The easiest and safest way to level out the truck is a an add a leaf leveling kit form Rough Country. JC WHitney sells them for about $100.00 I have used them on 4 trucks.

You may have to adjust your camber once it is completed.

fordman1090 is starting off with a positive reputation.
the ttb front is perfectly fine for casual off roading. They are actually pretty good for sand, and going fast on rough roads and jumping. But they often fail when they have lockers and big tires and get into a bind.

And keeping them in alignment is another common problem. But i think that has more to do with the shop not doing a full alignment, including the camber adjustment.

how could i tell?
thanks.
one other newbie question.TTB stands for?
NO. Not posi.Ford calls it limited slip. I do not believe ford offered a front axle w limited slip since the 70's

The tag on the axle w say if it is limited slip or not. On the tag right at the bolt it will say
3.54(open diff)
3L54(limited slip
3.72(open diff)
3L72 (LS)
4.09(open diff)
4L09(LS)
Usually the first number is covered w the head of the bolt

i was really hoping the front would be LS.bummer.
confirmed by jacking it up/locking in both hubs like suggested and saw the wheels spun in opposite directions while spinning one wheel.
