Ditto on the the track bar bracket I did my lift all by myself should of waited for help lots of cussin throwin tools then couldn't find the tool I needed after I threw it then pounded a beer to calm myself. Glad to see a six with 35's im debating on droppin down to 35's when my 37's wear out.

yeah the 35's look like 33's now that its lifted ha but i dont want to put bigger tires on till i work it...if i did a trackbar drop now it would be easy but having never done one on our trucks b4 it was a hell of a learning experience with working in tight spots hah that was harder than the #8 spark plug in my 01 f 150 which unless you have worked on a 97-03 5.4 u wouldnt understand

Those the ones that have the spark plugs that blow out of the head? Guy at work has a F150 not sure what year it's a newer one but he has had the problem twice. He has helicoils in two of them now.
