      The Sport sits about one inch lower than any other trim.

      I finally got the H&R springs and BORA 3/4" spacers put on. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics.

      Does it change the ride quality all that much?

      Do these springs or any lowering kit help with the leveling?

      I know they have leveling kits for F150s...but do they do Explorers?

      I love the look of my sport..the only gripe is the leveling difference from the rear to front with the front sitting a bit lower

      Sharp ride! Very nice touch with the springs and wheel spacers together. Love the look of these XSports when lowered.

      Let us know if there is anything we can do to help unleash that untapped EcoBoost potential under the hood. A good tune and some bolt ons make one incredibly fun ride. Also helps gain some MPG at the same time. Win win situation across the board.

      Remember, the only thing you have to fear, is fear itself ;)

      Honestly, we understand the worry behind modifying a vehicle under warranty, but with our track record, we just haven't had any issues with customers getting service. More importantly, most of the failures people tend to see are when the things are bone stock, while the modified vehicles seem to have better reliability. We aren't saying that the added performance is making them more durable, but the failure rate is pretty much non existent with our modifications.

      The owner's XSport is lowered with this same kit and he drives it all year round without issue! The truck handles like it is on rails!

      I am worried about the massive frost heaves that we get and potholes that could eat a small child that don't get fixed for months

      Trust me, I have lived all over the country, and have traveled to several countries...NO PLACE has potholes like metro Detroit! We get tons of the white stuff as well. I personally would not be overly concerned about lowering your XSport. If a lowered truck can live here, it can make it ANYWHERE lol.
