Road Suspensions Guide

Hefty Fabworks Road Suspensions Guide

When it comes to off-road suspensions there are many options, variations and designs available on the market and the choice of what suspension or lift kit to choose for your vehicle can be an overwhelming process. Don’t worry, at Hefty Fabworks we are here to help! 

Selecting The Right Lift Kit

Once search on the internet for “lift kit” will give you a horrendous amount of options, designs, brands and even colors and for many people, color actually is a huge determining factor in the choice of the suspension they choose for their vehicle, but there is a lot more to choosing the right suspension for your truck, Jeep or SUV than what color it is. 

From the simplest of spacer lifts, Full bolt on suspension systems or a full custom built suspension we are here to take the guesswork out of your search process. The first step when choosing the right suspension system for your vehicle is to determine what you plan to do with the truck, your budget and then we can work with you to plan out the best suspension for your build. We stock and sell some of the top brands and offer installation and service on all the products we carry. A proper alignment after a new suspension is installed is essential and we take care of that too using the best laser alignment machines on the market and set your vehicle's alignment to the correct specification for the lift you decide on. Proper caster, camber and toe angles reduce steering vibration and keep the vehicle tracking straight while maintaining even tire wear. Let's face it, tires are expensive and no one likes wasting money on a new set of tires because of a poor alignment.  

Reasons to Install a Lifted Suspension

The biggest reason to install a new lifted suspension is to fit bigger tires on your vehicle, but there is more than just lifting a vehicle to make sure you are getting the right tire size. We can save you time, money and aggravation by pairing your new suspension with the right wheel and tire combination, correct backspacing or offset on your wheels and any body trimming or modifications to fit those new tires that take your build to the next level! Hefty Fabworks carries most major offroad tires brands from All Terrains, Mud terrain and even Competition Sticky’s. Mounting and balancing is done in house with our top of the line Hunter mounting and Balancing equipment.
