WARNING: MODIFIED VEHICLES MAY ROLL OVER
Van Compass after market suspension products and accessories modify a vehicle for uses which exceed conditions anticipated by the vehicle manufacturer. The uses include the high performance demands required during off-road. These conditions vary in the degree of extremity and can not be controlled by the vehicle or product manufacturer. If the components within the suspension system or accessories become worn due to frequent and/or extreme off-road use, the safety and reliability of the vehicle is at risk. The maintenance of after market equipment to ensure the vehicle occupants safety is entirely your responsibility. Do not purchase Van Compass manufactured products or components unless you are willing to accept this responsibility. Do not install any Van Compass suspension products or accessories unless you feel competent at installing the product without causing present or future injury to yourself or other vehicle occupants; seek an authorized installation center.
