Truxxx is Now 25% Off and Ships Free. Truxxx Manufacturing LLC specializes in the manufacturing of lift and level kits for the pickup truck and SUV market. Leveling and Lift Kits correct the nose down attitude of today's popular trucks and give the appearance of having lifted the truck without the expense or hassle of a traditional lift kit. Why not get your truck to look right without spending all of your hard earned money? Truxxx will give you the lift without having to spend ridicules amount of money.
Leveling Kits and Lift Kits are available for Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hummer, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Toyota vehicles.
All products are made to an exacting standard, with modern 3-D computer aided design. The kits are then manufactured with precision computer controlled laser and plasma cutting equipment and welded to a precise tolerance. Truxxx uses the original computer drawings from the manufacturer as their base, and then create their kits to fit perfectly with the OEM design. You will always get the perfect fir with a Truxxx Kit, whether it is a leveling kit or a lift kit.
Finally, each kit is tested in several vehicles for fit and ease of installation. Truxxx works over time to make sure that the customers don't have the hassle of tedious installation or the possibility of something going horribly wrong. Truxxx's main goal is to make the installation process smooth.The instructions are easy to read and come with color photos for better understanding where parts and pieces connect, required tools and alignment specification. Truxxx knows how importannt it is to have everything laid out in an organized manner.
The method used by Truxxx is to relocate the mounting point of the spring that holds the truck up, without changing the location of the stock suspension arms. Truxxx uses this method because it makes the lift installation a simple and easier task. This method also doesn't compromise the smooth stock ride. With a coil-over shock style suspension, like in the 2004 Ford F150 Truxxx extends the strut length, while retaining the stock spring pressure. This keeps the smooth ride of a stock truck, with no increase in harshness. For a torsion bar style suspension like the 2004 Chevrolet K2500HD, Truxxx supply a re-indexed torsion key and shock relocator brackets which changes the location that the torsion spring mounts at without changing the spring tension. Truxxx kits also come with complete, full color instructions and alignment specifications customized for your model of truck. We make the process of installing the lift kit or leveling kit a simple task.
The most common method for lifts 4" and greater is to relocate the suspension brackets with a drop-down system, which Pro-Comp pioneered for the 1988 GM IFS and others have copied and improved upon. The basic method involves removing all the suspension from the front of the vehicle and mounting it to a bracket that hangs down 4", 6" -- all the way to 15" from stock. The steering knuckle is replaced with a new cast unit, the drive shafts are made longer and often the track width is increased. The upper control arms are generally not altered, although Pro-Comp does have some kits that do relocate the upper arms down. This method, or a close variation of it, is used by Fabtech, RCD, Pro-Comp, Skyjacker, Superlift and many more.
Another method is to increase the spring pressure that is holding the truck up. This is done by using stiffer springs, adding leaf springs where applicable or airbags - all methods that result in a stiffer ride than stock. Many people find that this changes their smooth stock ride too much, making it intolerably stiff. This is the method that Daystar, Revtech and Tuff Country use for their 2004 Ford F-150 kits.
A fourth method is to install a new spindle that has the axle stub relocated to lift the truck. Fabtech is a major supplier of these spindles for two-wheel drive trucks to make them look like a pre-runner. The advantage is the stock ride is retained, although the installation is not as easy as the Truxxx kit, and the kit is more expensive to purchase.
