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.
I finished the lowering of my truck and I think it worked out great only thing is that no one has the software to do a front end alignment , even Ford so I thought I would put that out there . Thanks for all your inspiration though because Im happy the way mine turned out .

By far the back is easier. The stock front springs require spring compressors to remove them from the struts.

Thanks for that. When my truck finally arrives, I'm going to try it myself. I just need to figure out what I can add for spacers in back like yours. Also your truck looks great.

Does anyone know the spring rate of both the factory rear spring and the escape lowering spring. Was wondering how much these would affect payload vs waiting for dedicated maverick springs.

JJC has made some routed spacers. Mine are crude and not nicely finished but they are made from the same material. High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) I used 2 different hole saws.

I never posted any pics here of the updated spacers I used, so here's a couple. CNC'd HDPE. They go in between the upper insulator and body to add just a bit of height to the rear.

If anyone needs rear shims/spacers just let me know. I can get them in either 1/4" or 3/8" material. Due to the suspension geometry, the actual lift will vary from the actual material thickness. The 3/8" I used got me almost 1/2" of lift.

If you have a spare cutting board, you could just use that as well. That's what got me by until I had these made

I don't know what the spring rates are but they seem plenty stiff enough for regular loads. I added Air Lift bags to the rear springs Link and put the schrader valve in the driver side cubby. I keep a mini bicycle pump under the back seat. It only takes a couple of pumps to get it to 20 or 30 psi.
