RideTech 11296211 1965-66 Impala Rear Coilover System, TQ Upgrade
Upgrade Suspension Kit Type, Coilover Spring Type, Shocks Included, Bolt-On
This Rear Coil-Over System is specifically designed for the 1965-1966 Chevy "B" Body cars and includes everything needed to provide a lowered stance with dramatically improved handling and ride quality. The system contains rear upper and lower StrongArms with adjustable upper and panhard bar, rear HQ Series Coil-Overs shocks.
1965-1966 Chevrolet "B" Body includes Impala, Bel Air, Biscayne & Caprice.
- HQ Series Coil-Overs utilize an impact forged aluminum body and Monotube design to deliver excellent ride quality and handling. They allow fine-tuning of the ride quality and handling and come standard with a 1,000,0001 Mile Warranty.
- Rear StrongArms provide added strength to help get the power to the pavement. They utilize R-Joint Technology to provide smooth operation and reduce roll bind. The lower arms feature a double sheer mount for the coil-overs locating them in place of the stock springs, keeping the load where is belongs. The upper arm and panhard bar are adjustable, allowing the axle to be centered and pinion angle to be set.
For customers who are looking to wring out every last bit of performance from their car, a single rebound adjustment might not provide enough fine-tuning, so we also offer our TQ (Track Quality) racing shocks. TQ Series shocks are full of racing technology and build quality, and just like the HQ shocks, they will take whatever you can throw at them on the track or the street.
The advantage of the TQ shock is additional adjustment of compression in both high speed and low-speed ranges. This extra level of adjustment can turn a good handling car or truck into an amazing handling car or truck. Do you need the extra adjustment? Well, that is one of the trickiest questions we have to answer around here at Ridetech.
3-way adjustable TQ Series shocks from Ridetech provide more adjustment but also require more forethought to dial-in correctly. For racer’s chasing that extra 5%, TQ Series shocks are the way to go.
Typically, the driver who “needs” triple adjustable shocks has reached a point on the car or truck where they have maxed out the performance in every other area – and we don’t just mean the hardware. Driver experience and understanding of suspension control is the most important factor when determining the suitability of a triple adjustable shock. In fact, until the driver has reached a point where they are skilled at diagnosing and tuning suspension dynamics with shocks, they may very well find themselves struggling with the additional adjustments and actually making things significantly more difficult to dial in a car or truck to where they want it.
For the drivers who are willing to invest the extra effort of utilizing the high and low-speed compression adjustment, the Ridetech TQ Series triple adjustable racing shocks can dial in the car or truck to the next level of performance – either on the track or on the road. By isolating the high and low-speed compression, the driver gains the ability to adjust how the car reacts to both bumps and road irregularities (high speed), as well as cornering forces (low speed) separately.
The TQ series triple adjustable remote reservoir shocks provide all the tuning and adjustability for even the most serious racer – yet still can be tuned for great on-road ride.
So at the end of the day, what shock is right for you? Well, we are confident you will be happy to have our “racing shocks” on your car, and we would like nothing more than to help you figure out how to dial them in to get your car or truck to ride or handle exactly how you want it to.
Here’s a set of TQ Series Racing shocks being built in Ridetech’s Jasper Indiana Shock Lab.
In fact, if you are the customer who finds yourself trying to extract that extra thousandth-of-a-second on the track, and you think more adjustment or a different kind of adjustment (i.e. more digressive or linear valving) would get you there… Ridetech can handle that, too. Ridetech builds shocks right in Jasper, Indiana and can cook in all kinds of special / race-specific valving to get your ride exactly where you want it to be.
