ADDING VENOM PERFORMANCE PARTS THAT MAKE YOUR FORD SVT RAPTOR EVEN MORE DEADLY BY CANDACE WITTROCK AND DAN SANCHEZ F or most off-road enthusiasts, the Ford SVT Raptor is the top factory-built off-road truck with a race- inspired suspension and a menacing appearance. While Ford made this truck tough enough to handle high- speed desert terrain, leave it to off-road enthusiasts to take a great platform to the next level. Fortunately, there are plenty of aftermarket accessories for the Raptor that can help turn any stock or mildly modified truck, and turn it into a serious pre-runner style vehicle. Many of these components are not cheap, but they provide the truck with greater wheel travel, more power, and race-ready shocks. Simply put, adding some of these items allows the truck to travel in difficult terrain at much higher speeds, without bending or tearing up factory suspension components. While these are definitely not all of the performance components that are currently available for the Ford Raptor, these are some of the best that the industry has to offer, and when installed, can take your truck up a few notches in performance, and in respect from your peers.SJ ADDICTIVE DESERT DESIGNS STAGE THREE SUSPENSION SYSTEM The Ford Raptor Stage 3 Front Performance Suspension System from Addictive Desert Designs (Part Number: U01944NA03) allows Raptor owners to add one and a half inches of ride height, allowing the vehicle to clear 37-inch tires. The A.D.D. Upper Control Arm houses a 1.5-inch spherical bearing and Trophy Truck style Delrin bushings. The system includes Fox coil-over shocks, the upper control arms, a tie rod end kit, and spindle adapter 072 SCORE JOURNAL
