weekend.
C10 Adjustable Shocks
If your truck is stock, lowered or running air bags, a good set of adjustable shocks will make the world of difference with your coil springs or airbags. The benefit of adjustable shocks is that you gain the option to tune the damping of your shock for a softer or firmer ride. Your springs support your vehicle and your shock controls the spring.
The more adjustability you have in your rebound and compression adjustment in your shocks – the better you’ll be able to control your spring and improve your truck’s ride quality and overall drivability.

C10 Coilovers with Tubular Control Arms
Upgrading to fully adjustable C10 Coilovers is a great way to improve suspension geometry, cornering capability as well as the overall stance of your classic Chevy or GMC truck.
Our fully bolt-on coilover kits are designed to use your C10’s factory crossmember to add fully adjustable coilovers with tubular upper and lower control arms. By adding coilovers to your front end, you can raise and lower your ride height to get your stance exactly where you want your truck to ride.
Running adjustable coilovers also allows you to tune your shocks to get the best ride quality possible. Tubular control arms offer improved geometry to get your truck lower and improve overall handling in your classic pickup.
