From the Driver Seat
Having spent extensive time behind the wheel of both factory and lowered Equators, I was blown away by the improvement in both ride and handling of Drift King. Corner turn-in is now nice and neutral without the typical push of rear-wheel-drive trucks. The ride is stiff, yet compliant enough for long drives and freeway cruising. Bumpsteer is nonexistent and traction is incrediblethere’s no axle wrap or tire hop. Lock-to-lock steering will quickly cause the shortened spindles to run out of room, which decreases overall turning radius, but with a midsized crew cab truck, turning radius was never impressive to start with. Overall, we’re extremely pleased with the Equator’s suspension transformation and we’re looking forward to dialing it in with a bigger front sway bar to help control the body roll.
