Hello my fellow F-150'ers!
My first time post! A lot of good info on this site!! I am a huge Ford F-150 enthusiast! I have owned a new F-150 since 1995.Every three years or so I have upgraded to newer models! Until last year I finally got a chance at my dream truck! I took the plunge into a 2012 Harly-Davidson with the 6.2L engine! OMG! Whatatruck! It is so tight and fast! It seems like , that all it wants to do is go fast! Very powerful engine and not giving up any of the tightness that I have come to know and love about Ford trucks! Feels like a luxury or sport model with very responsive steering,power and braking!
Well ! I decided to do some upgrades to it ,like it needed it
I have always wanted to put bigger tires and small lift kit! I found out it is very difficult to find an all terrain tire that come in 22 inch rim size, without have to do a levelling kit. So anyways I got her done today
I put a 2 and 1/2 Rancho quick lift levelling kit, New 22inch Fuel machined Maverick rims and 35 inch Toyo Open Country AT2 Extreme Tires!
Oh and BTW, I also will be upgrading to new Borla Headers and S-type performance exhaust in a couple of weeks!
I friggin love it!! What a dream truck it is now! Looks great!
Here is my issue and question! Have any you offroaders or semi offroaders every have a lift kit and bigger tires, experience the change in steering performance?
The truck seems to have a little more slack and play in the steering.Any suggestion to remedy this would be greatly appreciated!It is my feeling that the ride would have changed for sure with bigger and wider tires but not to what I am feeling on it!! Please don't get me wrong! I love this truck!I will post a pic through my iPhone to share in my happiness!
Is there a solution or is it something that I have to suck up and live with??
Here is a sample of the exhaust set up I am aiming for! Enjoy!
