We head down to Mod Auto to install a leveling kit on a new Ford F150
2015+ Ford F150 (2004-2014 very similar)
FORD F150 LEVELING KIT INSTALL TRANSCRIPT
Hi folks, Tim here Supreme Suspensions.
For over thirty years, the Ford F-series has been the best-selling vehicle line in North America, and by a pretty good stretch. For 2015, the F150 was redesigned with a beefed up chassis and an all-aluminum body, which is a first in the full-size pickup truck market.
We have such a model with us today, fresh out of the showroom, powered by a 2.7 liter Eco Boost V6. While that may seem small for a full-size pickup truck, what it lacks in displacement it picks up in a couple turbo chargers to pump up 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque.
We really like this new F-150 for its versatility, its efficiency, and it’s very comfortable. We are a suspensions company and we think it sits a little bit low in the front, so we’re going to take it over to our friends at Mod Auto in La Habra, CA to install a Supreme Suspensions front leveling kit.
Let’s head into the shop!
2015 FORD F150 LEVELING KIT INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
Once you get the truck in the air, drop the front wheels.
Start by pulling the brake line and abs wiring brackets from the steering knuckle so you’ll have some slack later.
Then remove the outer tie rod nut.
Disconnect the sway bar link.
Remove the upper ball joint nut. If you have to persuade the ball joint loose, make sure you hit the side and not the threads.
Remove the lover strut mounting bolts. Earlier models may have a single bolt through the lower bushing.
Undo the three nuts from the top of the strut tower. They can be a little tricky to get at.
Now you can wiggle the strut lose. On the bench, install the spacer on top of the strut and attach it with the provided nuts.
From here, installation is reverse of the removal.
Alright we pulled the truck back the folks over at Mod Auto did a great job installing it and very accommodating to us. We are very happy with the way it turned out. It’s nice and level, it’s looking mean, and I can’t wait to go play with it!
