Superlift Question on cam washers

Doing my lift cam washers will not fit on my Upper control arm bolts 03 FX 4
I thought I read some where that you need to buy adjustable bolts if yours
did not work now I can not find that link anyone know what I am talking about
I think it has something to do with front end alinement am skipping this step for now and moving forward let me know what you all come up with
Thanks

I still don't understand how Superlift wants you to use their supplied cam washers with the kit...they don't work! lol.


If I was in your shoes, and I am in them persay, I'd get these bolts linked below. Put 'em in/on the truck, THEN get your alignment. You'll be fine for a while til you get your alignment...hell I got 50k on my lift and still havn't aligned it! lol. I've got 'em on my truck and so does my little brother. They allow 3 degrees of positive or negative camber adjustability. And they're decently priced and you'll get 'em within a couple days. Order a quantity of 2, not 4. If you put in 4, you'll get a total of 8 bolts. That's actually how I got mine....link lists "sold individually"...turns out, sold by a per side basis.

Here's them installed on a superlifted truck...

I can't get mine squared away without 'em. The stock bolts allow for virtually no adjustment.


That's good to hear, Stuart. Mind posting pics just to see what Ford offers?

ohhh...so THAT's how they work! It's been forever since I've tried to install those supplied washers. lol.

Are both 'washers' the same diameter and shape?

Thanks Stuart.
