Specter offers a Lift Kit for those customers who want new springs for their 40 Series, but do not want the great deal of added lift that our 4 Inch Lift Kit offers. This 2 Inch Lift Kit is a great way to eliminate your worn out stock suspension.
 
Each kit includes the following items:
SOR Heavy Duty Leaf Springs - Quantity 4 - These multi tapered leaf springs are manufactured using the highest quality 5160H alloy spring steel. SOR's Front Heavy Duty Leaf Springs have six multi tapered leafs per stack. The Rear Heavy Duty Leaf Springs have five multi tapered leafs per stack to provide a soft, flexible suspension, built to exacting tolerances.

Explorer Pro-Comp Extended Shocks - Quantity 4 - Explorer Pro-Comp Shock Absorbers are a 10-stage, velocity sensitive valving that delivers a superior highway ride, maximum performance, and control off-road. Expanded fluid reservoir and twin tube construction increases fluid capacity up to 50%. This, combined with Pro-Comp's exclusive fluid, allows the Pro-Comp Shock Absorbers to perform consistently in all climates even under the most extreme conditions, reduces shock temperature, and protects internal components. Shock boots should be ordered separately when you purchase a lift kit. These boots keep the dirt out of the shaft and away from the shaft seal which reduces the possibility of premature shaft seal failure, thus longer shock life. Shock boots come in your choice of colors black, red, yellow, and blue.

Anti-Inversion Plated Tri-Shackles - Quantity 4 - These stock length shackles are case hardened with grease fittings, and use stock size bushings (included).

Graphite Impregnated Poly Bushings - Quantity 24

U-Bolts With Washers & Nuts - Quantity 8


Pit Bull Tested

SOR Heavy Duty Leaf Springs are made in North America by a leading spring manufacturer that supplies OEM spring components to auto manufacturers and military contractors world wide.

Caster Spring Shims

When a vehicle is lifted using an extended shackles, the steering caster angle changes from the stock -1 deg. angle. This creates undue wear on steering components (Knuckle Bearings, Tie Rod Ends, Steering Box). You may also notice your vehicle wander or follow grooves in the road (under inflated tires and other worn steering components will also cause wandering). This problem can be corrected by using Caster Spring Shims. In vehicles with V-8 and or automatic transmission conversions that require the rear drive shaft to be shortened, Caster Spring Shims can help relieve stress on U-joints by rotating the rear pumpkin up. Sold in pairs. If your suspension modification requires the use of spring shims, be sure to purchase leaf centering pins with extended heads to compensate for the additional space added between the spring and spring perch on the axle housing. See part number #287-36.

Caster Spring Shims rotate the axle back to a stock tolerance:
Shackle
Shim
1" - 1 1/2" longer than stock
2.5 degree
2" - 2 1/2" longer than stock
4.0 degree
3" & longer
6.0 degree
Spring Shim Diagram 1
This image shows the stock
position of the axle housing.
Spring Shim Diagram 2
When you raise a vehicle by adding longer shackles, the axle housing rotates downward changing the angle of the differential and steering components. Using the proper shim rotates the axle and steering components back to the correct position.
Spring Shim Diagram 3
In the rear of the vehicle, extended shackles increase the operating angle of universal joints of the driveshaft. Use spring shims on rear leaf springs to rotate the front of the differential up and alleviate u-joint binding.




If your suspension modification requires the use of spring shims, be sure to purchase leaf centering pins with extended heads to compensate for the additional space added between the spring and spring perch on the axle housing. See part number #287-36.

Leaf Spring Centering Pins

Leaf Spring Center Pin with Spring Shim Diagram

When using stock leaf springs, it's important and recommended that you change the Leaf Spring Centering Pin to one that has a longer head. Doing this will compensate for the additional thickness of the shim and limit the possibility of slippage. Sold in pairs.
