Truck Performance Systems


Hot on the heels of our Jeep Wrangler performance shocks, Falcon Shocks has entered the truck performance market with its new line of Falcon Truck Performance Systems for Ford F-150, RAM 1500, Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500, and Toyota Tacoma.


Current Falcon Truck Performance Systems include the Sport Leveling System and the Sport Tow/Haul Leveling System. But these kits are more than just replacement shocks. These complete shock absorber systems include all of the parts and accessories required to give your pickup a sporty and controlled ride and/or increased towing and hauling capabilities.


Falcon Performance Shocks are the new benchmark in shock development!
