Default Roadmaster Active Suspension. Ready for anything. **Exclusive Pricing**

Spring is almost here, make sure your F150 is ready to handle all your towing and hauling needs with the Roadmaster Active Suspension!
  • "Air bag", sway bar and traction bar all rolled into one!
  • Range of adjustability AND "Set it and forget it"
  • Never worry about messing with air pressure or maintenance
  • WILL NOT stiffen/harden stock ride
  • 1 hour installation



Description
The Roadmaster Active Suspension is a heavy duty, variably rated coil spring that works as a muscle to hold the rear leaf spring in their optimum bowed position at all times. the more weight put on the truck, the more the RAS goes to work for you. No need to readjust, set it and forget it. Because the RAS is the only patented leaf spring suspension upgrade that works with the existing leaf springs to convert the traditional "passive" leaf spring suspension into an "active" suspension, the RAS offers a combination of benefits no other aftermarket suspension upgrade is able to provide.


Benefits of an RAS System
Load Support- Because the RAS works to hold the leaf springs in their optimum bowed position at all times, the leaf springs are strengthened thus greatly reducing rear end sag when loaded to manufacturer max GVWR.
Handling/Stability- Greatly improves overall vehicles performance in all road conditions! By not allowing the spring to flatten out, the vehicle corners more level by compensating for side to side weight transfer, resulting in greater contact of all four tires to the road. This provides improved traction, which translates to better driver control and stability. Excess spring rebound(bounce) is also reduced when negotiating bumps and uneven road surface, providing a much more comfortable ride 100% of the time!
Axle Wrap/Wheel Hop-This is an issue that has affected a large amount of F150 Truck owners on this site. Those that have installed the RAS have reported results varying from greatly reducing to completely eliminating the axle wrap/wheel hop problem.

DO-IT-YOURSELF Installation
Each kit comes fully assembled out of the box, comes with illustrated instructions and can be easily installed without any special tools within 60-90 minutes. Requires no drilling, cutting or modification of any sort.

I have been installing Roadmasters on my truck and my customers for the last 10 years. I think it is the best upgrade you can do to a leak spring rear suspension. Especially if you are towing or hauling heavy loads

kind of a random question, but would these do anything to lessen wheel hop during hard acceleration?

also, is it compatible with an aftermarket rear block that's larger than the stock one?

Hey DavidKR,

Great question. The RAS does help with lessening wheel hop during hard acceleration. I would say nearly half of all kits sold to F150forum members over the last year or two has been for some sort of wheel hop issue. Based on feedback that I have gotten, the trucks that are experiencing this issue at lower speeds(0-20mph), from a dead stop have seen better results with the RAS setup as this is a true wheel hop situation!

The RAS IS typically compatible with aftermarket blocks. We want to make sure the block is not shaped any differently to where any portion of that block protrudes around the exterior of the u-bolts. As you can see in our design, RAS brackets fit tightly around the u-bolts.

From my experience most aftermarket blocks will work with the RAS.

I have RAS on my 2010 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X, love it! Has helped out immensely with towing and rear end stability in general. I just picked up a 2014 F150 FX4 this weekend and putting together plans for adding RAS and other mods as well.

Highly recommend RAS though, you won't be disappointed!

That is good to hear....do you (or have you ever) experienced the take of shudder that most associate with axle wrap? I am hoping this will eliminate that issue since I am about to purchase a 5th wheeler and could only imaging how bad the shudder will get with all of the added rear axle weight....my order gets here on Thursday so I will be installing it this weekend!
