Performance-Accessories-Website-2014-1-24-14Chino Valley, AZ -Performance Accessories launched its newly redesigned website that allows visitors to easily find the correct leveling kit, body-lift, or Premium Lift System for their specific vehicle application. The new website navigation tools and menu allow vehicle owners to search for Performance Accessories products by category, or by entering their specific vehicle make, model, year, and application.

“Our newly redesigned website is a great resource for truck, Jeep, or SUV owners who want to lift their vehicles anywhere from 3/8 of an inch to 5.5 inches, but without the need to heavily modify the suspension or drivetrain,” says Steve Rezek, President at Performance Accessories. “More people are realizing Performance Accessories leveling kits, body-lifts, and Premium Lift Systems won’t affect the vehicle’s electronic stability controls or void the factory warranty. So we needed to upgrade our website to handle the additional traffic and make it even easier to find the right product for their application.”
