Leveling Idea-any thoughts?
Anyhooo--I've cranked the bars as much as I can stand, threw in a 1" bodylift a couple of weeks ago and I've got the height about where I want it with the 265-75R16s-BUT it still has too much rake for my liking--the BL really intensified the nose-down attitude that we're all trying to get rid of. I got to thinking a while back-"what about lowering the back to level it out?" If i could lose about 1-1/2", it would be about perfect. Seeing as how the '08+ all sit lower, I crawled under the back of my truck and measured the blocks between the leafs and the axle--about 2-1/2". Then I drove to the local Ford store, and would you look at that-they have a '10 4x4 XLT sitting on the lot. Grabbed my trusty Stanley Powerlok, crawled underneath, and wouldn't you know it-blocks measure about 1-1/4". I JUST FOUND A WAY TO LOSE 1-1/4"! OH CRAP-HERE COMES A SALESMAN! So, 45 minutes passed,got home, hopped onto Tasca's website and ordered 2-each of the following:
#8L5Z5598A Leaf Spring Axle U-bolt Spacer
#8L5Z5705A U-bolt kit
Should be here next week-I'll keep you posted
I think it's gonna work like a charm.
