Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Number 126 was established in order to prevent injury and accident by placing new regulations on the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) to prevent single vehicle rollovers. To make sure that vehicle and aftermarket manufacturers are compliant with the new standards, Link Engineering Co. opens up their proving grounds testing facility outside of Phoenix, Arizona to put products like the newest ReadyLIFT® Suspension kits through the gauntlet.
The rigorous testing involves the installation of a custom testing robot and computer system onto the vehicle. After this the vehicle being tested is run through the test track performing a series of ever growing steering adjustments and corrections. The robot can calculate all of the forces and check whether the vehicle is performing within the standards. ReadyLIFT performed this test with 3 separate vehicles.
- GMC Sierra 1500 equipped with the new ReadyLIFT Off-Road MLS 6-Inch Lift Kit
- Ford F150 equipped with the ReadyLIFT Off-Road MLS 7-Inch Lift Kit and 37″ Tires
- Ford F250 Super Duty with ReadyLIFT Off-Road 5-Inch Lift Kit
ReadyLIFT Suspension is proud to announce that all 3 of these tested suspension lift systems passed the FMVSS 126 ESC testing. ReadyLIFT Vice President of R&D Robert Taylor had this to say, “At ReadyLIFT, safety is paramount in the design and production of all our products. We are proud to offer kits that not only perform, but provide the highest level of safety our customers deserve,” reported Mr. Taylor. “Our engineering team worked with testing lab Link Engineering to perform and pass these specialized tests… with ReadyLIFT lift kits up to 7” in lift and 37” tires.” It just goes to show that you can upgrade your vehicle safely with manufacturers like ReadyLIFT Suspension ensuring quality products are hitting the shelves.
