Q: How much effort is required to install?
A: Kits install in 2-4 hours. Minimal drilling is required. Welding and bed removal are not required. Detailed instructions are provided for every system we offer.
Q: Can I use lift blocks, add-a-packs, full replacement leaf packs, etc?
A: Yes to all. Kits are designed around factory geometry but are easily adaptable with spacers to accommodate differing leaf spring curvatures. U-bolt lengths are specified upon (Superduties) check out (see picture for measuring instructions). We enjoy working with customers to get them exactly what they need. Please contact us if you have application questions.
Q: I already have an air compressor/air management system on-board? Can I keep it? Or... Do I need an onboard compressor?
A: Yes, keep your air system and tie it into our kit as you see fit. If you simply want to manually fill and vent the bags we include the air components required to do so. Keep the airbags vented with the open ball valve when not using them. Venting them will maximize your suspension's performance.
Q: Will the (Superduty) kit interfere with my 5th wheel or Gooseneck frame brackets?
A: The Universal System is compatible with or without the Ford OEM fifth wheel prep package. It may also be compatible some non oem bracketry. Contact us to discuss your application.
Q: What is the load capacity of the airbags?
A: At 100 psi each bag force is around 1500 lbs, or 3000 lbs total. The airbags are USA made and rated to handle 250 psi.
Q: Are tools required to install the spacer?
A: No. It is custom designed with a spring loaded quick release latch and can be installed with just one hand.
Q: How much suspension travel will the system allow?
A: Droop travel is unlimited. Compression travel varies by truck and the leaf spring employed. Generally speaking the truck will only be limited by its available shock stroke and/or axle bump stops. Typically a minimum of 6" of compression travel is available.
Q: Can you support custom applications / configurations / colors etc.?
A: Yes. Please contact us to discuss. Our roots exist in "out of the box" solutions.
