I was glad my buddy was able to come over. My dad in the white shirt has done a axle swap before my buddy and I have never so he supervised.
3 people was just enough. My dad has had 2 back surgeries so he was limited on the lifting

Looks good Myke.
There is maybe about 1" or 1/2" Of course those are out of a 2006 FX4 mine is a 05" Edge
I noticed the diffrence right away when we sat it down then when i got back and looked at it from the side I could tell. After driving it I noticed it more
