Edit to above i will be issuing call back tags to pick up parts. No use to get rear lowered if front they cant come down. Rear shackles only thing at this point to even up with the front.

Just going by my experience, 2014 struts won't fit 2013 lower control arms. DJM hasn't called me back yet, but if you look through their website they havent come out with a new LCA design for a F150 in a long time.

Stand up vendor! Another option maybe to find a good source for take off 2013 struts and send them with your drop arm kits?

im good friends with the owner jef and mike and mark there for years. I have my own control arms they make for me for the Traiblazer SS's. As for a arms the 04-08 is one style and 09-13 is another. I deal with them daily and im sure they will take care of you. That being said I already have call back tags issued to get the parts picked up that i shipped and refunded my customers money already. IM sure the guys over there will take care of you.

They will not be back in the office till the 2nd at DJM just a heads up.

I just read an article on the current/latest issue of Truckin' Magazine where there lowered a 2014 Reguler Cab F150 using a DJM 3/5 kit and they use the factory struts.

I was comparing pics of the control arms to HawaiiKid's control arms and it looks like it's not actually a 2014 F150 in their article like they claim.
Article starts on page 108 of vol.40 no.2 and it's a Blue Flame colored truck if anyone is interested in reading I could scan the pages onto here.

Good to know-I just want to make sure no one else gets caught like this!

I just pulled the pictures off my phone but they are def not 14 LCAs! Unless there was an early run of 14s with 13 struts and LCAs...

these are not the standard color wheels. they all come black. I trade for the gray color. looks much better in my opinion.

Also I have not had a chance to measure the height from the ground to the fender yet on level ground. I purchased this truck with the intention to lower it.

Here are some pics of mine:
Wow. Very nice trucks guys.
I'm thinking about lowering my 08 but it wouldn't look nearly as good as your trucks lowered!!
