Good: Defender Spring Kit - $599.99
Kickstart your off-road upgrade with Shock Therapy’s Defender Spring Kit. Engineered with precision and crafted in the USA, these springs are manufactured from top-tier CrSi material. While slightly pricier than other springs, these springs ensure consistent spring rates and unparalleled durability, ensuring that they won’t fade even in the most extreme conditions.
The benefits of the Defender Spring Kit are numerous, including a smoother and more plush ride over small bumps, thanks to the optimized spring rates. Additionally, with the superior bottom-out resistance offered by the kit, you can say goodbye to bottoming out during intense hits. The threaded preload adapter and preload collar grant you maximum adjustability, allowing you to fine-tune your ride height and quality. Whether you want to reduce nose diving, front-end dive under corner braking, or body roll, this kit has you covered. Plus, its adjustable nature caters to various weight loads and preferences, giving you the ultimate control over your ride.
