    Here is the hardware in place. I ended up welding the three plates in place vs supplied screws. That and the grade 8 hardware provided by KHC make it a great kit. Plates for the lower control arms to lock the LCA in place and reinforce up the arm.

    Looks great what upper controls arms did you go with? And do you notice any difference driving the truck or no

    I have Icon Delta Joints. I got the LCA locked, through on the Deltas, and installed Eibachs all at the same time. Completely different feel from stock. Nice and smooth, and certainly noticeable. You want to make sure your front end is taken care of first (if you're planning on doing the rear suspension as well) unless you're doing front and rear at the same time and doing the LCA Lock, new UCA and eibachs is a solid way to go!

    Hey sorry to jump in on this post, which isn’t on the heading but in regard to several of the most recent replies.
    So I have to Eibachs which we’re getting installed until this lockdown happened, so postponed. I am wanting to put 37’s but don’t know about spending the $5k on the rear now doing RPG stage 3 or 4. in the meantime could I do the Eibachs and a new upper control arms then just do a three inch block instead of the two inch in the rear for now?
    This YouTube video from Wild Willies Ford named 2019 Ford Performance Raptor Before and After.....
    did just that block swap on theirs. I don’t see how there could be any difference in performance or whatever some may say just for swapping a three inch for a four inch, still considering I do not Baja race and jump right now. Would this be okay for 37” tires? I don’t see how their video shows it and would sell it new coming from a dealership if they didn’t fit well enough.

    I meant to say at the bottom of that last post like the video says, swapping the stock two inch block for a three inch block.
