Question: Removing a lift

My Ford has a 4" lift kit on it along with 31.5" tires. I am thinking of having the truck returned to stock height. What sort of problems, if any, might I encounter after the return to normal process? Any and all info is appreciated.

You're more likely to have problems with the lift kit on there, I think removing it will ease some headaches and worn parts. Just make sure you have the work done by someone who is familiar with the stock parts and nothing gets overlooked.

You can usually find an owner with direct experience with that in the forums. Try googling '06 f150 forum' and search their posts.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
