SuspensionMaxx Control Arms Are Designed Specifically For Your Truck
SuspensionMAXX Leveling Kits are the perfect choice for lifting, leveling or dropping the front suspension on torsion bar equipped trucks and SUV’s. Our leveling kits increases vehicle function while providing your truck with a more aggressive look. Patented hex calibrated fixed forged torsion bar keys feature an internal gear adjustment mechanism that provides up to 7 incremental height adjustments. Our leveling kits can be calibrated to any amount of corrected height and degree torsion bars require with controlled preload and no degradation in handling or ride quality.
MAXXCam does not require longer shocks, so OE shocks and the comfortable factory ride can be retained. MAXXCam kits include all the hardware needed to complete the installation. Including differential relocation spacers, shock extensions, and upper control arm rebound stops. MAXXCam is a lower cost option to high-priced full lift kits.
MAXXCam installs quickly when using the SuspensionMAXX torsion bar unloader tool, requires no extensive modifications to the vehicle, and is completely reversible. Made in the USA and offered for all Dodge, Ford and GM torsion bar equipped trucks and SUV’s. There is no other product like it.
To increase suspension lift for bigger tires, more ground clearance, or to accommodate heavy front mounted accessories like snowplows, you’ll find MAXXCam Adjustable Torsion Key Leveling Kits are the best solution. MAXX Cam torsion bar keys are investment cast to exacting standards using 4140 heat-treated alloy steel for durability that exceeds that of even the toughest one-piece OEM torsion bar lever. Industrial strength powder coating is applied for added protection from the elements.
MAXXCam Adjustable Torsion Bar Leveling Kits are engineered to smoothly integrate with the stock suspension. There is no torsion bar preload and the original equipment shocks are kept in place. This not only helps to maintain the stock ride and handling characteristics of your truck or SUV, but reduces cost as well. MAXXCam is installed in approximately 1-2 hours and is and is supported by the unsurpassed SuspensionMAXX Techical Support Program. Completely covered by the MAXX Structural Lifetime Warranty.
Control Arms FAQ
Your factory length shocks can be reused with our stage 1 kit. The Bilsteins 5100 front shocks 24-253161 are a stock length and require a shock extension that is included with our kit. Bilstein does not offer a 2-3" longer shocks, so you must use the supplied shock extensions.
The FOX 2.0 part number 980-24-189 is an extended length and is designed to be used on 2-3" leveling kits. Another difference between the Bilstein and Fox is the manufacturer limited warranty. The Bilstein 5100 shocks are covered by Bilstein's limited lifetime warranty. The Fox has a 1-year limited warranty and can be rebuilt/serviced with new seals and oil.
The secondary Diff drop is optional and you can install our kit without it if you do not feel comfortable doing the modification. This is an additional diff spacer to lower the differential housing inside the cross-member. Giving you the maximum amount of diff drop for the best possible CV axle angle.
The factory Control Arms, with flat, single plane has several limitations. The factory geometry limits downward suspension travel at close to 2.5” of lift from stock. This is done to protect the shock absorbers and drive axles. Using our Stage 1 or stage 2 kit, we have already addressed these issues with extended the shock absorbers and lowering the front differential. The new MAXX travel A-arm is designed to have additional travel at your new lifted ride height. Working great for 2- 3” of lift over stock. With improved ball joint angle from the arced geometry, you will get thousands of miles of ball joint life from the addition of the MAXX travel upper control arms that we include in our stage 1 & 2 kits.
So many factors play a key role in choosing the right size tire. It really boils down to choosing the right wheel. If you choose the wrong wheel specs you will find very few tires may work with that combination. Stock wheels are normally 8" wide with a high positive +44 offset. If you are going to an aftermarket wheel we recommend a 9" wide wheel for the best fit and clearances with a positive +18 offset. With this combo or the factory wheel, you can clear up to a 35" x11.50" tire. Some customers have also had success with the 35" x 12.50" tire but I prefer the 11.50 option. Listed below are some great sizes.
295/65/20 = 35.1" X 11.6"
275/65/20= 34.1" X 10.8"
295/70/18=34.3" X 11.6
285/75/18= 34.8"X 11.2"
If you do choose to use a 10" or 12" wide wheel with Negative offset in combination with our stage 1 or 2 kits we strongly suggest you stick to a 33" diameter tire.
As far as labor to install this kit. 3.0 -5.0 hours for installation + alignment.
Our kits are 100% made in the USA and offer the highest quality components and craftsmanship. Each tubular A-arm is formed from 3/16" wall x 1-3/4" DOM tubing and tig welded for strength and durability. We use 3/4 ton Moog factory press in ball joints that are designed to clear the factory wheels with up to a 35" tire. We build our parts to the highest standard not down to a price. Yes, there are cheaper kits out there, but I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for and nothing is free.
