Hey everyone.

I am looking into front and rear suspension improvements and was looking into the stuff from Heidts, but also found some interesting stuff coming out of Australia by the RRS guys..

Does anyone have any experience with the RRS Products? Their bolt-in solutions look pretty cool and very customizable.

Any help/opinions would be great.

Thanks

Jo

I have not, but I have seen those and have not ruled them out for the front. I'll be curious if someone has used them too. On the rear of my '70, I just had Eaton Detroit make me some customized heavy duty leaf springs and installed some KYB gas-a-justs.

On the front of my 71 Ranchero I went with Quick Time tubular a arms,  Aldan coil  overs, converted the PS to hydroboost to get rid of the Ford ram and junk hanging down and switched from the stock Ford brakes to Wilwood front and back. All so added the Borgerson steering gear.
In the rear I installed a Roush-Yates Detroit locker with Strange Axels.
On the springs I used Calvert mono leafs and their traction bars.
All though not as nice as the RRS system it was a lot cheaper.
