Ridetech TruLink Rear Suspension System 1964-1972 GM A-Body
Tune up your 1964-1972 GM A-body chassis with RideTech’s TruLink Adjustable Rear Suspension System. Achieve significantly better handling and launch characteristics along with dramatically improved ride quality and service life. The comprehensive system features heavy duty tubular control arms equipped with patent-pending R-Joints plus application-tuned HQ Series adjustable shock absorbers. We replace your car’s flex-prone stamped upper and lower control arms with precision-welded tubular steel StrongArms constructed from heavy duty 1.5” OD .156 wall DOM steel tube. The end result is less flex for more predictable handling and launch characteristics.
StrongArm rear control arms are precision welded at our Jasper, Indiana factory and then powder-coated for long-lasting appearance. We install patent-pending R-Joint rod ends and bearings for noise-free, high articulation movement with zero stiction. R-Joints eliminate the binding, stiction, noise and vibration associated with poly bushings offered in most aftermarket control arms. R-Joints never need lubrication and have exceptional wear resistance. For ultimate articulation, the TruLink system features press-in R-Joints for your axle to upper control arm attachment points. This critical feature is often overlooked in the upgrade process.
The final piece in the TruLink system is a pair of RideTech HQ Series adjustable monotube shock absorbers. We custom-valve them specifically for the A-Body platform with modern tires. We provide rebound adjustment to help you fine tune compliance. With a few turns of the adjusting knob, you can tune rebound damping to suit both your car’s needs and your personal preferences. RideTech HQ Series shocks offer an industry-exclusive 1,000,001 mile warranty.
We’re confident that TruLink is the most comprehensive bolt-on rear suspension system ever offered for GM A-Bodies. It’s also the most versatile design on the market. As your needs and budget grow, you can add matching HQ Series front shocks, StreetGRIP high performance coil springs and an adjustable MuscleBar™ rear sway bar. Down the line, you can upgrade to adjustable coilovers or Shockwaves with matching TruTurn front suspension. See recommended parts below.
