I've recently put a Ford Parts One 2 inch lift and stiffer Moog springs on my 2013 E350 XLT 2wd which ending up lifting the front end +/- 3 inches. I've been trying to get the front end aligned (camber was was originally waaaayyy out). They were able to get it close but it's still 1.6 and 1.9 degrees out (according to the local shop the specified range is -.3 to 1.3 so I guess it's pretty close. The explanation the local shop gave is the following--
The front alignment camber is outside the
> manufacturer specified range. The specified range is -.3 to 1.3 and
> my camber is positive 1.9 right side and 1.6 left side. In addition,
> the caster is lower than the specified range at positive 1.8 right
> side and 2.0 left side. Camber/caster sleeves were installed to get
> the camber/caster this close to the specified range. The
> camber/caster sleeves installed are 2.0. sleeves and higher sleeves
> (2.5 or 3.0 degree) cannot be installed due to no steering knuckle
> to axle clearance.
They also told me that if it was just the 2 inch block lift they could get it aligned but it's the extra +/- 1 inch that's making it impossible.
I've seen many have done a similar front end lift whether with blocks and springs or just springs that have lifted the front end and seemingly many are in the three inch range. Have any of you successfully aligned the front end and, if so, how?
Thanks in advance,
