I had to seriously pry the lower control arms to get the VC topo lift installed over the lower ball joints. Spacer/Bilsteins/Red Springs/knuckle. This was with the rear subframe loosened as well.Any other people who installed their lift by themselves, I’d love to hear of your experience.
I don't get why the VC spacer doesn't have longer threaded studs. The top nuts only have about 90% engagement. Also, it seems reusing all the nuts/bolts Ford says are single use is OK with everyone.
