Special Thanks to the Forum...

Hello All
Been lurking around here, not saying much. But thanks to this forum, and a few of you out there, I found what I was looking for.
I've wanted to lower my '11 Lariat 4x4 since I bought it, but was having a hard time finding a place to get the work done. I don't have a spring compressor, and was worried about the shaft alignment/ vibration. I wanted to get it done at a dealer, as I was concerned about my $50k investment having issues. My dealer acted like I was a leper when I even brought it up.
Thanks to guys like TRUKNUT and others here, I found Blackstock Ford in Orangeville. Great, great guys. Excellent service and parts guys, who bent over backwards to help me out.
I went with a mild 2/3 drop, as I didn't want to do a flip on the backend, or get into new spindles up front. Used a Belltech setup, with Street Performance struts and shocks, along with lowering shackles. I can't believe how good it turned out. The height is close to were I wanted, with it still looking like a truck. And it is perfectly smooth up to 160kph. A perfect installation, and I'll drive up to have my truck worked on there from now on. All I need are my 23" rims in the summer, and I'm set!
So thanks for the help here- appreciate it.
I'd post pics, but see I'm not allowed to...
