Take a dive into our suspension options, where comfort meets style in the most harmonious way:
Airbags or Coilovers:
Coilovers: For the performance enthusiasts out there, we've got you covered too. Our coilover suspension offers the perfect blend of sportiness and adjustability, with Falcon coilovers shocks and coil springs coupled with all the necessary mounting hardware. Get ready to conquer the road with your own personalized touch.
Level 1: 1-2" inch drop. Slightly lower than stock height and you will not need to cut or modify the bed.
Level 2: 4-6" inch drop. Lower than stock height and you will need to cut an modify the bed.
Airbags: Are you ready to make heads turn? Our airbag suspension option comes complete with the incredible Dominator Airbags + Shock Kit (including shocks and mounting hardware). Enjoy a smooth, controlled ride height on the streets, and when it's time to showcase your ride at car shows or local meet-ups, simply drop your vehicle onto the running boards for that jaw-dropping, "look at me" effect.
Level 3: Frame will lower to the ground.
Now, let's put the "brakes" on and talk about stopping power. Choose from our brake options, tailored to meet your needs. Your brake options include 12", 13" or 14″ rotors. The more horsepower you run, the bigger your brakes should be. If you are going to autocross your truck, then bigger is definitely better. The larger diameter rotor is better and dissipating the extreme heat experienced in racing. See the Wilwood Wheel Clearance Chart to confirm your wheel fitment.
This is kit is designed to work with 5x5" and 5x4.75" bolt patterns, if you are running a different application, let us know.
