The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) has created a Suspension Task Force to liaise with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) regarding the association's policies on altered-height vehicles.
The task force comprises representatives of vehicle suspension, wheel, tire and brake equipment manufacturers, dealers and installers. It already is engaged in discussions with the AAMVA's working group on altered-height vehicles, which is reviewing the group's policies governing bumper and frame height limits for light-duty trucks and sport-utility vehicles for possible changes, SEMA said.
``The primary goal of working with other associations and governmental agencies is to open lines of communication with influential entities that can have an impact on the vehicle suspension, tire and brake industries,'' said Task Force Chairman Ken Yoder of Race Car Dynamics Inc./RCD Suspension.
The task force has compiled a list of all state laws impacting altered-height vehicles, including those on maximum allowable bumper and frame heights, tire and wheel sizes and other equipment restrictions.
