Fabtech Testing New 4-link Jeep Suspension

jk-testing-03

Product testing is a huge part of having a successful product line. Without testing the components that are designed, improvements are more difficult to sort out, innovations can fall short of their target and new ideas aren’t always realized. Fabtech takes their product testing very seriously.

jk-testing-06Fabtech is on the verge of a massive expansion in the Jeep aftermarket. New products and innovations are coming soon and they are going to be epic. Real world testing is done to make sure these products live up to the Fabtech reputation and the expectation of not only the customers but to the expectation of Fabtech’s talented Research and Development team. What all that means is, Fabtech spent another day out in the desert with a couple of their Jeeps, beating the rocks and twisting up their newest suspension designs.

Being based in southern California is a huge benefit when it comes to product testing. Having Johnson Valley, The Hammers and Cougar Buttes within a short distance gives the Fabtech team a world-class offroad playground that offers a wide variety of terrain. Bull Frog Trail was the initial target for this outing and both Jeeps performed as they should, flawlessly. While out there, the team also hit up Split Finger Trail and others.

The suspension systems on these two Jeep Wrangler Unlimiteds are still in development. Under both of these Jeeps is a new front 4-link (plus track bar) suspension that Fabtech is working on. A properly designed 4-link system results in reduced caster change from full bump contact to full droop. Less caster change equals better control, ride and predictability for the driver. From the driver’s seat, this suspension system gives a tighter feel through all of the range of motion, both on road and off. In addition to the improved movement, the 4-link provides more connections to the differential, adding strength in numbers to the already 5/16-inch thick link arms and 1/4-inch thick skid plates and crossmembers. Due to the nature of product testing and development, more information on the 4-link system will be available at a later date.

jk-testing-02Fabtech’s product development and testing is extensive. Countless hours are spent on the products before they are released to the world. There are many steps between concept and part sales; testing is an integral part of the process. Each step fine tunes the system and components into a top performer for all conditions.

Fabtech’s 5-inch Crawler System for JK Wrangler Unlimiteds

5 Inch Crawler Long Arm Suspension

Fabtech has been building performance suspension systems for Jeeps for many years. Designed and built right here in California, the Fabtech kits will transform your Jeep from a relatively useful stock vehicle to a trail dominating machine that will take you anywhere you want to go.

fabtech-jk-crawler-03The ever popular JK Wrangler Unlimited is easily one of the most popular Jeeps there has ever been. Fabtech’s 5” Crawler System will take your JKU to the next level and keep you there with extremely well thought out and tested design and quality. A proven radius arm design allows the front differential to twist and flex over any obstacle while keeping exceptional alignment geometry for perfect road manners. The 5-link rear suspension design keeps the rear differential in contact with the ground in even the most flexed out positions. Both the front and rear suspension designs are perfectly suited for low speed crawling, high speed trail running and cruising the streets and highways.

The crossmembers are built from 1/4” thick steel plate and the control arms are built from 5/16” thick wall tubing so you don’t have to worry about bending or breaking any of the components. Each of the kits are designed for minimal cutting and welding during installation for a cleaner and easier experience all while keeping race inspired components for top performance.

Fabtech suspension systems have multiple levels for shocks. The base twin-tube hydraulic Performance Shock is a good entry level unit. Stealth Monotube nitrogen charged shocks give a good balance between value and performance. The Fabtech built Dirt Logic race inspired shocks are designed for extreme duty performance and are fully rebuildable. Step up to Dirt Logic Coilovers to take your JK to the top of the food chain.
