Default Prekey Mod

Hey fellas....I'm going to order a set of factory keys to do the prekey mod from TascaParts, but I have no idea which one to order.
part number 13 from:
http://www.tascaparts.com/partlocato...layCatalogid=0

OR

part number 8 from:
http://www.tascaparts.com/partlocato...layCatalogid=0

My spidey senses tells me I should order part number 13, but I was hoping you guys might be able to clear this up for me before I place an order

Haha I didnt realize that there were two different diagrams...Are you sure though, the parts do look pretty similar in the diagram and they are both labeled adjusters, but the dates of use for #8 is 04-07 where as for # 13 its 98-07 which is the same lenght of time that original keys were used.

In 2007 Ford made the keys smaller. So the amount of lift when cranking the torsion bars was not that much. If you switch to keys used in trucks from 2006 and older you get more lift.

They call the key the "adjuster" because it is what adjust the height.

That one is the link that connects the stabilizer bar to the lower control arm

Hmm I agree with you that that part is not the key, but that also isnt #13... if you clicked on the page for part 8 then the link that connects to the lower control arm is #13 but if you click on the separate link to #13's page in the other diagram the link is labled #8 and part #13 looks suspiciously identical to a torsion key (also has the correct years used and is labled "adjuster")

Either way I appreciate you taking the time to try and help me figure this out, I'm a bit of a noob.

Yes in the one diagram it is #13 which is a different view. The other it is #8 which is a different view. Same thing just numbered different for different views.
