Dropping a 2004 Ford F-150 2/4

Were installing DJM’s 2X4 Calmax Drop Kit on a new 04 F150

Story & Photo’s by Marshall Spiegel


We hear a lot about Calmax kits and just opening a control arm box showed a tightly packed, impressive, a little like a jewelry box (see photo) Calmax arm inside. The famous twin tube sleeves are standard on the arms and we will also see the exclusive DJM adjustable axle brackets during the install.

The entire 2 X 4 DJM kit is direct bolt on and requires no welding, drilling or modifications. Another plus with this kit is only rear shocks need to be replaced, the front factory struts work great and aren’t changed so you have full factory suspension travel.

We saw a 2.5″ drop in the front and exactly 4″ of drop in the rear when we were done

Installing DJM’s new drop kit for the F150 is relatively straightforward. To see how it’s done we watched technician Billy Cruz of Rapid Transit, San Pedro CA. get the job done. Click on the first image to start the show!
