X-Spec Suspension Package

Click image for enlarged version
Sport Trac owners can now benefit from the research and development of the original X-Spec Suspension Package. The combination of specific components will give you ride and handling you would not think possible with this kind of vehicle. The bouncy ride and excessive body roll will be gone. Improved handling and stability are gained. The ride is firmer than stock, but not bone jarring. We add specially tuned Edelbrock Shocks, special front bump stops and custom Energy Suspension rear bump stops to make sure the ride quality does not suffer. This kit also benefits from the largest rear sway bar available for a Sport Trac. All of the lowering components are specially made to insure proper fit. Many of these components are not available elsewhere. We also include complete instructions, alignment specs and free tech support. There may be other options regarding lowering your Sport Trac, but none will get the same results as the X-Spec Suspension Package. All of the components that make up the X-Spec Suspension Package are sold separately.

*Note: There are slight differences between the 02 & 03 models. Each kit includes the correct components for the specific year (see below for details). Please check your production date before ordering.

All X-Spec Suspension components are also sold seperately. X-Spec Suspension package includes the following components:

  • larger rear sway bar to reduce body roll
  • moderate lowering to reduce body roll and improve handling characteristics
  • custom tuned Edelbrock shocks for the best control and ride quality
  • special suspension bumpers to improve ride quality

    Edelbrock Performer IAS

    The only shock absorber with the patented Inertia Active System.

    The revolutionary Edelbrock Performer IAS shock absorbers deliver excellent handling and a comfortable ride.
    Our Edelbrock shocks are tuned specifically for Explorers. The dampening forces are set to be stiffer while cornering and softer over rough terrain than conventional shocks. Performer IAS Shocks have a variable dampening rate which helps improve handling as well as ride comfort. The patented Ricor Inertia Active System eliminates the compromise inherent in other designs for a shock that is soft on rough roads and firm on smooth ones. With Edelbrock you get "The Best of Both Worlds" - superior handling and maximum comfort!

    Edelbrock Shocks for lowered Sport Tracs

    All other shocks are designed for the stock suspension travel. When you lower your vehicle you reduce the amount of suspension travel. These special Edelbrock Performer IAS Shocks were designed with less suspension travel in mind. The dampening and valving are appropriate for a lowered Sport Trac. The result is a smooth ride and crisp handling. These shocks work in harmony with the X-Spec Suspension Package, but they are also sold separately.

    Suspension Bumpers

    Click image for enlarged version

    Our suspension Bumpers are recommended for maximum ride quality on lowered Explorers. The fronts allow a little more suspension travel, yet still does a good job of cushioning the suspension when all the travel is gone. The rear bumpers are a voided design, specially modified to work on your Explorer, that provide progressive damping depending on amount of axle movement. They combine to provide the ultimate ride comfort on lowered Explorers. For 2wd or 4wd. Fits 2001-2004 Sport Trac.
