Installed new ceramic brake pads front and rear. The old ones were really thin up front and had some cracks. The rear had more friction material but the shim on each outside pad was loose. Amazing I didn't have any noise.
While the tires were off I put some rust converter on all rusty areas like the caliper and spindle. After it dried, I sprayed it with some black paint. I'll get around to undercoat everything later.

Default What did you do to your raptor today?
Over the last week I have gone to mid perch which went pretty smooth in the driveway with hand tools. Used the RPG method from the video. One set screw needed to be drilled out, a little scary drilling into the side of the shock. I just went slow and tapped on the perch until it moved, not too big of a deal.

Purchased Deaver +3's for an awesome price off Craigslist. Also bought RPG bump stop striker plates to install with the springs from Walter @aftermarketheadquarters. Picked up the front spring to frame bolt from Ford so I could cut the bolt next to the fuel tank. Passenger could be cut also but, dropping the exhaust on the passenger side works.

Today I installed the springs with the help of my son, a friend and the lift at my friends shop. Made it easy and only took a little over 2 hours. Also installed RPG bump stop striker plates with the springs for that future upgrade.

I've only driven about 15 miles. Everything feels great. No vibrations. Will check torque after a few hundred miles. Also need to have alignment cams installed and alignment checked soon.

Here you go. Just after installation, rear measures slightly under 2" of lift.

Installed a new tailgate emblem... The dealer had a foil backed sticker on the tailgate that was a PITA to remove... The clear looked a little cloudy so I decided to simply cover it.

Installed a 20 Baja Designs ONX6 Hi Power. Literally turns night into day. I am in awe at how much light it puts out. Now off to bandage up my cuts and ice my bruises because that thing was a bitch putting in lol.

These came in today. Going to change the front up a tad. Leaving the rear alone.
