Question type: Car Customization

I was wondering how big of a lift can I go on my 1989 F150 XLT Larriet before i need to lower the trans. Also how can I get more power out of my 302 V8?

hello my Redneck friend, the question is not how big can you go before you have to lower or tilt the trans, the question is how big can you go before you have to get special parts. speical parts such as rockwell axles or drop box style transfercases. This is because of driveline angles and making your driveshaft last. A 6" lift kit can be bought from many offroad companies and can be rather affordable, it should allow you to clear up to 35" of rubber. if also going to bigger tire size you will need to change your gears to match. A 10" lift can be done but it's recomended to get high angle drve shafts. And any kit bigger than 2" should come with new mounts for the beams As for powering up the 302, headers and exhaust can be done cheaply, and for a few good extra Hp and trq you should check out getting a HO intake for/from a mustang. A full msd ignition system replace and some e3 plugs will give ya a better bang in the cylinders and certain ones are tunable. Good luck Joe
