Our Stage 4 Topo 2.0 kit represents the pinnacle of performance in suspension upgrades for your 2013-UP Ford Transit. This system pairs the adjustable rear Falcon 3.3 SP2 shocks, with a true 2.0" of lift for improved ground clearance while maintaining factory alignment specifications. This tuned suspension system will dramatically improve your ride quality and our Topo kit was developed specifically to work around the packaging and front CV shaft constraints presented by the 2020 AWD Transit platform. This kit is compatible with RWD Transit models from 2013-present, and fits all single rear wheel vans. The Stage 4 kit is designed specifically for built out camper vans or work vehicles that run at or near GVWR all the time. 8500lb vehicle weight and up.
The center piece of the Stage 4 kit are the Falcon 3.3 SP2 Adjustable rear shocks, which are tuned to our specifications. These upgraded dampers feature a 2.35" piston that will smooth out the harshness experienced on washboard roads and sharp, abrupt impacts. An intuitive, easy to adjust knob allows the user to easily fine tune their ride based on load, terrain, and driver preference. The bounce experienced over large bumps is reduced as well as the side to side sway or jostling over uneven surfaces. Our Rear Shock Relocation Brackets allow for increased ground clearance and move the vulnerable shaft of your shock out of harm's way.
Our Topo Front Lift kit combines a precision engineered 0.75" lift camber correction plate, with a tuned coil spring. By engineering the spring length and rate to our specifications, our tuned spring nets approximately 1.25" of lift with a corresponding increase in compression travel.
For optimum ride quality improvement, the Stage 4 Topo 2.0 package includes a Bilstein B6 strut for a great improvement in front end damping control. The Bilstein B6 strut has the coil spring perch welded onto the strut body at a 0.5" higher height than the factory strut which preloads the coil spring an additional 0.5" for slightly more lift.
Rear lift is accomplished by our proven 5 leaf mini spring pack. This 5 leaf mini pack works in conjunction with the factory leaf pack to provide a 10-15% spring rate increase in the rear while lifting the back of the van anywhere from 2.0" to 2.5" depending on vehicle weight. Friction reducing tips on our leaves ensure a smooth, quiet ride.
We recommend running a maximum tire size of 265/75/16 with this suspension package. This tire size will require some slight trimming of the inner pinch seam, and depending on tire tread profile, some rubbing of the subframe is possible at full steering lock. With a Bilstein B6 strut, an astounding 12-3/4" of ground clearance is achieved under the center of the front suspension cross member with this tire size.

With this suspension package installed, the Ford Transit is an absolute joy to drive on all road conditions.
