I thought these were going to be pretty easy to install. I've got the truck in the air, rear bolt out, front 2 bolts loosened up. Radius arm where it meets the frame won't drop all but an inch or 2 out. Am i doing it wrong? I'm only working one side at a time.

Got both down. Now it seems like the 2 holes in the factory bracket don't line up with the ones in the PMF brackets....argh! I Called Trevor and he said i need to drill holes. He doesn't have any pictures. I have no clue where to go at this point.

I took pictures of what i'm working with. Maybe i have the bracket installed wrong? It doesn't seem to be sitting flush in the "pocket". One of the holes in the factory bracket is half lined up with the PMF bracket.

The bracket is in the right way, I dont know why it wont line up for you, did you try tapping it that a hammer? Mine were tight too, I installed the front bolt in and then tapped up on the rear and it went right in.

That I dont know...You have an 2008 SD? What brand lift kit did you get?
Its mismatched.

Icon dual stabilizer kit
Icon adjustable track bar
Bds bottom spacer leveling kit w/ cams (2")
7000lb Ford coil springs
PMF 1.5" Top coil spring spacer.

Did it this way to get it level, and because i hang a 9ft plow off the front.

Truck is a 2006 f350 fx4.
