Bolt-in 4-Link for the 2nd Gen Camaro/Firebird


Check out RideTech’s new Bolt-On 4-Link System for the second gen F-Cars

RideTech is proud to introduce an all-new 4-Link rear suspension system specifically for the 1970-1981 Camaro and Firebird. The system is engineered to deliver exceptional performance with minimal cutting and welding required. Equally important, the unique design addresses production variations and frame rail thickness issues that are common to the second-generation F-Body platformRideTech

RideTech developed an innovative “uni-cradle” design that is significant in two ways. Lateral tubes index off the leaf spring mounting points rather than the frame rails. A separate steel brace bolts to the inside of the rear bulkhead area (in the cockpit) behind the seat to locate the forward mounting points of the upper link bars.

The clean-sheet design offers long upper link bars with revised mounting points for improved roll center, forward bite and anti-squat characteristics. The rear bulkhead in these cars (structure between passenger compartment and trunck) exhibit excellent strength — especially where the bulkhead ties into the floorpan at the transmission tunnel.

RideTech 3RideTech engineered a brace that bolts to both the bulkhead and the rear edge of the transmission tunnel while still allowing you to run a full back seat. Simple holes are drilled into the bulkhead without any welding of the unibody structure.

The two “uni-cradle” main tubes run parallel to the frame rails as well as the upper shock crossmember and forward lower link brackets. These main tubes bolt to the fore and aft leaf spring eye mounting points. The leaf spring mounting points accurately locate the entire system to circumvent common production variances from 12 years of manufacturing.

The RideTech 2nd Gen 4-Link can be used with Coilovers or ShockWaves and comes complete with the uni-cradle, adjustable upper bars with R-Joint, non-adjustable lower bars with R-Joints, all mounting brackets and hardware. It’s available for pre-order and will start shipping mid-December!
