    question for those that have installed the adjustable rear control arms how did you keep the joint 90deg from the pivot point when tightening the jam nuts?

    ok this is what I needed to see.....upper mounting point for the rear sway bar since my truck didn't come with one. When I crawled under their I thought this was the spot but wanted to be sure.

    small addition to the plan; going to change the color of my stock wheels to a hot rod flat/low gloss black color and then try my hand at spraying them with KBS coatings Maxx in my garage! Fingers crossed!

    Why the f150 shorter sway bar endlinks? Or do they not make shorter end links for the front of our trucks?

    they are not required but from reading/research they put the front sway bar in a better position rather than sticking with the stock end links.......understand this is still second hand knowledge too me.....but I am starting the install this weekend so I'll have first hand info for you soon :favorites13:

    looks like much fun and mine has given me exactly zero issues. Don't ask me tech questions, I have a plethora of shops to do my dirty work. Oh pics when done.
