It's hard to get stuck when you're streaking across the desert at upwards of 100 mph, but should the Suburban wallow in a bottomless sandpit, the front suspension has been equipped with 935 CV-joints from McKenzie's Performance Products and custom half-shafts built by ORU. Currently the four-wheel drive is a part-time traction aid because the 20 inches of front suspension travel is capable of exceeding the operating range of the current system. Larger CV-joints with slip shafts are currently being tested to create a true all-wheel-drive package. In the steering department the Dana 60 steering knuckles have proven to be indestructible since ORU added chrome-moly plate reinforcements and tie rods made from chrome moly and 7/8-inch Aurora rod ends.
