it was for a 78f250... but its the same price for the coils cause i got a 96 f150 now and i askd about the coils... they seemd pretty good and its a brand new leaf pack too right soo no blocks or rearcd stiffness..[cheers]

haha no worries man so the spacers are for a 96 f150? i have heard that 2 inches is the max that you can go without putting the alignment right out this is without the ttb drop brackets so if you have 6 inches now then you should be able to put 2 inch spacers in with no problems

to clearify this for him since hes not its for his 96 F150 its got a 6" lift with drop brackets and he was woundering if he could put a adisunal (its spelled wrong i know) 2" coil spacer in the front.

and also brandon if your looking at 78 F150 coils they are different then yours they look the same but there different mounting on the axle.

its a fullsize thing! jeep owners just wont understand :p

if you are going to adjust the height of it go and get an alignment afterwards...see if they can get it all straight..

well why can't they do it? where do you live? i know a guy in abbotsford that could take care of it i am pretty sure....place is called Acombine...heard of it?

for cars we use something called caster/camber plates that give you more adjustability

hey!
Heres my 2 cents....The six inch kit has the same drop brakets as the 4 inch kits.....Just lower mounting holes for the chicken wings......alignment is alwasys a compromise with the ttb and lift....Ir you add the spacers your asking for extra tire wear and possibly funnier handling.....even with the max degree alignment cams it will be problematic.......good luck

well if you wanna go to Acombine i suggest going there...go in and ask for Robin (he is the tire guy there) and tell him Craig the mustang guy told you to come there and he will set you up with this other guy there and he will see what he can do..just tell him you have it lifted and nobody else and get it perfect and see if you can do what you gotta do to get it proper...

You can do it yourself, just use a carpenters square to get the camber as close as you can, then a tape measure to set the toe. As far as tire wear its the toe that wears tires, camber causing tire wear is so minimal its not an problem. If you still having trouble come by Canadian Tire in Po Co and talk to me Bob.

hey[f]
It doesnt matter who you get to try to align the 6" kit plus 2"
spacer...it wont align...sorry to say....as far as caster camber toe.....Caster is required for many reasons...one of witch is to return your wheel to centre....excessive camber will wear tires,which is what you will have if you add the extra spacer........as will more than about a quarter inch of toe.....
good luck
