NEW PRODUCT ZONE: Detroit Speed & Engineering’s SpeedMAX Front Suspension System

by Detroit Speed & Engineering

1973-1987 GM C10 Trucks

Detroit Speed now offers a new line of suspension products for Chevrolet C10 truck enthusiasts. Continuing to reinforce thoughtfully designed products and modern ride quality, they ensure each driver, whether cruising or hauling, will enjoy the look and feel of their truck.

The Detroit Speed C10 SpeedMAX front suspension is designed for a truck using truck-strength parts and not car-strength parts. It is designed with no compromises and exclusive DSE suspension geometry for superior handling and ride quality at a lowered ride height. This 100% bolt-on front suspension system is based on the later model GMT800 (1999-2006) Silverado truck application. The system utilizes the OE-style GMT800 brake design, which allows for stock or aftermarket brake options. Versions are available with non-adjustable, single adjustable, and dual adjustable shocks.
