New Ford Ranger and F-150 Performance Off-Road Suspension
Ford truck customers looking for even better off-road capability from their F-150 or Ranger can now buy after-purchase leveling kits from Ford Performance Parts. This is the first time Ford has offered a package like this, which includes custom-tuned FOX shocks, a 2-inch front lift, new front coilovers and vehicle-specific upper front mounts and locking spring pre-load rings.
“Ford Performance Parts developed these kits to make the off-road experience even better for our Ranger and F-150 customers,” said Eric Cin, global director of Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories. “Truck customers are asking for options for increased capability and customization, and the new leveling suspension kits for Ranger and F-150 deliver on that need.”
Once installed, these suspension kits improve ground clearance, approach and breakover angles and give the truck a more level and lifted appearance. The kits were developed and tested by Ford Performance engineers in Borrego, California and in Arizona, which included high-speed off-road driving and low-speed rock-crawling.
These new off-road suspension kits can be installed on any four-wheel-drive 2019 Ranger or 2015-2019 F-150 and come with a Ford Performance Parts limited warranty. They are available to order through Tommie Vaughn Ford and can be installed by our expert service technicians. Contact us today for details and pricing.
