Video How-To: Installing a Ridetech StreetGrip Suspension System

The Ridetech StreetGrip suspension was one of the most talked-about new products at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas last November. You can find out what all the buzz was about by reading this article, but the Cliff’s Notes version of the story is the complete suspension package brings modern handling to classic muscle cars.

Ridetech offers the StreetGrip suspension for earlier-model F-bodies and A-bodies, including vintage Chevrolet Chevelles. At a recent Goodguys Show, the Ridetech guys installed one of the new packages on a 1968 Chevelle. You can check out the entire process in this video, which also includes some pretty good tips to make the installation as painless as possible.

    I have a 1991 Mazda 2200 pickup single cab, short bed. I’m interested only in daily driving fun and reliable transportation, not particularly harsh, but totally controllable handling. I’m using a Ford 3.5 ecoboost v6 from a ’12 F-150, and stick from a 5.0 Mustang. My questions, 1). your suggestions for rear suspension? I want a posi-trac, one that will stay put. 2). what kind of front suspension can be put under this thing, again, control and handling. It has torsion springing,(replace?) I’ll have added weight of course. I want power steering.
    Your suggestions? I’m not trying to impress anyone but myself, I’ve had a lifetime of work, now it’s time to actually build something.
