    Wanted: Coil Spring Measurements When Installed (Stock & Lifted)

    People have reported 3-1/2 to 4-inches of lift from stock F150 coils. I wonder if you would get 5-6 inches of lift with a 2-inch F150 leveling coil?

    Well that's interesting..... Can someone with a James Duff lift measure their springs and post the results?

    Question on Skyjacker 2" Leveling Springs

    I think you need to find a different alignment shop. They'll replace that upper camber bushing with a new one to get it back where it needs to be.

    @85_Ranger4x4 Thanks! I like that those diagrams also include the years. Do you have any for the consoles used in other years? Have any more pics @RobbieD I want to incorporate this information in to: https://www.therangerstation.com/tech/a-guide-to-center-consoles/

    I have never seen a console like that before. The front part looks like the Bronco II console, but never saw one like that with a sliding opening. I need to get more photos of these.
