    If you mean 25% (Two gage shims are provided; one for setting to 25% and another for 40%) I am estimating probably around an inch. The Raptor takes a different part number than the regular F-150s. It is a standard duty.

    Did you do the install yourself? If so, how difficult was it?

    Install is very simple, maybe an hour

    So is this RAS a more modular alternative to putting Icons or Deavers in?

    They just got delivered so I test fitted them. Looks like the RAS spring will hit the bracket on the leaf spring that I circled in yellow. Did you have this problem? 2DA91F07-4CCF-4163-BFAA-E5101BC0436B.jpeg 74C1E8E7-99F7-4C0C-9EE9-0394AEC4F8A2.jpeg

    Ordered mine too and will have it installed in a few weeks - will report back how it does on stock springs... I went this route + RPG collars because it'll level the truck and make it more capable as opposed to spending 2200+ on deavers & geisers (just yet).

    Now what i am wondering is if this will at all allow a higher load in the bed, over the 1000lbs rated payload...

    Mine touches, the bushing is not indented or damaged. I just checked both sides. It's not a problem

    the kit comes with 2 spacers, one is a payload increase of 25% and the other is an increase of 40% payload capacity, per Roadmaster

    Does it touch while you're truck is sitting level? If so, isn't it going to hit quite a bit more as the suspension compresses if you hit a big bump?
