Default 2014 Screw Eco-sport truck built

Hi guys kinda new to this forums/ my first post just letting you guys see what's here in hawaii being built. I bought my truck back in May 2014. At first I wanted a 2014 f150 6.2L Crew cab instead of the ecoboost. Was planning on superchagering it. But the power you can bring out of the ecoboost for the $$$ is unbelievable worth it.

So far I have done some mods towards it
-Front KW Belltech coil over kit about 3inch drop
-McGaughy 4in rear flip drop w/Belltech SP shocks
-hellwig RSB
-custom DIY front sway bar end links
-SCT tuner with 91 performance tune
(custom tune from SSI )
-K&N CAI
-afe bladerunner charge pipe
-170 thermostat
-oil catch can
-MBRP SS off road down pipe 3in
-3in Magna flow muffler with custom lighting style exit using 2oem muffler tips
- D3S 8k hids
-55watt 8k hids fogs
-led front parking/turn/rear break and turn
-projector LEds reverse light.
-recon led smoke 3rd brake light
-interior LEds
- front bumper/ intercooler grill mod custom deleted the 2 front vertical plastic pieces with body work and painted.
-side mirror turn signal led mod smoked
-side mirror puddle led mod
-20%tint front and rear
-blacked out ford emblems
-stubby antenna
-FX2 decal removed
- depo boost guage and areoforce guage with dual a-pillar guage pods.
-bedcover
- alpha horns


I think that all the mods I can think of as of now. Will post pics also.

So glad I found this. I have a '14 FX2 lowered 2/4 and I am having front away bar end link issues. What did you do to yours? It says custom. Also how is the rear sway bar? Worth the $$?

Lol I am glad you found this also not much guys with lowered f150 it seems lol hope I can help you with anything. What kind of issues are you having with the front sway bar end links? I didn't really have problems with mines just I custom it so it more of a one piece. To me the rear sway bar really made a big difference. The rear seem more planted while taking a corner with less body roll

That's how my front sway bar end link setup look from Energy suspension. There is no part number/ Application for our truck. Kinda bought a set and try to put it on?

It seems that the lower control arms (DJM) have the hole for the bottom of the end link in a different location than stock. The end link is no longer vertical, but tilted on an angle. Then each end is angled in the opposite direction. Basically it looks like a Z. I thought about cutting them in half and offsetting the top from the bottom (welding them back together with additional metal support). Now I think my ball joints are shot. Taking it to the shop on Friday.

Do you know which end link you bought? Or did you get one based on length? Is it stronger than stock?

How did you lower the front with the coil overs? I thought that could not be done at least without changing some other parts.

Actually I bought pen 2013 low control arms to fit the coil overs because they didn't have any coil overs for 2014 due to the change of the mounting of the strut. But if I am not mistaken the sway bar end link was the same as 2013/2014. Also not to sure how a DJM LCA looks like also.

Due to my issues with the front end, I might end up doing what you did. If you would be so gracious, can you please tell me what I would need to buy to use the coil overs? Is it just the stock lower control arms from a 2013 and the coil overs? Anything else?
