The amount you have to take off is very little look at #3 on this thread: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/10...kit-is-on.html and you will see how very little and where Frank had to remove material. I bought the adjustable cams and didnt end up using them, the alignment shop had the non adjustable type and we just used them.
Sorry I dont remember where I got the adjustable ones but the alignment shop just had the ones to do the job an I ended up giving them the adjustable ones since I had no use for them. Have you done any grinding on the I-beam and spindle?
The front end shop had 1.5 adjustable, where did you buy yours? The knuckle was still slammed against the ibeam with a ton more to go... Strange that worked for you guys.
I got my dual adjustable camber bushings at NAPA.
I'm Like you. I had to pull my steering knuckles out twice and do some grinding on them both times. First time the alignement shop couldn't get it in alignment even with dual camber bushings installed. second time around it aligned up great. I have the aluminum spacers.

Ok, this kit will not work on my early 99. I adjusted a 2 1/2" camber bushing all the way down and my wheel still needs to come back in atleast 1"+!
this kit will not work without 2" drop brackets which nobody makes...
Maybe because they won't fit and still get it bolted down?...
The I beam or spindle must be different on the early 99 vs. Late 99.5 and up.
If anyone knows if they are different, but compatible, please let me know.
As far as grinding, I maybe had to grind about a 1/8" and the 2 1/2" bushing still did not bottom out.
Wow! I'm not so happy and I really want this to work!
The aluminum leveling kit that many of us have used worked just fine on my e99. The rotors and bearings may be different on the early birds, but I dont think they changed the I beams any.
Mine is a 4/98 truck, so Its def an early bird.
Mine was made in 98 also. The I beam or spindle must have changed at some point.
4" sounds like the route I will take, I guess...
The wheel is still riding on the outside of the tire with this much camber adjustment, which is max and well over 2wd specs
