Door jamb sticker...under SPR.


You've just got a normal run of the mill XLT....nothing special on those Fx4's. You either have B bars or #1's because you're 4.0, 4dr, 4x4. The sticker will say something like 11kk 11cc bbkk bbcc....or maybe singles of each...i've seen both before on newer trucks.

do those leveling keys really work. and do they really keep from putting strain on the front suspension parts? i dont believe them one bit.

people say about 4 turns. Back in the day I measured before I did it then cranked them until I got about 1.5 to 2 inches. Bounced the suspension to let them settle. Then adjusted accordingly then aligned it

1 is the highest rated bar.

C is the highest rated leaf.

K leaves are the lowest grade on a torsion bar truck....but there's only 2 grades of leaves on torsion bar trucks too. lol.
