Aloha, I am researching the 2" front leveling kits for a FX4. Anybody have suggestions or have tried different kits?
Ah sweet! What kit did he bring?
I've considered the Autospring FORD F-150 2"LEVELING/LIFT KIT W/ ADD-A-LEAF
I actually got the autospring 2" lift/level kit. It is suppose to bring the front up 2" and the rear up 1 1/2". It takes some of the rake out but not all of it so it won't sag in the rear with a little load.

The installation was fairly straight forward and easy, i did it all myself in a little under 4 hours. The hardest part was joining the upper control arm and spindle on re-assembly. I ended up using a ratchet strap to pull them together enough in order to get the nut started, other than that it was easy.Look good! How hard was the installation? Any special tools needed?
The ride quality is exactly the same as stock on mine. It's a strut spacer so you’re not messing with the spring rate there for keeps the factory ride. As far as the warranty, i wouldn’t think so BUT you can never tell with Ford.......how is the ride quality after you put a leveling kit on your truck?? change, and does it effect your warranty?
I went with an AutoSpring 1 1/2" lift/level. It actually lifted the front 2" and the rear 1 1/4" this way i maintain a little rear to front rake. When i throw the 4-wheeler in the bed of the truck it sits perfectly level, no sag in the rear.Mattwayne07,
what brand of lift did you use on your truck?
The main reason i chose blocks over the add-a-leaf is the ride quality un-loaded. I've had add-a-leafs on a past truck and they really stiffened up the ride when the truck was not loaded. If i need the extra load capacity i'll go with a air helper bag setup that can be adjusted depending the load.Hey Matt, I was curious why you went with 3" blocks in the back over the autospring add-a-leaf?
How much stiffer was the ride with add-a-leafs? My old truck was a F-250 gas and the ride was a lot stiffer than my new F-150. Will it be like my old F-250 ride?The main reason i chose blocks over the add-a-leaf is the ride quality un-loaded.
