Heidts showing new independent suspension kits for C-10


Heidts Automotive will unveil at the SEMA Show next week in Las Vegas two new bolt-on independent rear suspension kits designed for easy installation and to lower ride height and provide enhanced handling of 1967-1972 and 1973-1987 Chevrolet C-10 pickup trucks.

The C-10 has become very popular for restoration projects and especially resto-mod efforts.

“The C-10 market is such a popular application, and for good reason,” Heidts’ Wallace Leyshon is quoted in the company’s news release.

 “These new kits give customers who prefer a lower ride height the quality handling they have been looking for.” 

The kits are available for long- and short-bed applications, “and even allow a long bed to short bed conversion,” the company said. “Best of all, this kit can be bolted on and installed in a home garage or driveway in a weekend.

“The back-half kit allows for a wide tire and lower ride height without sacrificing ride quality while providing the ultimate handling. Adjustable coilover shocks, Currie 3rd members, and C4 or Wilwood brakes round out a complete solution for your C-10.”

Company also offers new C-10 frames

In addition to the suspension kits, Heidts will show a new replacement C-10 frame that has been fully boxed and features center bracing for additional rigidity.
