Anytime I mess with the ride height it is ALWAYS a good idea to go to a tire shop and have your alignment checked. Most tire shops won't charge you just to check,beats roasting your tires in 5k. Go get it checked.

EDIT:One of the bolts is longer for some reason....don't ask me why,its ford and their better ideas.

One of the bolts are longer because the drivers side always has a lean to it.
