Pretty exciting news from Falcon Shocks. They are branching out into the truck market with a Sport Leveling kit for several popular models of trucks.
Falcon shocks is pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated Sport Leveling System for select Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Chevy/GMC 1500, and Toyota Tacoma vehicles.
The Falcon Sport Leveling Shock Absorber System is engineered to deliver increased stability and control as well as improved ride quality and comfort both on and off-road. These compact and affordable shocks are ideal for daily driven vehicles.
Falcon Shocks design philosophy can be summed up as High Value Performance. We dont just design shocks; rather we engineer complete shock absorber systems that improve the overall performance of your truck while retaining many of the factory suspensions pieces. This ensures that you only pay for what is required and nothing more. Unlike other companies that just build replacement shocks with revised valving, Falcon Shocks engineers complete shock absorber systems tuned to work with the factory linear rate coil springs and leaf springs. Front shocks feature multiple snap ring grooves to level out the front end including settings for heavier front bumpers.
By adding an internal negative rate spring around the shaft, we offset the preload of the factory spring, which effectively retunes the factory spring rate near full extension during aggressive off-road driving. This eliminates top out clunk, softens tire landing, and reduces body roll and stress on the shock.
The included replacement closed-cell microcellular bump stop effectively retunes the spring rate when the shock approaches full compression during aggressive off-road driving. This reduces bottoming out of the suspension and body roll at the limit. Although the factory spring rate is unchanged, our revised shock tuning increases on-road performance, control, and ride comfort in normal driving.
All of our pickup truck-specific shock absorber systems are tuned for on-road comfort with predictive handling, control, and stability as well as controlled steering during off-road driving through the canyons, on washboard roads, and through whoops. Initial tuning begins by driving each truck on and off road for two days to set a baseline. Next, the initial tuning is evaluated by daily driving each vehicle for four weeks to look for holes in performance. After taking careful notes, we adjust the tuning and test for two more days. We re-evaluate the revised tune for four more weeks. Each shock absorber system requires 2-6 months of testing and tuning before meeting our performance targets.
In addition to the internal spring rate tuning, the closed-cell microcellular bump stop is tuned via its durometer, height, shape, and materials. Our engineers also carefully tune the shock absorber system to remove any noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) inherent in the vehicles frame for a smooth and comfortable drive.
