StableLoadManufacturers spent millions of dollars and over a hundred years investing in truck suspensions to ensure TWO major things: that it rides like a car and is comfortable, as well as its ability to safely tow or haul incredibly heavy loads. When a truck is loaded, the spring pack engages when you’re towing or hauling. On a truck without StableLoads, once you begin to tow or haul with your truck, pressure is applied too late on the factory overload stabilizer springs of your vehicle’s suspension. The problem is that there isn’t enough stability to support the load, resulting in poor handling characteristics. Here are just a few towing issues you may have experienced with no StableLoad installed:

• Side-to-Side Sway
• Body Roll
• Porpoising
• Truck Sag/Squat

stableloads2The effects of hauling with and without the StableLoad are clear to see!

How are your towing issues handled with the StableLoad? By "pre-activating" the stabilizing effect designed for rear springs by keeping them actively under load the way your vehicle factory engineers designed them to operate. Unlike any other suspension upgrade, the StableLoad suspension stabilizers work with the factory suspension on your vehicle, allowing them to work the way they were designed to, improving safety, handling, sag, body roll, and porpoising while towing and hauling.

 

Upper and Lower Applications Available

Upper SL IUThe Torklift StableLoad comes in two application styles. The lower quick-disconnect StableLoad and the upper StableLoad. Designed to replace smaller, inefficient factory overload bump stop pads, the upper StableLoads engage the upper overload stabilizer spring rather than the lower overload stabilizer spring which is what the lower StableLoad is designed for. With both upper and lower StableLoads combined, they resolve all the issues that you would encounter when needing a suspension upgrade. The bonus with the lower StableLoad? It can be engaged and disengaged in seconds to return to your factory ride.

Focusing on innovation and boldly going where no one has gone before, Torklift has a mission of providing the highest product quality using high-tech machinery including lasers, WaterJets and robotics along with superior customer service. This is especially true when it comes to customer satisfaction and ensuring that you, the customer, is satisfied with our product. Avoid sway, sag and poor handling by installing Torklift upper and lower StableLoads on your vehicle. Visit Torklift’s Where to Buy page to find a local dealer near you. Or contact our tech support directly at 800-246-8132 for assistance with your orders or more information on our 30-day money back guarantee! With the StableLoad suspension enhancements installed, you will not only BE safer on the road, you will FEEL safer.

The StableLoad suspension enhancement is now available in stainless steel!

IMG 0714 2At Torklift, we are dedicated to producing the latest and greatest and our StableLoad suspension upgrade is no different! With our original design, our customers are able to feel the dramatic improvement at an affordable cost that the StableLoad provides to their truck suspension.

The StableLoad suspension enhancement manufactured out of stainless steel dramatically improves vehicle handling characteristics by "pre-activating" the stabilizing effect already designed into your rear springs by keeping them actively under load the way your vehicle factory engineers designed them to operate. It’s also the only suspension enhancement that you can turn on and off so you can return to your factory ride when not towing or hauling.

Now available in stainless steel, you have both the option of our original steel powder coated lower StableLoad as well as the NEW stainless steel version. The stainless steel StableLoad not only is non-corrosive but also enhances the look of your truck to make it stand out as the envy of other truck owners. What does that mean for you? This means that the stainless steel will keep the StableLoads looking new without a layer of protective powder coat and working great to meet and exceed the toughest demands from avid sportsmen and adventurers. These suspension upgrades are always ready to push the envelope with you while keeping your family, truck and whatever you’re hauling safe.

SL SS Cut3 1You may be asking why make the StableLoad also available in stainless steel along with our original steel design? Stainless steel is known to be an incredibly strong metal – so why not create a version of the StableLoad out of this durable metal as well? Similar to our rugged truck camper Talon Tie Downs that are made from both military grade aluminum and stainless steel, our new stainless steel StableLoads are built for tough conditions. Our engineers developed these ultra high performance suspension enhancements to handle the toughest climates and terrain. Whether you head out onto the coastal beaches or up to the mountain heights into the snow and ice where harsh chemical treatments are prevalent, nothing outperforms stainless steel StableLoads.

Problems stopping when towing heavy loads? Here’s your solution

Byers F350 Adventurer89RBS TorkliftSystem 6.27.17When it comes to towing behind your truck, many people think that as long as you attach a ballmount to a hitch on a vehicle, you’re set to haul anything and everything. While we’ve covered the basics before in another blog, How to Tow a Trailer, there’s one major aspect we didn’t mention when it comes to towing safely behind your truck and what towing does to your truck and trailer suspension.

In particular, how to deal with problems stopping when towing heavy loads, especially when your truck is squatting too much. We covered that your hitch needs to be the correct class and that your vehicle is capable of carrying the load, and while that’s all true - is your truck suspension also up to the task? If not, you could have major issues with stopping as well as handling complications such as swaying, porpoising and sag.

b2ap3 thumbnail trucksagIf your trailer has too much weight, it can make your truck sag while towing!

TLI SL Blog 4

There are a wide variety of suspension improvements, but which one is the best one? Here’s a short list of some of the most common suspension kits available:

Shocks: A mechanical or hydraulic device designed to absorb and dampen shock impulses. Some types even allow you to tune the ride by control of the valve, but can be quite pricey and maintenance can be expensive.
Airbags: One of the most common suspension upgrades, but that’s not necessarily a good thing. It’s expensive not only to purchase airbags, but also have them installed and repaired as well. They are very capable of lifting a vehicle for towing to prevent sag, but are notorious for leaks. They also cause a destabilizing effect by lifting a majority of weight off the vehicle suspension.
Bump stops: A simple design, bump stops are meant to be installed to prevent metal on metal contact. As the suspension undergoes high-compression such as turning a corner or hitting a speed bump, they soak up the shock. They can force your shocks to work harder because they don’t engage as quickly with the bump stops installed.TLI SL Blog 6
Sway bars: Another common suspension upgrade, sway bars help reduce the body roll that comes with towing heavy loads and can improve cornering. But, over time the sway bars can cause cracked mounts and also stiffen your ride which can make long trips uncomfortable.


