Default leveling my front end got a couple questions

hey guys i hate how my truck sits unlevel in the front and with the ttb i got options on wha ti can do.

i'm going to go the route with the stock f-150 coil spacers from ford

http://www.therangerstation.com/tech...toryspacer.htm

i kno its pretty straight forward but i wanna know if anyone here knows what camber/caster degree bushings i need or will my stock ones work enough to get it to spec?

this will happen here in a month or so but i wanna have all my parts available now so i can make the appointment, do the lift and go straight to the dealership for an alignment.

thanks in advance!

The F150 coil spacers will not work with ranger coils due to different coil diameters. Get the Rough country coils..they're well worth the money. I think they're $130 + shipping for them You'll need new shocks for the front end as well dont forget. They're around $30 a piece.

As for camber, it will be off between 3-4 degrees possitive. I was 4 degrees off on passenger side and 3 on the driver side.

Good luck with the install and make sure to get some coil spring compressors for the install...they're stiff sons a bitches!

PM me if you need anything else
