F150 leveling kit

Asked by Dec 24, 2015 at 10:07 PM about the 2009 Ford F-150 STX

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2009 f150 stx 4.6 v8. I recently purchased a
3" front leveling kit to put on to even it out ( I don't
mind if the back of the truck lowers) I was just
wondering if there was any problems I may come
into? I know I'll need an alignment. Thanks!

I see that you have a Tig torch in your pic, If you can do that then you can install the kit. I'm guessing that it's the spacer that fits on top of the strut assembly. If you feel that you are going to jar the steering for some reason when doing the job unplug the main electrical connector on the rack and pinion to avoid damaging the electronics in it. Have fun playing with your truck.

Leveling kits will require the headlamps to be readjusted. The trucks are designed to be higher in the rear so that when they are loaded they ride more level. Probably will cause no other issue than having the rear sit lower than the front when you haul something heavy.
