Finally after 6 months I got my V8 4x4 Lariat in. Roush 2.0 Coil over kit with Fox shocks in the rear. Stock 18" factory rims / 295-70-18 tires. Rides a lot firmer and not as floaty as it was stock.

Do you know if the front coil overs were adjusted down 5/8” like the manual says to do for ‘21s?

I would check if they adjusted it still, if not it’s possible you got 2.5+ out of the front and could have ride issues from suspension travel. It does look like your front is pretty high. It looks great but just something to think about!

I got 2.5" of lift when I installed Eibach struts. What kind of ride issues are you talking about ?

They took and did a front end alignment after they were finished. I like the ride now better than the floaty factory ride. 70 mph hands off straight down the highway...

Right, I’m just asking because fox specifically says if the adjustment isn’t done you could have issues with your truck. Has nothing to do with alignment or how it feels, it’s a matter of component failure if the instructions aren’t followed by the manufacture. Just trying to prevent future headaches for you.

2021 has suspension changes. If you don’t do the adjustment you’re stressing the front end and limiting travel which will lead to a harsher ride and pre mature failure (per fox). Many have installed without adjustment and went back to fix it. Just trying to help since others weren’t aware and were able to fix.
OP I would measure fender to ground front to back to see how much lift you actually got.

Yes I did measure fender to ground and got 2.75” and after 3months it settled in at 2.50”.
Had it installed at a Ford shop, but I bought the parts. Thanks for the info. It will be a wait and watch for now.

I was worried about this when I had mine installed, I told the guy to make adjustment and he did. I know some shops might be like sure yeah whatever and slap it on. You didn’t add rear blocks did you? Curious what you’re measuring rear and front from ground to fender. I went for 275/70 tires so only gained an inch of height but I also added 2.25 rear blocks.

Good to hear! Would you mind measuring front and back height? Seems some trucks get more than others and I’m curious what yours ended up being without adding blocks. Ground to fender would be best if you’re willing!
