Have you ever been in your truck and felt like you were driving a boat?
The StableLoad Challenge gave those experienced with towing and hauling the opportunity to drive a Ford F-150 with a 2,800-pound load in the back, both with and without Torklift International’s StableLoad suspension stabilizer. As a suspension upgrade for hauling truck campers or towing trailers, it was our goal to get candid responses from those participating in the test-drive at a recent rally.
If you haven’t already watched Torklift International’s StableLoad Challenge, be sure to view the full video and see how the experience made a huge impression on rally-goers who took the challenge.
As one of our challengers, Diane Leff jumped at the chance to test-drive the StableLoad suspension upgrade. Buckled up and ready to roll, let’s take a look at Diane’s experience.
Ford F150 with no suspension upgrade:
“It’s like a boat. I feel the side-to-side motion and it’s not as responsive,” says Diane. “I wouldn’t want to drive this under these conditions for very long and not feel safe and in control.”
Ford F150 with StableLoad suspension stabilizer engaged:
"…I feel the difference already. It’s a much smoother ride. This is amazing!”
When driving without the suspension enhancement, Diane Leff immediately points out the rocking feeling as if the vehicle was “like a boat”. With side-to-side sway, body roll and porpoising effects, she found that the truck was harder to control. When it came time to drive the truck with StableLoads engaged, she felt the difference immediately.
Preventing body roll is important in order to tow or haul safely. To regain control of your truck, learn more about how the StableLoads work for your suspension.
