LT information

I tried searching but I am so lost, even google didn't help me.

What is the point of LT suspension? What's the difference between ie. King coil overs and some FT suspension.

sorry for the question!

dumbing it down..
LT uses longer arms in the front and different rear setups to get way, way more travel out of the truck's suspension
It's mainly used for high-speed desert running, so the beefier coilovers and bypasses you see on the trucks are used to control movement of the suspension at speed.

LT guys jump their trucks, run over whoops at speeds that would destroy normal trucks.
