Universal Rear HQ 8000 Series Shockwaves W/ 5.2" Stroke & 2" Stud Mount - Ridetech 21150805

The HQ Series of suspension systems from Ridetech showcases single adjustable shock valving. Crafted from impact forged aluminum, these systems boast durability and resilience. With a variety of stroke lengths and mounting styles available, the HQ series can seamlessly fit into a wide range of applications.

For those seeking a smaller diameter and longer stroke, Ridetech offers the 8000 series ShockWave. While this model may have a reduced load capacity, it compensates with a softer spring rate that is suitable for vehicles equipped with a solid rear axle. The spring rate and load capacity of this model depend on the profile of the lower piston. A straight piston provides a consistent spring rate throughout its travel, while a tapered lower piston offers a more progressive spring rate reminiscent of a double convoluted airspring.

Ridetech's commitment to quality and innovation shines through their HQ Series and 8000 series ShockWave. These suspension systems not only enhance handling and performance but also cater to a diverse range of vehicles and preferences.
