Front - 34.5" Rear - 35" To have it completely level and still have a good ride do 7.5 turns on the drivers side & 8.5 turns on the passenger side Front - 35" Rear - 35" If you want to MAX out your Tbars it will be 9 turns on the drivers side & 10 on your passenger side. **WARNING** It Will Ride Like $hit Front - 35.5" Rear - 35" No Picture **All Measurements Were Done After The Suspension Settles**
Did you have any problems with how much the bottoms of your tires came in or the camber of them?

If I jack up one side of the truck and then crank the bars then set it down and do the other side I won't harm anything will I. I only ask because I just have the tire jack

You might be able to borrow jack stands from a auto parts store. I did it with a torque wrench and all you have to do is put money down then you get it back when you take the jack stands back

So why crank more on one side than the other? I've done seven on both and the driver side is still the lower than the passenger

Finally got around to having my 2011 lifted 1" - front now 34" and back still at 34 1/2". Ford dealer turned driver side 5 times and passenger side 5 1/2 times. Just that small lift gives the truck a better look and it seems to drive about the same. I just had new tires put on, so I got the alignment done too. I guess getting old is making me cheaper - got Goodyear Wrangler Trailmark tires a Walmart special. Dave

dealer charged $25 for the lift and $59 for the alignment.

Can I do this with the factory keys on a 2010 fx4? Yes in Canada we have 2010 fx4's. I just want to lift it 2" max to level out with the back

Those that have cranked the T bars have any ever changed the length of the sway bar links from factory ones?
