SVC Lower Control Arm with Secondary Bypass Mount was designed to be
the ultimate in 100% bolt on Raptor Suspension. We are the first
company to offer a kit that houses a 3.0 Coil-over and additional
secondary Fox Racing Shox 3.5" twin tube bypass shock with mount. The
amount of damping control in the front end of this kit is ridiculous.
You simply float over holes that normally rattle your teeth out. Large
G out's become fun vs. painful bottom outs, and confidence it inspires
is on a whole other level. One of the most common themes we have heard
from our customers test trucks is "it's time for a cage".
goal for us was simple. To give Raptor owners a kit that is daily
drivable, ridiculously fast in the dirt and in perfect balance with our
Bypass Rack System for the rear of the truck. Others have asked, why
not a long travel system instead? The reality is, unless you plan on 4
linking the back half of your truck and running a full cage, there
really is no point. When the dual shock setup with the Fox Racing Shox
3.5" bypass and 3.0" coil-over is coupled with the SVC Bypass Rack
system, it's faster and more capable of hitting huge holes than any
Raptor should ever go without caging the whole truck anyway.
arm itself is a sleek race-truck inspired design that's rolled at the
bottom for better appearance and puncture protection without having a
weld on the bottom. Many hours went into designing the proper bearing
cup angle and slope to work with the factory upright. The geometry of
the setup is perfect. We added an angled up slope to the front of the
arm so the bearing cup seats perfectly in the arm to insure a proper
weld without any gaps needing to be filled, thus keeping it in line as
Ford intended. The Bearing cups and chassis bushing sleeves are wrapped
for added strength as well as fitted with zerk fitting for routine
lubrication of the poly bushings. The arm also has additional
internal gusseting for added strength and longevity.
key component of our arm vs. others on the market who offer a dual
shock setup is we have a near identical motion ratio for the 3.5 bypass
shock and replacement 3.0" coil-over. It was crucial that we didn't
just add a larger second shock without it being geometrically correct.
When dual shocks are out of line with each other, the motion ratio's and
leverage ratios can change. By keeping our secondary shock in line with
the factory coil-over mounting location, we keep the motion ratios of
the shocks near identical. This equates to a better working suspension
that makes tuning the shock far easier and much more effective.
first with this setup is a 100% bolt on CNC laser cut bypass mounting
system. The entire setup can be installed in a home garage with no
welding required unless the end user chooses to do so. It attaches to
the frame with four grade 8 1/2 in bolts, and three 7/16th grade
8 bolts. No trimming of the UCA factory mounting location is required.
It also doesn't hurt that the secondary bypass shock adds some added
bling to the wheel well for those who care about that sort of thing.
the business end of things Fox was kind enough to build us our very own
3.5" twin tube external bypass shock with a robust 3.5 external
reservoir for added cooling. This shock is a full blown race shock
designed to have massive bottoming resistance. The internals of the
shock, and the fluid used is the same exact components as found on the
Factory Fox racing vehicles. When you opt for the Fox 3.5" Fox Bypass
Shock, you are adding well over 100% damping control vs. a single 3.0
We can't think of another system out there
that goes on as easy, offers as much damping control and looks as good
as what we have come up with.
