Our founder was an early pioneer of performance suspensions for the off-road community beginning in 1970. He sold that California based company in the early 1980s with a foundation strong enough that it continues today.
With a strong interest in big rigs and looking for new opportunities he noticed a need created by the fact that the shock technology in the world of 18 wheelers “had not changed much since 1950”. With that simple revelation and his background in suspension design with large companies like GM, the US military, and firetruck manufacturers, from a small office in his home, the Silver Road line of performance shocks developed with their unique design.
We are a family owned business. Lonnie and his wife Jean decided they wanted to live where they always vacationed so they have based their business in beautiful Montrose Colorado to be near some of their 4 kids and many grandchildren. They are involved in the local community both personally and professionally.
We at Silver Road Shocks take pride in the fact that we offer the class 8 truck drivers a better option for their needs. We strive to provide top quality customer service for our retail customers and our dealer network.
