A rough ride can be caused by a failing piston seal inside older shocks and a clunking sound means there's metal-to-metal contact of worn struts. If you notice uneven tire wear, the shocks and struts may not be keeping the vehicle level on the road. A "bounce" test will also help diagnose by pushing on each corner of the car and observing the resting height. If your vehicle bounces more than twice, it's time to go shopping.
How easy is installation?
We estimate installation time to be between 1 and 6 hours so be patient and realistic with your time. Do not remove your springs at home! Research the proper mechanic and their direct experience with your particular vehicle before getting a quote.
What's the difference between body lift and suspension lift?
The long list of upgrades to your off-road vehicle will benefit from a suspension lift. By increasing the ground and tire clearance, your vehicle becomes more durable and better aligned for the trails ahead. Two advantages to a body lift are lower cost and easier installation, but it does put added stress on the suspension and risks future failures.
What's the difference between lowering springs and coilovers?
Like your factory springs, lowering springs are made to support the weight of the vehicle and fit nicely in place of the originals with little to no modification necessary – simply remove the old springs and swap in the new. By lowering your center of mass, your handling and stability will improve. While lowering springs are designed simply to replace your factory springs and play nice with the rest of your existing components, coilovers are an entirely different animal. Unlike lowering springs, coilovers offer a much greater range of adjustability including ride height, spring pre-load, shock damping and rebound.
What's the right amount of lift for my truck?
If the goal for your ride is greater ground-clearance and off-road capabilities, a suspension kit is the way to go. Our kits deliver an overall boost of anywhere from 4" to 6", but, if you're looking to roll with 35" tires or larger, you'll probably need to go north of 4 inches. A leveling kit can deliver the up to 2.5" of additional space you need to clear up to 33" all-terrains. Leveling kits are far less expensive than an entire suspension lift and, therefore, much easier to install. If you want to go higher than a few inches, though, you'll need more suspension components to keep your vehicle in proper alignment.
