I just bought a 02 ford lightning. 24k miles on it. i love it. just put magnaflow exhaust and K&N cold air kit on. feel free to hit me up with ideas. need to know what is the best way to lower this truck. i want to do it right. $ is not an option. than
This is the best way I've seen and I've done the back half of it on mine already....
...on a 2002 all you need is 2" rear shackles to level out the bed if you're leaving the front stock, or 3" rear shackles if you are going to lower the front 2". If you want to lower the front 2" all you need is to cut one complete coil off of the stock springs and put them back in. You will need cam-bolt adjusters on the front lower a-arms to align the camber back perfect, or some people just leave it alone. It's a good idea to remove or trim the front bump stops, and to trim the rears after doing this, as well as getting shorter end links for both the front an rear sway bars. You want them as level as possible. Not a HUGE deal though, just makes things right. Have fun and good luck!! Brandon K
