The ultimate upgrade for your Gen 1 Ford Raptor is our all new long travel 5- link rear suspension kit. This 5 link suspension kit replaces the leaf spring setup with Gen 3 configuration rear suspension. The upper and lower trailing arms and panhard bar with race quality fabricated parts and locates the panhard bar for optimum wheel travel. Install the cantilever setup for the shocks to get up to ~19 inches of working wheel travel and uses a standard off the shelf 2.5" coil over shock instead of the factory spring. All of the moving parts are built using 4130 chromoly material and using high quality uniball and rod ends to provide the ultimate in strength and stability. Getting rid of the rubber bushings that mount the stock parts with the more rigid race quality bearings makes the truck feel more predictable and limits flex which turns into wheel hop.
This kit keeps the stock fuel tank and all parts are under the bed to keep your bed space open. This kit even keeps the stock spare tire location in place. The best overall kit provides great functional wheel travel and lets you keep your truck looking pretty stock.
Shock configuration can be done a couple of ways. The main shock uses a 2.5" coil over shock with adjustable springs so you can control the rear ride height to set it up how ever you want. For the second rear shock you can use a Gen 2 stock Fox Raptor shock . Or you can use the upgraded Gen 2 - Fox 3.0" stock replacement shock upgrade, or you can go with a 12" travel 3.0" external bypass shock for the ultimate control and adjustability. This configuration lets you decide how to set it up and ease into changes and upgrades on your schedule. For Gen 1 installations you will need to purchase a Gen 2 rear shock for the base package with this kit for the base installation or purchase the upgraded 3.0" external bypass shock setup.
We also recommend installing our bump stop kit to the rear to help handle the big bumps and control the last few inches of the wheel travel. Bump stop kit for the gen 1 will work with our long travel kit.
