Serious custom truck enthusiasts know that Ride Tech, previously known as Air Ride Technologies, has been the leading manufacturer and new product innovator of air suspension systems for many years. Ride Tech has recently introduced their latest innovation-the Shockwave Level PRO convoluted front and rolling sleeve rear air springs with internal or external height sensors. The Level PRO, when teamed up with the Ride PRO E3 system, gives you control with a 3/8-inch thick control panel that comes with backlit control buttons and an auto-dimming digital display. The small control panel can be mounted on the dash, hidden in the glovebox, or you can disconnect the mini USB connector and take the control panel with you. An electronic air suspension management ECU is the brain of the system, and works in conjunction with the air distribution block to continually calibrate weight compression and cross-load compensation automatically, enhancing both ride quality and handling performance. The ECU choreographs the pneumatic control system allowing you to refine your trucks pneumatic suspension with three preset ride height positions and a ride height on start feature.

Ironworks Speed & Kustom in Bakersfield, California, has become the buildup home of "Sublime", and after making another trip up north, we got our fat-fendered '50 'Burban ready for a slammed suspension. The intentions for "Sublime's" profile is to create a hammered look by pancaking the roof, chopping the top, and sectioning the body through the doors. Combine this with the air suspension, and "Sublime's" wheels and tires will tuck deep into its fat fenders when laid out.

We'll show you the mockup installation of the Ride Tech Shockwave front and rear air springs, merged with the Ride Tech Level PRO and Ride PRO E3 systems.
