What: Top Gun Customz Progressive Coil Springs
About: Top Gun Customz offers a line of progressive-rate coil springs for Dodge (Ram) and Ford trucks. Available in the following lift heights of 2.5-, 3.5-, 6-, and 8-inch, these coils can be combined with quality shocks for a huge increase in ride comfort. The initial rate of these coils is softer than stock. As the spring compresses more, the rate increases. Being super soft on the street with a higher level of performance and control off-road, these springs offer the best of both worlds. The springs are shot-peened and pre set, and then powdercoated black for long lasting durability.
MSRP: From $279.95

Lift and Level
What: Truxxx ’04-’12 Nissan Titan Lift Kit
About: Truxxx’s 2-inch Nissan Titan lift now includes 1-inch rear lift blocks and utilizes ¼-inch steel construction that is laser-cut and welded to precision tolerances. The top and bottom end plates butt against the spacer tube to achieve the highest level of strength. The welds hold the spacer together while the end plates carry all the load of the suspension. The Truxxx lift kit does not change preload and maintains the stock smooth ride. No disassembly of strut or after-installation maintenance is required. Installation of this kit allows up to 33-inch tires on stock offset wheels. Truxxx products are 100-percent made in the U.S.A.

What: Trail Master ’04-’12 Ford F-150 Leveling Kit
About: The new Trail Master leveling kit for the ’04-’12 Ford F-150 adds 2-inches of ride height that levels out the front-to-rear stance of the truck and allows the use of bigger tires. While some leveling kits simply use a 2-inch coil spacer, Trail Master divides the lift by using a 1-inch urethane coil spring spacer and a 1-inch aluminum bolt-plate spacer that sits on top of the coil/shock assembly. This unique feature prevents excessive coil spring preload that can cause a harsh ride and inhibit the spring’s ability to properly oscillate. It also limits the overall length of the coil/shock assembly to keep ball joint angles within their proper operating range, eliminating the chance of contact with A-arms or other components when the suspension is under full compression or droop. This system comes with everything you need, including high-grade hardware and is manufactured in the U.S.A.
