Muscle cars have always been the backbone of hot rodding Now they are hotter than ever! The problem is nobody wants to put up with the ride quality, handling, and braking technology of 40 years ago. After driving a new Camaro or Mustang, the compromises of a standard leaf spring suspension just don’t cut it! Now there is a solution……

The Ridetech Bolt-On 4-Link installs onto the OEM leaf spring mounts of your prized muscle car… no cutting, no fabrication, just four small tabs to weld to the axle for your upper bars. The ride height of your car is typically lowered by approximately 2”. The ride quality is dramatically improved over stock… instead of a wallowing soft ride, you’ll experience a crisp, controlled ride quality that will inspire more confidence for performance driving.

The area of largest improvement is the handling and cornering performance. The system eliminates the OEM leaf spring and replaces them with a 4-link rear suspension. The 4 link bars offer more precise positioning of the rear axle to eliminate flexing and increase stability through the corners. When combined with a ShockWave or a Ridetech Coil-Over front suspension kit your classic muscle car can now enjoy the benefits of modern handling and ride-quality technology.  The R-Joint rod ends combine the best qualities of low friction movement, lateral stability, full range articulation, and quiet operation into one special bearing that is as home on the street as it is on the racetrack!

If you want your classic muscle car to ride and drive like a modern performance car, the Bolt-On 4-Link system is the perfect solution!

We wouldn’t expect you to bolt on any suspension component we haven’t thoroughly tested. We regularly use our cars in a wide range of performance driving environments and plain ol’ highway time. Our 4-Link systems have proven time and time again to provide not only ground-shaking traction but a great highway ride as well.

  • Now includes R-Joints!   Compatible with mini-tubs.
  • Optional weld-on lower axle brackets are available if using an aftermarket axle housing without stock style leaf spring pads.   Part # 70010122, sold separately.
