Auto Adjust Shocks
We've designed suspension systems for
Fords for years, looking to fine tune them even further, we custom designed
our own automatically adjusting shocks.

COMPRESS... SHOCKS CONTROL REBOUND!
Our shocks are valved 70% rebound, 30% compression,
letting the springs do their job, control compression. Our shocks smooth out
the ride by controlling rebound. The combination of 10 stage auto speed adjusting
valves with the all weather, multi viscosity fluid enables these shocks to maintain
the consistent performance level we demand for on and off-road driving.
valved shocks use equal pressure for both directions. This creates a choppy
ride, caused by overheated shocks trying to control compression.
High quality construction,
built to last. Limited lifetime warranty to original purchaser. TO

are the advantages of changing my suspension?
Stock suspensions were designed primarily for
improved road use and safety with little consideration for true off-roading. We
know that our customers are outdoor adventurers who travel the back roads and
beyond. We consider this type of use and on-road safety when designing our suspensions.
A suspension lift raises the frame and body from the differentials and wheels,
allowing the use of larger tires which increases the ground clearance under the
axles in order to clear trail obstacles. Attention to wheel travel and overall
ride quality is an important consideration in the design of our suspension lifts.
The improved traction and wheel travel directly translates into how well a vehicle
will traverse any terrain. A vehicle properly equipped for off-road use causes
less damage to our trails.
Progressive Rate Coil Springs?
A performance oriented suspension and a smooth
ride-our progressive rate coils offer the best of both worlds. Our progressive
coil as opposed to a stock single rate coil; the rate gradually increases as
the coil compresses. The upper wraps are softer for a more comfortable street
ride; the middle rates are a bit firmer to handle bumps and dips without jarring;
and the last few wraps are a higher rate so that they control the up travel
to prevent bottoming out.
Since coils have a softer initial rate they also will deliver more suspension
travel than a single rate coil. The softer rate allows the tires to stay on
the ground; providing better traction and handling. The progressive nature of
the spring also allows for better and more predictable handling by helping keep
the vehicle flatter in the corners and limiting body lean.

size can vary depending on wheel offset, wheel width and tire tread design.
These sizes are based on a 15x8 wheel with 3.5" backspace. These tire sizes
are a general guide line because a wider tire or offset rim can cause interference
with the sheet metal. A large lugged mud tire will also require more clearance
or a shorter overall height in order to clear compared to an All-Terrain tread
style. A 2" body lift will generally allow a 1.5" to 2" taller
and wider tire to be used. For even more clearance, fender flares can be
added and the sheet metal trimmed to clear the tires. Keep in mind that installing
taller tires may require a ring and pinion gear change or the addition of performance
add-ons for the engine or both modifications. On models up to 1989 we highly
recommend upgrading to stronger later model axles when more horsepower and bigger
tires are combined. Larger tires will also affect the ratio that the speedometer
reads and thereby may show a slower speed than actual speed.
