Trolling around the Center Hall at SEMA, we came across a new innovation for a familiar product so simple yet so ingenious that we had to bring it to your attention -- and naturally, the Aussies developed it. K-Mac, a company dedicated to all manner of suspension goodies, has developed a new "Ratchet" system for adjusting your ride height that dispatches with C-wrenches, lock rings and even jacking up your car. Simply grab your electric drill, fit the appropriate socket and you can increase or decrease your ride height with just a few squeezes of your finger. The only two issues that sprung to mind is the accuracy of the height adjustment and how it could play havoc on your camber settings. Regardless, it's utterly cool and entirely too easy. Applications for the front are universal (simply cut the strut to length and wrench it down) and the rear arrangement is made for the Mustang, GTO, BMW E36, E46, and Z4, plus anything running the last generation of the Mercedes E-Class (i.e. Charger, 300 and Magnum).
We've got a video of the "Ratchet" system in action after the jump.
