My 2013 FX2 Ecoboost lowered 4/6 pulling my dovetail trailer on factory wheels and also the new sneakers.

@Simple_FX2 Specs on your drop. Notched in rear? Overall ride quality?

With helper bags there would be nothing to worry about.

I am running the Belltech 972SP kit. After the kit settled I measured 4/6 drop. This kit is utilizes struts in the front and am axle flip kit in the rear. The ride quality never changed after installing the kit. Once I installed the 24X10 Sardinia-6 wheels is when the ride quality suffered a little.

Exactly! I am running the firestone ride-rite 2525 kit. Firestone said this kit does not work with FX2 but I never noticed a reason why. I had to make some adjustments to the lower bag mounts, relocate brake lines, and have longer ubolts made to accommodate the axle flip kit. BUT I tow with my truck all the time.
