New C10 Suspension Kits from Heidts Offer the Ultimate in Versatility
SubheadBolt-on IRS systems give Chevy pickups a lower ride height while improving handling characteristics, & a new frame can be added, too.
Lake Zurich, Illinois: If you’re looking for the ultimate in versatility in a suspension system for your Chevrolet C10 pickup, look no further than all-new bolt-on Independent Rear Suspension kits and frames from Heidts Automotive.
Available for popular 1967-’72 and 1973-’87 C10 models, the systems can be built into three unique kits – set them up as a standard IRS, or add Heidts’ full frame with IRS and IFS, or full frame with IFS and a 4-link rear.
“The C10 market is such a popular application, and with the incredible versatility our all-new Independent Rear Suspension systems and frames bring to the table, builders can create a setup to suit their unique needs,” said Wallace Leyshon of Heidts. “These new kits also give customers who prefer a lower ride height the handling upgrade they’ve been looking for.”
Heidts’ new bolt-on IRS kits work with both long- and short-bed applications, as well as long-bed-to-short-bed conversions. Best of all, they can be installed in a home garage or driveway over a weekend.
The back-half IRS kits allow for a wider tire and lower ride height while providing improved handling without sacrificing ride quality. Adjustable coil-over shocks, Currie Enterprises third members, and C4 or Wilwood brakes round out a complete C10 solution.
Meanwhile, if the original C10 frame is a little too far gone – or if the builder wants the ultimate sleeper – a new Heidts full frame can be loaded with the company’s IRS system and Superide II IFS kit.
Heidts frames are fully boxed for added strength and rigidity with center bracing. The Superide II IFS kits include a heavy-duty crossmember with power steering, adjustable coil-over shocks, Wilwood brakes and a beefy tubular control arm.
A PRO-G IRS or heavy-duty 4 link rounds out the complete package for a great look and even better ride.