With lack of control when stopping, you’ll find yourself gripping your steering wheel. The key to getting the stability you need is figuring out the best way on how to improve suspension and taking the steps to making your towing experience safer. There are many ways to upgrade suspension, but are the ones listed above the best suspension upgrades? We would argue no, but what else can you do to improve your ride while you’re towing without having to spend thousands on truck and trailer supplies?

Torklift introduces the StableLoad suspension enhancement. A StableLoad improves the vehicle’s handling by pre-activating the stabilizing effect that was designed for rear suspension. This keeps the vehicle manufacturer’s factory installed overload leaf springs under load the way the manufacturer’s designed them to function. The quad contact design compliments the specific vehicle engineered suspension that manufacturers invested millions of dollars developing. Since the lower StableLoad turns on and off, you get a smooth and comfortable ride even with the product activated for towing.

StableLoad Science

TLI SL Blog 7With the StableLoads, see and feel a dramatic reduction in side-to-side sway, body roll while you’re towing and when your trailer brakes. The StableLoads keep your vehicle level reducing stopping distance, suspension wear and tire wear. Another unique feature of the StableLoad is that it can be turned on and off depending on whether you’re towing or not. This means that you can return to your normal factory suspension when you’re not towing behind your truck.


Torklift also provides a 30-day money back guarantee on these suspension wedges no matter where they were purchased. If you are not satisfied with your StableLoads in the first 30 days, with a receipt a refund up to minimum resale price will be given. This is in place to ensure you are happy with your purchase.

If you have any questions about the StableLoad towing suspension product, visit our StableLoad page here or feel free to contact us at 800-246-8132. You can also email our tech support directly at support@torklift.com. If you are tired of problems stopping when towing, you can also purchase the StableLoads from a Torklift Certified Dealer near you by visiting our Where to Buy page.

Go on an epic roadtrip with your Torklift StableLoads

Anutami-CamperGo on an epic roadtrip,
just like Anutami
There are many of us that have fond memories of going on long camping trips with our family and friends. Just getting to enjoy the open road, have s’mores by a campfire and fight over what music to play are all just a little part of getting to go on a roadtrip. But, forum user Anutami from Rv.net took his roadtrip to the next level. He went “old school” and took his family on an epic 6-week business trip and tour of Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. But before he did so, he made sure that his truck and camper were prepped for the long journey.

 

Prepping for the trip
When it comes to a long excursion, you have to make sure that every aspect of your truck and camper are 100 percent ready to go. For Anutami, it was also a matter of figuring out how to reduce the excessive sway due to extra weight and improving his Ford suspension. He decided to install our Torklift StableLoads, both upper and lower applications. Although our most popular StableLoads are no-drill, we also offer kits that have drill bits if your leaf springs don’t come with a hole already in them such as on Anutami’s 2001 Ford F350.

Before-Lower-StableLoadPrior to lower StableLoads installation Four-Included-Drill-Bits Four drill bits are included

“Thank you Torklift for providing the drill bits. I used all four!”
                                                    -Anutami, Rv.net

Torklift-Upper-StableLoadBoth upper and lower StableLoads

With the StableLoad Suspension Stabilizer Anutami felt an instant change to the rig when he started driving with both upper and lower StableLoads activated. With significantly reduced side-to-side sway, improved safety and handling and the elimination of sag, Anutami didn’t have to worry about his truck camper and instead could have fun with his family on their epic roadtrip. He could also enjoy the trip without white knuckle driving and the feeling of anxiety due to a lack of steering control. Once their trip concluded, he can quickly return to the truck's original ride in just seconds. Since the lower StableLoads adjust to its "off" position, he can enjoy a smooth factory ride when he’s not towing or hauling, but also has the ability to handle heavy payload for future road trips by switching the lower StableLoads back on.

Some other great features of the upper and lower StableLoad include:

•  Dramatically improves safety, handling and reduces sway, body roll and porpoising
•  The lower StableLoads have the ability to turn on and off in seconds
•  Universal fit for all vehicles with factory installed upper and lower overloads
•  Works with small truck campers, small trailers, large truck campers, 5th wheels, SUVs and more
•  For the lower StableLoads, a quad contact design complements the vehicle manufacturer's four point suspension
•  Legendary Lifetime Warranty
•  Proudly made in the USA

 We’re glad that the StableLoads were able to make Anutami’s trip that much better and that they will continue to make future truck suspension and truck camper travels even better as well. Take a page from Anutami’s book and check out Torklift International upper and lower StableLoad Suspension stabilizers for your next epic roadtrip. Find a Torklift dealer near you or check out our Where to Buy page or contact us at 800-246-8132. Read Anutami's full trip report here

In Case You Have to Drill:

If you find yourself with a lower overload leaf spring that has to be drilled to install the lower StableLoad Suspension Stabilizer, we're here to help. The key to drilling a leaf spring effectively is to apply a significant amount of force using a cordless drill with slow rotation and well-lubricated drill bits. We offer a special StableLoad Leaf Spring Drill Tool as well as drill bits to help you cradle the drill and allows you to slowly guide the drill bit with little effort. The tool does the work for you and is the simplest and quickest method of drilling the leaf spring. The StableLoad Drill Tool is available to rent for FREE with a $150 refundable deposit.
