Where are our suspensions made?
This question comes to us a lot, so let’s break it down. Some states require all components be made in the same location to be “made in the USA” and as we source parts from all over the world, that phrase can’t legally be used. It’s complicated and I’m not a lawyer, so “built/ assembled in the USA” is the proper/ safe way to say it.
As we get parts from all over, let’s dive in..
- Top plate assemblies, Japan
- Bump stops, unknown (bought from a supplier)
- Dust boots, unknown (bought from a supplier)

Using various parts from all over the world, final assembly take place here in the USA.
