The Traxda 2" lift kit is designed to fit and work with the Honda Ridgeline award winning design. The top & bottom end plates on all Traxda strut caps/spacers butt against the spacer tube to achieve the highest level of strength. The welds simply hold the spacer together while the end plates carry all the "load" of the suspension. Compare this design to other manufacturers who have the end load caps slide over the spacer tube with the weld having to withstand the load capacity.
New sway bar links are provided ensuring the sway bars are not under bind or load. A different length link is required to keep the geometry the same as Honda designed it to be. Drive line angles were maintained for long life on the CV joints.
Honda chose this Traxda lift to be on their own corporate vehicle for the Honda Motorcross team truck. That says it all!
