    Does this mod affect the alignment? Do I need to have it realigned afterwards? Nice mod though, I like the stance much better leveled.

    Yes you will need to have the truck Aligned after the perch mod is done, had mine done at KHC's last open house, and the truck is still spot on.

    It stiffen's the front end a little more, but nothing bad, gets rid of that floaty felling, a lot less nose dive under braking, all around better feel, and looks 100% better.

    Definitely worth it. I drove this truck a few hundred miles home when I bought it but after the perch mod at KHC, I loved it even more. I've driven a Lifted F150 for quite a few years and it always sat even, no "lowered" front end.

    Agreed man! I'll be at KHC....hopefully meet quite a few of you.

    Yup that's how most of Bergen and Hudson County by me is now thanks to all the salt/snow and plows.

    I'll probably see you guys/gals over at KHC. I'm in SE Pa and am heading over to Zook's next week to pick up my blue screw. They are doing the mid-perch there so I will never know how it drives with out one. The Flame Blue looks great in your pics. It's a hard color to capture in pics.
