Suspension is the system of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. Suspension systems must support both road holding/handling and ride quality, which are at odds with each other. The tuning of suspensions involves finding the right compromise. It is important for the suspension to keep the road wheel in contact with the road surface as much as possible, because all the road or ground forces acting on the vehicle do so through the contact patches of the tires. The suspension also protects the vehicle itself and any cargo or luggage from damage and wear. The design of front and rear suspension of a car may be different.

    Thoughts on Hammer Hangers shackle hangers?

    I saw an install video of these things and they look badass. Come with a built in skid and give you a bit more lift and articulation? amazing. Is anyone running a set of these? If I order now they won't be delivered in time for my build out, but I'll just throw them on at a later date...

    Best lidt and tire upgrade for a daily driver

    I'm looking to do a lift on my 2017 but I dont want to drastically change the ride or get to crazy with mods. I'm thinking maybe a 2" leveling kit or 3" in the front 2" in the rear, and bigger tires. What's the best lift package out there for what I'm looking for ? Thanks

    This is the first video I’ve ever made. I attempt to guide you through replacing your leaf springs on your own. It’s easy and you shouldn’t pay a shop to do it! Original link: https://youtu.be/aSU77AE97L4

    MaxTrac spindles

    Everyone, I am looking at replacing my upper and lower control arms with Dirt King aftermarket ones. I am also looking at the Maxtrax aftermarket spindles. It adds i think 4 inches to the lift. If anyone has them what lift did you need to add on the back to level it out?

    How far forward have you guys been able to push you caster? And what needs to be done to push it further forward? Im running icon tubular UCAs and with the 295/70 17s I can definitely use some more clearance behind the tires.
