Default Help me get LEVEL!

Picked up a '15 F150 Supercrew XLT/FX4 and I would like to level it in the front. I'm having trouble finding choices......Please Help!

No lift just level as its a daily driver.

Thanks-John

i believe 1.5" will make you sit level. as far as brand i'd go with Autospring. ive heard nothing but good things about them which is why i bought a 2.5" kit from them for my 213 FX4.

Default Good info!

Thanks, Autospring looks like quality stuff. I like the steel instead of the AL spacers.....(says the man that just bought an ALUMINUM body truck LOL).
Looks like an easy install also.

haha aluminum is very strong, but for suspension i much rather prefer steel. install was very easy for mine. the only issue being getting the strut back in place with the added space on it. you should have a much easier time getting it in there since its only 1.5" and you can also hammer out the lower mounting bolts for more clearance to get them in easier.

Default Hell Bent Steel

I put a 2" Hell Bent Steel leveling kit on my 2013 FX4 a few months ago. I have been very pleased. It leveled my truck perfectly, and it didn't change the ride that much. The install took a few hours, but it wasn't terrible. Make sure you get your truck realigned after you install your leveling kit.

agreed alignment is a must after any suspension modifications.

also if the shop tells you that you need a camber kit to do the alignment correctly, theyre full of crap. the first shop i took mine to tried to charge me $400 for parts, labor, and alignment, i went to a different shop for a second opinion and they did the alignment no problem...

Any of those leveling kits are a good value, but I think the best bang for your buck is to upgrade the front strut to something like a procomp which will level out the ride but also give you increased performance. You can go even further and grab an icon or fox coilover which has awesome performance gains and adjustability.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Default Level '15 F150 Supercrew

First and foremost, before looking at different product types and brands, you'll want to know what " actually gets you level. Measurements between stock even out of the same factory vary slightly. Park your truck on level ground and measure the distance from the top of the wheel well to the ground at both the front and rear of your truck. The difference between the measurements is the front suspension lift you'll need to level. It sounds like you want a basic level and for daily driving a variety of brands manufacture bolt-on billet strut spacers for around $100. They work with factory suspension components and your ride quality will be the same. ReadyLIFT, Supreme Suspensions and Skyjacker are large manufacturers, safe options and sell thousands of these leveling kits each day. Smaller shops mentioned also seem to be good choices.

I know there are many suspension choices out there, and I've personally been through some of them. To simplify things, I ended up with F150Lifts' BOSS suspension. Best out there without breaking the bank on stage 4 Icons or something. www.f150lifts.com Alex is extremely helpful.

Nuff said...
