Performance Suspension System 5
These systems include our original style front shock hoops and 2 additional shocks to aid in the front end handling department. The addition of extra shocks will firm up the ride and give improved cornering and body roll control.
Includes front coils, 14 pc. bushing kit, rear 11 leaf pack springs, rear spring and shackle bushing kit, 6 Extreme shocks with boots, U-bolts and front shock hoops. Trac bar drop bracket is included with 3.5" systems.
WE RECOMMEND upgrading the stock diameter U-bolt kit included in this system to our Extreme Duty U-Bolt Kit for only $50.
The force and stress placed on stock components by off-roading is enormous. We noticed that we were bending the stock u-bolt plates so we set out to build some that could take abuse. We also noticed the stock 1/2" u-bolts are pretty weak. It may seem kind of simple to take a piece of thick metal and drill some holes. We have seen those types of plates. The problem is the edge of a plate like this causes a ridged pressure point and can cause the spring to break at that point. We invested in tooling that routers the edge of our plates. In doing so we are able to keep a stock type edge which compliments the spring when it's articulating. These are a must have for trail runners and rock crawlers. Keep your rear axle and springs mounted solid!
You will need to add a drop pitman arm (see below) to keep the draglink and trac bar in alignment unless you already have one or are using the inside of the frame F100 2WD steering box conversion. Call us if you have any questions.
