Default How to Install a Leveling kit on a 2009-2014 F-150

Here is a video I made to help those creeping along the border line of having to take it to a shop to get it installed or do it yourself. This job requires only a few tools and can be done within 2 hours on a slow day. [youtube]gXwS0UsGWMc[/youtube]

This doesn't apply to the 2014's. The lower strut mount has changed and it makes the install a little more difficult. The Subject line for this post should read for the 2009-2013 F-150.

After installing the leveling kit have you noticed a change in the ride? Also did you get an alignment as some others have claimed is necessary? I'm tackling this on Saturday on an 09 F150 SCAB.

14's are ten times harder, did my own on a 13'. Traded for a 14'-had a alignment shop do it and it took them about 4hrs as it was there first one.

Just a bit confused after watching this video... So this can be done without removing the lower shock mount? All of the instructions I've read states to remove the shock from the lower mount but after watching the video it doesn't appear you did that.
