      I didnt need rear camber bolts after lowering. There was enough adjustment in the slot. It aligned to spec.

      That is REALLY lucky! I cannot remember the last time that happened...PLAY THE LOTTO lol.

      I will post it here so that everyone can know too, no offense. The camber bolts are only $30+freight.

      They are our springs. I never said that they will not work either [MENTION=185956]JETZ[/MENTION]. The same lowering kit fits your Limited as well.

      We really have no other option for lowering? Something less aggressive?

      1.6-2" is not aggressive considering the total availabe suspension travel available (whatever it is). What is the point of lowering any less? Unless you want higher spring rates without lowering it. No one makes such springs.

      I just got my flex springs installed on my 2013 Explorer Limited. Looking at pictures on this forums I was confident that it was gonna be the perfect drop. When I went to the local shop to pick up my truck I was shocked at how much lower it looks. First words out of my mouth were "my wife is going to kill me" I honestly think this is too low, does this drop look right to you guys or should I get it checked out?

      in my situation, the rear is lower than the front it looks like. it reverse raked. I am wanting to believe my rear shocks are dead but they only have 40,000km. there is sooo much camber on the rear now.

      Just went to look at mine with h&r ex springs. Its much higher. I am all for low, but this looks too low for this vehicle.

      I agree. It's too low. Definitely eliminates the need for those running boards. Also, since raising the Explorer voids the powertrain warranty, I'm guessing lowering it would too.

      Both options are H&R springs. One is for the Explorer and the other one for the Flex. Both fit the Explorer, with the Flex springs being lower. Since the Flex is not trying to be an SUV.

      You can not void the powertrain warranty by installing springs. If it is determined that whatever damage was caused by the lower ride height or the process of installation, they may deny coverage of that damage. They will not void your warranty nor will they deny coverage for any unrelated powertrain components in the future.

      An owner of an F-150 who had 'raised' his truck ran into an issue with the powertrain and Ford denied any warranty work because they said the 'lifting' voided the warranty. This was carried on the news here some time ago. It was also pointed out that some of these kits carry their own warranty should the manufacturer deny coverage.
