Jeez, this awful post made me go back and check and I was off a few weeks. Re-reading the post and all I can picture is the French taunter from Monty Python.
-Lightning was actually 5 months with Mar. ‘22 build and Aug. ‘22 deliver.
-F150 and the 3 Mavericks were all Sept ‘22 build with Jan &...
I am glad there is a dealer parking lot full of fleet trucks, as that is a good indicator that production is cranking along better than it had been in the past. That photo of all those Mavericks should make people happy to see it.
It’s common knowledge that the hybrid trucks are just going to...
No, I mentioned that I understand your point and it seems like you really need your truck. Ford doesn’t really want angry customers that are pissed because they can’t yet give their money to them and start wearing out their new vehicles that will need to be maintained/repaired/replaced.
Come to think of it, maybe your dealer or order spec is holding up your build?
I ordered a Ford Lightning, a ‘23 F150 and 3 Ecoboost Mavericks over the past twelve months and each of them came in within 3-4 months of placing the orders.
I understand your point, but these large fleet customers need their vehicles badly. I know of one large fleet that buys 200 Ford trucks every month and have done this for a long, long time - due to supply chain and pandemic, Ford had been allocating them only 14 per month even as late as January...
Curious what you think of the springs once installed - I’m enjoying having the extra clearance. The ride with the new springs and larger tires makes it feel and ride like a mini F150 instead of a car and I love it.
No argument on that - what I was trying to get across is that you CAN install them as a locking tab washer (in blue) hooked over the edge of the lower strut mount To keep them from rotating once torqued. Especially when sitting there wondering where your instructions are.
Tab angled away from strut meaning ‘sticking out’. You can also install it angled in almost like a locking washer. If you get what I’m getting at - but once you see the instructions it pretty freaking clear.
Thanks again for that link.
Now it’s simple - exactly what I’ve been searching for!
Thanks much for linking install instructions @NoVaJimmy
If link is dead down the road:
-Upper bolt hole
-Tabbed washer at the bolt head
-Tab angled away from strut and 180° from cam lobe
Not sure why photos are needed MavMan?
Just hoping to confirm in which order and location these camber adjusting bolts get installed. Seems really straight forward except that they fit in both locations and can go together in either order and orientation.
