    Official Raptor Suspension Thread

    Several of us on this forum have an interest in getting more travel out of our suspension as opposed to big lifts that only serve an aesthetic purpose. One of the best ways to do this is a mid travel or a long travel setup. The long travel setups are the best (IMO), but a more realistic option for our wallets is a mid travel setup (like a raptor).

    The purpose of this thread is to generate information on the parts needed and expectations for a complete raptor swap out (suspension parts only).

    For only about $3000-$4500, we can have the exact same suspension as a raptor, and still have the insane power from or ecoboosts. The reason the price will vary is because you can get used parts for significantly cheaper. The parts on my spreadsheet are brand new parts from Tasca.

    Below is a spreadsheet with all parts needed to complete the swap. I ask all to review this list and make the necessary changes. For example, I was unable to locate part numbers and pricing for some of the parts. Feel free to chime in. My goal is to have a complete list of all parts, numbers, and prices.

    You guys have no idea how fast I'd be hitting the whoops (read: speed bumps) in the wilds of suburbia if I could afford LT. I mean... FAST.
