If you try to lower F150 with springs you get trouble, if you heat or cut your springs, even if you use a "lowering" spring you cause alignment issues you just can't correct out! That's why we made DreamBeams! Our exclusive tubular construction is the most accurate lowering beam anywhere. We use thick walled DOM tubing, nested, welded in the fixture giving you full alignment adjustment. The fabricated "I-beam" type parts suffer from "weld creep" as they are welded, which simply means they warp a little. That makes it hard to get consistent finished parts! You only need to remove the factory beams and replace with DreamBeams and you have a 3" drop with the factory coils, full suspension travel and all the goodness that comes with that.
A 3/5 kit will give you a “level” stance most of the time. We use the term level advisedly. Level is different things to different people and you get different results on different trucks but you have the maximum drop with out serious custom work.
The 3″ DreamBeams in the front and a simple rear axle leaf spring flip kit nets out a 5″ drop in the rear. Just a few parts and a lot of result will get you a long ways on your F-150 make over!
Johnny Cash wrote a song about collecting a bunch of good working parts that were not designed to work together and found it doesn’t always end well! Don’t believe me, click up there! (Turn up your speakers) You can build a radical engine by combining parts made by different manufactures but you really have […]
What are Dreambeams? Ford I-Beam trucks have a much different suspension than most other trucks. Spindles are non-existent for lowering, using lowered coil springs cause more alignment problems than you can solve. Then we built Dream Beams. Twin I-Beams In 1965 Ford introduced their “Twin I Beam” suspension, a simple, rugged suspension consisting of a pair […]
The first thing to get off the table regarding “flip kits” is nothing is actually flipped! Simply put a flip kit moves the axle from beneath the leaf spring to on top of the leaf spring. The devil is in the details here and how its done is very important. When you place your axle […]
