No, the side steps won't make the suspension any smoother or the motor any more powerful, but a precipitous climb into a tall truck can get old fast. These sacrifice some ground clearance, but the added ease of entry is a worthwhile tradeoff in this case.No, the side steps won't make the suspension any smoother or the motor any more powerful, Installing the RRD front end is fairly easy, since the front of the radius arms bolt right into place on the '05-and-newer 4x4 axlehousing. As with the rear, the short link provides greater suspension flex and allows pinion angle adjustment.Installing the RRD front end is fairly easy, since the front of the radius arms bolt right Ford's radius arm pivot brackets are as strong as the Super Duty name suggests and tuck up tight to the frame for optimum ground clearance. RRD Racing left them in place and anchored its triangulated, fully boxed radius arms in the factory location.Ford's radius arm pivot brackets are as strong as the Super Duty name suggests and tuck up Zooming in close, the beefy nature of the trailing arms and locating bracketry is easy to see. The short link in the trailing arm enables more suspension flex from the system and allows the pinion angle to be dialed perfectly: no driveshaft vibration and longer U-joint life. The RRD links completely eliminate axlewrap. Because this system requires skilled welding for proper installation, it's best left to an experienced expert or a pro.Zooming in close, the beefy nature of the trailing arms and locating bracketry is easy to To laterally locate the rear suspension, a Panhard bar spans the distance between the passenger-side framerail and the driver-side trailing arm bracket. Quite often, suspension links and Panhard bars require a bend or two in order to properly clear surrounding components. Careful measuring allowed Rock Krawler to use an unbent 'bar for optimum strength.To laterally locate the rear suspension, a Panhard bar spans the distance between the pass Yes, Ford's 6.0 Power Stroke had a few teething problems when first introduced in '03. Fast-forward three short years, and the '06 model year is everything that the first run should have been: powerful, and most importantly, reliable. A Superchips power programmer takes advantage of the big-time performance potential that lies within the new-generation turbodiesel engines. The only other mod is a free-flowing aFe intake. Even with the minimal modifications, the Power Stroke can easily smoke the 38-inch Dick Cepeks, as a certain editor's right foot can attest.Yes, Ford's 6.0 Power Stroke had a few teething problems when first introduced in '03. Fa Where's the spring pack? It's gone! Several companies to date have offered coilover conversion kits for the front ends of leaf-sprung Super Dutys produced from '99 to '04. The '05-and-newer SDs sport coils up front, but Rock Krawler is the only player so far to convert the rear of a Super Duty to links and coilovers. The Rock Krawler RRD trailing arms are built from 1/4-inch laser-cut steel and are covered by Rock Krawler's "abuse proof" warranty. Note that the trailing arm's outline amounts to one monster-sized triangle - the strongest shape possible. The RRD Racing Desert Racing System lifts the Super Duty 8 inches and allows owners to run 38-inch tires without fender trimming, and to run 40-inchers with inner fender trimming.Where's the spring pack?
