Now that you can drive faster, quicker and haul more weight, a ride improvement kit restores original (ORD) ride height and wheel travel at weights up to 20,000 pounds. The kit gives you a new lower control arm that smartly provides a recessed spring mount and a 3 and ½ inch longer spring for each wheel. The arm is made with ½ inch steel plate. The spring provides more steel to support the higher HMMWV weights along with wider coil gaps. The wider gap reduces coil bind and lets through more air to cool those shocks (for longer life) that you will put to the test with those added horses under the hood. With different bolt-on lower spring mounts you can reuse existing shocks, install our adjustable shock kit or install the shock of your choice. The new control arms mount right to the HMMWV.
To provide smoother, safer maneuverability another option for you is to install a solid billet idler arm kit with new larger front and rear sway bars. These sway bars are mil-spec hot bent, quenched and tempered. The added rear bar includes bolt-on brackets for simple fit. A 1.75 inch rear sway bar was selected by the military after testing at the higher vehicle gross vehicle weight.
