Thank you everyone for the positive feedback. The ride is only slightly more firm than stock. The wheels are 20x8.5 et45 with 255/50. They did not rub before and so far I don't think they are rubbing now. I did have to add a 1/2 spacer above the rear spring seat to get the stance the way I wanted it. The springs the way they came made it perfectly level. 32" ground to fender on all four. So now it's 32 on the front and 32 1/2 in the back.
So if I understand what you wrote, you added a 1/2" spacer on the bottom of the rear spring (on the lower spring perch), to get a slight rake on the truck (the rear a smidge higher than the nose)?

Bro, this is absolute gangster level execution for such a new design. Mad props to you. I'm waiting on the Eibach springs development in order to match vehicle spring rates to the Mav, and your truck just reaffirmed my direction to lower my XLT Hybrid. Again mad props @Canyon Racer

Just finished installing some Escape lowering springs. They lowered about 2 and 2.5. I'll get some daytime pics this weekend. BTW the Escape 14mm camber bolts are also a go.

Update w/ more info:

Do I spy an exhaust tip coming out of the rear bumper?

That's a big tire. 245/45 would of been the same height as the stock tires. Looks great!

That is awesome. Really glad you brought the rear up a touch. Didnt notice if it was AWD. But that would be really baddass especially if it had a air assist to bring it back up for rougher road and areas.

Otherwise, that is a very sweet stance. Really good look you got there.

Omg. LOVE! Please please please post more info! Where you bought the stuff from. Links? Description? Any extra mods to make these work aside from the spacers. It looks so legit. I assume the spacers are optional if you want a level drop?

Yeah can you post the part numbers of all the items used to do this. I just sent my paperwork in to order my CG XLT maverick and I plan on using my existing wheels on my Edge ST for my maverick. 20x8.5 40 offset TSW Ascents seen in the picture I attached. And this lowering would just make it look perfect with my wheels.

Also did you have to, or elect to get the alignment redone?

Oh and more pics please, in the daylight!
