Getting over excited and over-springing the vehicle leads to a multitude of issues. The side-effects of too high a spring rate can include everything from poor ride and handling, too decreased off-road capability and premature shock wear or failure. Naturally, when we load up the 4×4 with the vast amount of quality accessories on the market, the scales start tipping towards the point that the factory suspension just cannot cope with both the load and the punishing terrain that intrepid adventurers come across. That’s where a specialized suspension becomes necessary. Tough Dog suspension normally offer a minimum of two or three [...]
