The popularity of off roading and rock crawling is at an all-time high, and many people are upgrading their suspension systems for increased off-road prowess as well as for asthetic and show purposes. 4x4 and off-road suspension systems can be complicated, so it's important to understand them well before making modifications and upgrades.
Author Trenton McGee, 4x4 suspension expert and host of Outdoor Channel's Off-Road Adventures, explains 4x4 suspension systems in an easy-to-understand manner. He gets specific on the types of suspensions available from all the major manufacturers including jeep, Toyota, Ford, Chevy, and Dodge. He goes into a great level of detail on every different model, including early and modern model systems.
The book covers front and rear solid axle, twin-traction beam, and independent suspension systems, as well as coil springs, leaf springs, shocks, and more. Covering fourwheel-drive suspension systems and how they can be modified for better off-road performance, this book has it all. If it's not covered in here, it doesn't exist. A glossary of suspension terms and a comprehensive source guide are also included.
