Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Number 126 was established in order to prevent injury and accident by placing new regulations on the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) to prevent single vehicle rollovers. FMVSS-126 applies to new passenger vehicles under 10,000 lbs GVWR. To make sure that vehicle and aftermarket manufacturers are compliant with the new standards, Link Engineering Co. opens up their proving grounds testing facility outside of Phoenix, Arizona to put products like ReadyLIFT® Suspension kits through the specific vehicle test procedures.
The rigorous testing involves the installation of a specialized robot and computer system in the vehicle. Afterward, the test vehicle is run on a closed course test track performing a series of aggressive steering maneuvers and corrections. The robot calculates all of the forces and checks whether the vehicle is performing within the standards. ReadyLIFT performed this test with many of suspension systems to provide substantiated data that our suspension systems for trucks like Ford, Chevy, GMC, etc are compliant with FMVSS-126. Our positive testing of many worst-case lift configurations ensures our everyday kits meet or exceed industry standards for safety and security. Testing like this is a priority for ReadyLIFT. Vehicle and customer safety is paramount in the design and production of all ReadyLIFT products. We are proud to offer kits that not only perform, but provide the highest level of safety our customers demand.
