Ridetech launches air suspension for classic Ford Galaxies

Bolt-in setup offers ride-height adjustment


 “Ever since its debut in the late-’50s, the full-size Galaxie has been a favorite of Ford fans around the globe,” Ridetech notes, adding, “After a great deal of research and testing, we’re excited to announce that we now have a full bolt-in suspension system available for 1965-1972 Galaxies. This will make your car ride smoother and handle better than ever.”

Ridetech says the ShockWave front air suspension replaces coil spring and shock with Firestone air spring and Fox Factory single-adjustable mono-tube aluminum shock.

At the rear, a CoolRide system features specific brackets to adapt the air spring to the factory coil-spring mounts. Adjustable bump stops are included for the rear.

Ridetech points out that no cutting, welding or fabrication is needed for installation.

The system is ride-height adjustable.

“Compressor systems feature the 4-way RidePro valves, dual Thomas compressors, 5-gallon aluminum tank, wiring harness with weather-tight connectors and all necessary airlines and fittings,” the Indiana-based company adds. 

“Choose either the old-school Analog control panel or the modern RidePro E5 digital-control system. The RidePro E5 control system is also available in a preassembled AirPod configuration for easy installation.”

The suspension setup retails for $1,900.
