When I see a Corvette, the first thing that comes to mind is America's real sports car that delivers styling, power, handling, and braking; the complete testosterone package.

We are seeing more and more, '67-'72 Chevy/GM C10 pickup suspensions being upgraded by installing Corvette suspensions, aided by pneumatic 'bags. The Corvette suspension upper and lower control arms, spindle, and brake calipers are all constructed from aluminum, minimizing unsprung weight on each corner. By eliminating suspension weight, it will improve the vehicle's braking and cornering.

Mario Romero from Top Line Performance in Huntington Beach, California, installed the suspension from an '86 C4 Corvette onto a '72 Chevy C10 frame with coilover shocks. Unfortunately, the front shocks and springs weren't strong enough to carry the weight of the heavy '72 Chevy C10. The rear ride height was fine, but something had to be done about the sagging front suspension. So, it was decided to install an Air Ride Technologies two-way Ride-Pro System with a pair of SKW 1030 Shockwave integral air spring/shocks, to give the front C4 Corvette suspension vertical agility.

Follow along, as Don Williamson installed the Air Ride Technologies system.
