Q. What does the MAXXCam do for my truck?
A. Independent Front Suspension (IFS) vehicles with torsion bars have numerous advantages over prior designs such as a smooth comfortable ride, truly independent wheel travel and its design allows for CV front drive. GM has 16 different torsion bar part #s for various build options. Cab styles (Standard cab, Extended Cab, 4 door crew cabs, Long box. Short Box) engine combinations ( 4.6 L 5.3 L 6.0 L 8.1 L and the Duramax 6.0 ) transmission options (Manual ,Automatic, Alison heavy duty ) All yielding various loads on the suspension.

The static weight of the vehicle, payload, continuous shock loads caused by normal everyday driving cause wear and a fatigue on the suspension system. These dynamic forces are constantly twisting the torsion bar as the suspension cycles through its range of travel from fully unloaded to fully compressed.

Suspension torsion bars carry high loads up to 5,000 ft Lbs of torque. This high load and stress placed on the torsion bars affects the factory calibration.

Most noticeable is that low front end look, minimal ground clearance and lack of suspension travel causing the truck to look as though it needs helper springs, overload springs or possibly a 2 inch to 2.5 in inch lift kit.

Torsion bars can be very expensive to purchase and replace costing hundreds of dollars each plus installation and still not level it up.

SuspensionMAXX has designed and created the patented MAXXCam 2 - two piece Adjustable Torsion Bar Lever to lift late model full size truck & SUVs 1-2 inches.

MAXXCam 2 leveling kits compensate for wear, sag & fatigue of the original torsion bars for the life of the vehicle without the need for expensive torsion bar replacement. The MAXXCam's innovative removable internal geared hub can be preset to 1 of 7 positions prior to installation so just the right amount of lift is achieved.

These features allow the MAXXCam 2 to be a custom calibrated to the owner's individual preferences. The torsion bar lever key is an exact replacement component to fit all full-size GMtrucks and sport utility vehicles.

This part accommodates the Chevy Silverado Z71 4X4s K1500, K2500, k3500 including the HD models. Also the Chevrolet Tahoe, Tahoe XL, Suburban, Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4X4 and 2X4, Chevy Avalanche 2500, GMC Sierra K1500/K2500, GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, GMC Denali, Cadillac Escalade, Cadillac EXT, 2WD HD Siera/Silverado C2500/C3500, Silverado K3500 and Hummer H2


Q. What if I install a 4 inch lift kit? Will it level my truck?
A. Installing a 4 inch lift kit will add 4 inches to the front and add 4 inches to the rear. Your truck will continue to have a downward slant to it. Some lift kit manufactures address this by only lifting the rear 2 inches. Leveling the front with one of our Advanced Leveling Systems is an easy alternative to high cost lift kits.

Q.How will my truck ride?
A. Calibrating the MAXXCam 2 level kit to the recommended amount could actually improve ride quality by increasing suspension travel. This added amount will allow the suspension to operate fully. Causing less contact with the suspension strike out bumper and a smother ride

Q.Will I need longer shocks?
A. No. Our MAXXcams can be calibrated to elevate your truck or SUV to just the right amount so that you use the original shock absorber. Saving you the expense of buying new shocks.

Q.What if I install longer lift kit shocks , can I lift my truck 3 inches?
A. No. The shock limits wheel travel and prevents over elevating the steering and driveline angles. Adding longer shocks can cause elevated wear on steering, driveline, and chassis components. ents. ents. ents. SuspensionMAXX recommends not adding longer shocks.

Q.Will I need a wheel alignment after the my new leveling kit is installed?
A.Yes Whenever items are changed on the steering or suspension, a basic wheel alignment will be required. Performing wheel alignments at scheduled intervals will assure you the best value from your tires and a safe handling vehicle.

Q.What makes the 2 piece design as strong as the non adjustable key it replaces?
A.Computer Engineering! We addressed these concerns by adding mass where needed and created a uniform high strength unit. One look at our MAXXCam 2 and you'll see the Lasting Quality!

Q.What makes the your leveling kit suitable for off road use?
A.Knowing that our products would be abused off-road, durability and brute strength was the main concern when developing our products.

Q.Are MAXXCams durable enough for heavy duty use?
A.YES! Our MAXXCams are manufactured from 4140 alloy steel utilizing the latest investment casting technology. Every MAXXcam is heat treated to ensure added strength. You depend on your truck! Trust your truck to SuspensionMAXX. Your truck deserves the best!

Q.Will installing this leveling kit add front end load capabilities?
A.NO. The existing torsion bars are designed specifically for each vehicle, and have specific spring rates. This product does not increase spring rate. If you are mounting apparatuses to the front of your vehicle, calculate the weight.
CAUTIONS
-Never exceed the vehicles maximum front gross vehicle weight capacity!
-Over adjusting the torsion bar suspension is not suggested nor is it recommended.
-Have an ASE certified front end technician install our product.


Q.What tire size can I expect to run on my truck after installing your product?
A.With our MAXXCams installed you should be able to fit LT285s, utilizing stock wheel dimensions.

Q.Why not crank the bolts?
A.Our Cams our designed to hold the torsion bar torque. The pretension bolts level the ride, side-to-side, not lift front to rear. Cranking the vehicles torsion bars can cause an unbalanced ride. Cranking of the bolt is not recommended either. If your truck with IFS suspension is noticeably unlevel (1-2 inches lower) you will need our MAXXCam to compensate for that amount of unlevel indifference from front to rear..

Q.Can I install your leveling kit myself?
A.The torsion bar is heavily loaded in the vehicle and has extreme force. Working on the suspension may seem harmless, but only when the proper tools and equipment are used is the torsion bar system safe. We recommend that our kits be installed by an ASE certified technician or experienced mechanic using all the right procedures.
