C10 Build Plans

Buying bolt-on upgrades can be a fun and easy way to upgrade your truck. Many companies make parts to help you reach your goals. These first two C10 Build Plans are based on the idea that you will be working with a stock chassis and front crossmember and keeping the bed floor stock. Most of these parts are simply bolt-ons. Some drilling, grinding, and welding may be required.

Coil Airbag Coilover Shockwave

A-Arms

A-arms may not be your first thought, but they should be. C10's need a lot of help to make them handle, and adding caster with new, custom a-arms is the best fix. New ball joints and bushings is also a plus. These will also help to center the front wheel in the wheel well.

RideTech's new C10 A-arm and mount kit is a new development
in C10 front suspension upgrades. The new design centers the
wheels, adds caster, and fixes the camber geometry. These new
a-arms and mounts are designed for use with coil over shocks or Shockwave Airshocks.

Drop Spindles

If you are going to run coil springs, get the first drop with spindles. These also use '73-'87 style 1-1/4" rotors & calipers. 2-1/2" drop. We have brake packages to fit these spindles as well.

Drop Coils or Bags

If you are running coil springs get the first drop with the spindles, then add coils 1" or 2" additional drop. Airbags will replace the coil springs and are technically 'air'springs. You will still need shocks. Airbag systems will require an on boared compressor/control kit.

The RideTech coil over system uses coil over shocks or Shockwaves for air ride. For comparison, we are using single adjustable HQ Shocks.

Shocks

These are the brains of the suspension. Good, quality shocks will deliver the ride and performance that you're looking for. Shocks are available on many levels, these are our favorites.
