Skyjacker Suspensions - Proven Compliant with FMVSS 126 Safety Standards

We have tested the new 2014 GM with our 6-7" lift to prove compliance with the FMVSS 126 mandate. Through SEMA and the advanced testing by Link Engineering that involves robotic steering and outrigger equipment we have demonstrated our compliance with this safety standard and are proud to announce we have passed the rigorous FMVSS 126 physical testing.

A series of tests were done to measure the vehicles stability during the FMVSS 126 test. The sensors and monitors kept track of all the vehicles movements and dynamics as it passed down the track. These tests measure with great accuracy how the vehicle reacts after modification and was done to ensure Skyjacker products work in harmony with the Electronic Stability Control (ESC). The ESC is an active control system that affects both vehicle performance and safety to reduce rollovers. By applying individual brakes and modulating engine torque, this system has been shown to significantly reduce vehicle accident rates and fatalities. With this trend repeatedly being documented worldwide, NHTSA established FMVSS 126, mandating ESC on all production vehicles with a GVW rating of 10,000 lbs or less by September, 2011. Further, it requires vehicles modified by the aftermarket to still meet the performance requirements of the regulation after September, 2012. This regulation provides an opportunity for aftermarket parts manufacturers to take advantage of a program which provides access to the engineering analysis necessary for demonstrating FMVSS No. 126 compatibility.

Our commitment to cutting-edge technology has been a huge focus for the company over our 40 years in business. We have always done testing in-house and built our products to surpass quality standards. We are enthusiasts and also get out and test our products in real world settings. Lonnie McCurry JR said of the test "We feel by taking this additional step and having this third party testing done to show our lifts to be compatible with the ESC equipment is just another way to ensure that our customers know we go above and beyond to give them a quality product". Through the efforts of SEMA we have access to the standards and test procedures needed to self-certify and prove compliance with this new standard.
