In stock trim, the factory A-arms cycle in inches. After FST worked its magic, front suspension travel is measured in feet. Front suspension travel is now comfortably more than 1-1/2 feet.

John Rhodes' Ford uses Bilstein 9100-series coilover and bypass shocks at each corner to ensure position-sensitive smoothness is transmitted through the custom 4130 chrome-moly FST upper and lower control arms. When the A-arms slam to the nether regions of compression travel, a Bilstein pneumatic bumpstop controls the last 4 inches of the suspension's upward journey.
