Default Presenting Top Gun Customz NEW 2009 Ford F-150 Leveling Lift Kit


This is a brand new "NOW PATENTED" leveling lift kit for the 2009 Ford F-150 4 wheel drive and 2 wheel drive. These will lift the front of your truck about 2 1/2". These are manufactured by TOP GUN CUSTOMZ.

This leveling kit will not fit the Heratige Models, due to the changes in the suspension system.

This kit...
+New "Now Patented" Design
+
Installs in as little as 1 hour.
+ Does NOT require spring compressor or disassembly of the strut like ALL
the poly kits do.

+ Does not affect ride at all.
+ Made from 1/4" thick laser cut steel.
+ Install instructions included.
+ Lifetime Warranty!!
THESE THINGS ARE INDESTRUCTABLE!
The highest quality materials are used including zinc plated hardware and nylon-locking nuts. Because these are so unique and easy to install, they are "NOW PATENTED". Also, with the polyurethane kits, a spacer is installed BETWEEN the coil spring and the top of the strut. That puts preload on the spring which noticeably stiffens up the ride. With ours, you simply unbolt the strut from the vehicle, install the steel spacers on top of the strut and bolt everything back up. RIDE QUALITY IS UNCHANGED. This kit does wonders for the look of your new truck. It is recommended that you have the alignment checked after installation. This kit comes with all hardware which is zinc plated and complete instructions. The spacers are offered in black finish.
if you have any questions about this kit or the components used, please feel free to contact us Toll Free at 1-877-274-9362. or you can e-mail us at sales@topguncustomz.com

pricing and who carries them in Alberta Canada. Anyone know what size tires we can go to with a 2-2.5" levelling kit installed in the front?

Yes. The 2" kit I had installed, has truly 'leveled' my truck at 39.5" both front and rear. When measured on level concrete, from the ground to the lower/center lip of the fender. You would not want the front end higher, especially when you go to put a load on the hitch receiver, when you hook up your boat.

The kit my installer, Les Schwab Tire & Brake used, is all steel, required no compression of the springs, no mods to the OE portions of the suspension, installed in exactly one hour (less alignment time) was modestly priced, and the ride/handling is unchanged.

Kit, labor, alignment: $268.00 out the door.

Default not fitting...

Does anyone have pictures of the install for this kit? I purchased the kit for my 09 F150 4x4, but after I put the spacers on my strut assemblies, I could not get the struts back into place. The lower A-arm would not drop far enough to get the bottom of the strut into the socket. I even tried to compress the springs on the strut, but that didn't help either. Has anyone run into the same problems?

Did you use a bottle jack between the lower control arm and the upper strut tower?

Default finally got it

I did use a jack to release the upper ball joint. I called TGC, and the technical support was very helpful. He told me to pop the cover off the center of the hub, then remove the nut, which holds the half shaft in place. After I did that, I was closer, but still not all the way there. I ended up taking out bolts that hold 2 brackets for the brake line, and I was able to get it low enough (just barely) to put the bottom in place. I took pictures and recorded the sockets, so I'll try to do a nice installation guide shortly. The directions from TGC lacked any info about loosening the half shafts or taking off the brake line brackets.

Default new thread

Here are some instructions I created on how to install this leveling kit on 2009 4x4 F150's. I tried to add pictures and details since the instructions with the kit leave some important points out.
