Ford F150 Rancho Susepnsion Quicklift Leveling Kit - Flatter FordPosted in How To: Suspension Brakes on January 1, 2010
Increased fuel economy regulations have had a serious effect on new trucks. One of the most obvious is the front rake of the new half-tons. Luckily the aftermarket is fulfilling the leveling kit craze, with companies like Rancho leading the way. However, the Rancho Quicklift kit offers something spacer lifts don't: a new shock that doesn't promote ball joint or CV axle bind or reduce wheel travel.
We recently visited the secret Rancho research and development laboratory and had an '09 F-150 transformed from leaning to level before lunchtime. Then before we headed to the local taco stand we also upgraded the rear shocks to Rancho RS9000XLs and added the new MyRide remote shock adjustment system. By the middle of the day we had a new truck sitting on 35-inch-tall tires with a suspension that could be finely tuned from the driver's seat.
