Performance Mode PART 1

SWITCH SUSPENSION, RIDETECH AND PRO PERFORMANCE TEAM UP TO TURN A C/K INTO A SLOT CAR

LIFTED TRUCKS ARE COOL, AND SLAMMED TRUCKS ARE SWEET, BUT HAVE YOU EVER TAKEN A TRUCK BUILT FOR THE CORNERS THROUGH AN AUTOCROSS COURSE? If not, then you haven’t lived. It’s one of the more fun ways to spend an afternoon, and if it’s in your daily driver, it’s even better. Just think about how much fun it would be to canyon carve in a pickup. It’s a blast.

But how do you get it that way? With the right setup, of course. And when Switch Suspension had a customer come in with an ’88-’98 Silverado who wanted it, they called up the specialists: Ridetech. Yes, the company makes airbag kits. But it has also been building performance lowering kits for years now, and the trucks that sport its parts prove themselves on the track all the time. But the suspension is just part of the equation. Speed kills, as they say, and without a good set of brakes, you’ll put that C/K into a wall. Fortunately, Pro Performance makes a set of 14- and 13-inch big brakes that bring older trucks into the modern era. By the time the whole thing was done, the truck was able to take an obstacle course with no problems at all.
