Raptor bent frame complaints
RAPTOR BENT FRAME COMPLAINTS
Ford could be in some trouble. In an exclusive report, Autoblog interviewed the Special Vehicle Team’s Chief Nameplate Engineer about problems with the SVT Raptor pickup. It seems some owners have managed to bend the frames of their trucks, and that’s not supposed to happen on an off-road performance machine. The number of Raptors involved is small – maybe 10 trucks– but still, this is not supposed to happen. The pickups affected seem to have been modified, with owners swapping out suspension parts and changing the programs on their engines’ computers to remove the speed limiter. These alterations change how the suspension gets loaded and allows them to drive MUCH faster over bumps. Even so, the frames shouldn’t be bending.
