This is the SUPERLIFT Level-It 2 inch Leveling Kit for the 1997-2003 Ford F-150 4WD. This Leveling Kit will enhance the appearance of your Ford F-150 by leveling the front with the rear of your Ford F-150 pickup.

Superlift's Level-It lift systems are the perfect solution for anyone wanting an economical and easy way to eliminate the factory nose-down rake on virtually all late-model trucks and SUVs. Whether it's simply leveling the truck's stance, making the room to go up a couple of tire sizes, or plus-sizing the tire and wheel package on the vehicle, Level-It components work with factory suspension components to achieve modest ride height gains Super-EZ install.

The 1997-2003 Ford F-150 4WD is equipped with an Independent Front Suspension (IFS) with torsion bars. Front tires attach to steering knuckles. The knuckles pivot on ball joints attach to upper & lower control arms. The upper & lower control arms position the knuckles front-to-back & side-to-side. The ‘spring’ of the suspension is a torsion bar. The front of the torsion bar attaches to the lower control arm and rear attaches at a rear frame crossmember. This crossmember houses the adjuster or torsion keys.

The torsion bars have a tremendous pre-load or ‘twist’ in them. The torsion bars are what determine the ride height of the suspension. These torsion bars have a certain amount of adjustment built into the factory system. Torsion bar keys have hex-cut (or splined) holes that mate to the rear ends of the torsion bars. This adjustment takes place via a bolt that indexes on a torsion key attached to each torsion bar. Simply ‘cranking up’ the factory system is not the right way to go about gaining minor amounts of lift due to a number of factors.

SUPERLIFT Level-It keys are improved direct replacements for the 1997-2003 Ford F-150 4WD factory keys. Our #40005 Level-It keys are indexed differently to increase bar rotation and lift (the center hex where the torsion bar mounts are re-indexed or rotated). As the new keys are loaded, they apply torsional load to the bars which in turn lifts the vehicle greater than that of the stock torsion keys. Ours are also designed to grab the ‘flat’ hex portion of the torsion bar for a more precise, tighter fit.

SUPERLIFT’S heavy-duty forged-steel construction torsion keys are 25% stronger than OEM keys.

Provided 1.5 inches to 2.5 inches of adjustable lift height.

Hardware is supplied to prevent ‘over-cranking’ the torsion bars.

Ideal for restoring height lost from heavy front bumper, winch/bumper combo or snow-plow.

This SUPERLIFT system is designed for the 1997-2003 Ford F-150 4WD owners looking to gain more ground clearance, wheel travel flexibility and a taller than factory stance. Our #40005 addresses all of your lift kit needs in terms of product quality, durability, craftsmanship, and price. It includes everything you need to lift your Ford F-150.

  • Front: Torsion keys (2); supplied hardware
  • Rear: None

NOTE: Special torsion bar puller tool is required to load/unload torsion bars. The puller tool is available for purchase or rental from most major automotive part stores.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: The provided tire/wheel fitments are approximate. Actual dimensions of a given tire size can vary considerably from one brand to another. Manufacturers' wheel offset and backspacing measurement points are not always consistent. Backspacing greatly impacts tire-to-fender clearance when turning. Wheel width and backspacing influence whether the tires protrude past the fenders, and to what extent. Considering these important factors, we recommend that you fit-check your tire/wheel selection prior to purchasing.

  • Installation time: 3 hours

Excellent customer service. Carrier delivered to wrong address and could not be found immediately. Because it was a Xmas present for my grandson, Superlift shipped another immediately. Great company
