Ford has redesigned the F-150 from the ground up for the 2015 model year, but even before these trucks hit dealer lots Pro Comp had already engineered a complete 6-inch suspension system that fits 35-inch tires. The new F-150 uses aluminum in order to shed weight and increase fuel economy, and Pro Comp optimized the design of their suspension to complement the Ford’s features with new high clearance, one piece crossmembers tailored to maximize strength while reducing weight. Ductile iron knuckles span the increased distance between the control arms with geometry designed for OEM stability control function and steering feel.
BEREA, Ohio – To improve the performance and fuel economy of the redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, CORSA(r) Performance has engineered a new cat-back exhaust system for the 5.3L V8 engine of these full size SUVs. A leader in aftermarket performance exhaust technology, CORSA systems are designed to create a quicker, more efficient path for exhaust gases to escape, allowing the engine to “breathe” better, so spent fuel and air exit the combustion chambers faster. CORSA systems are crafted using a mandrel bend process for a smoother pipe surface and a constant diameter through the bend for less resistance. CORSA test results show that the new Tahoe/Yukon system provides a 53.71 percent improvement in airflow and weighs seven pounds less than the stock system.
With the introduction of 35″ tires into Class 10, slightly lower ratios are necessary to get your gearing right. In addition to our 4.57, Weddle Racing is adding 4.86 and 5.14 to its range of Weddle Racing Heavy Duty LQ Klingelnberg Palloid Ring & Pinion sets.
