Yes if you have a suspension warranty claim but if it's engine related warranty issue you could have that still covered but get ready to fight the dealership.My question is about warranty. Does this void any warranty? Can't figure out if I want to modify yet or wait... but its always hard for me to wait to modify haha
Yeah figured as much. Even having them install the kit would not get you free and clear of a claim. Makes me nervous but i want the drop so bad... to hard not to mod... must resist... ahhhhhhYes if you have a suspension warranty claim but if it's engine related warranty issue you could have that still covered but get ready to fight the dealership.
That sounds like fun! Glad to help get that beauty running they way you imagined. These new Explorer Sport models are becoming more popular by the day here in our neck of the woods.I was just like you man, I even bought an extended warranty plan. Thing is I just had the itch so bad and I know if I waited for the warranty to be over then I would no longer care anymore because it would be old news…. So I jumped on the mod bandwagon for the first time ever and OMG I love it. This is exactly what I imagined my beauty would run like. Now I never second guess if I can take the guy next to me at the light, I just punch it to the speed limit and look in my rearview mirrors and get all giddy inside
Keep in mind that if you are planning on getting wheels with an aggressive offset or spacer, you are going to have rubbing issues and will scrape the lower front "lip" in most parking garage's concrete "stops". I'm using the flex springs with 22 inch wheels and spacers and had to modify the quarter panel molding to reduce the rubbing on the back. The truck looks great though!My assessment of the H&R Explorer springs! They install super easy. (2 hours by myself in front of garage) They ride very nice, better than stock. PERSONALLY, the drop wasn't as low as expected! Called H&R and they told me the Explorer Sport will only see a .6" front and 1.3-1.6" rear of a drop. WOW, not what it states on the H&R site. They do not distinguish between base Explorer to Sport models. This information needs to be available on the H&R and/or the Livernois Motorsports site. SO, in lieu of this I will be buying the Flex springs. Frustrating! Just to reinforce though, the Explorer springs from H&R are an excellent product and does lower the Explorer Sport. Because of the already lowered stance of the Sport, it will not be as much as stated on the H&R site.
The spacers i'm using are 25mm rear and 15mm front. The rims have a 38 offset. The front spacers are still in my toolbox due to the studs in the truck being too Long and hitting the back of the rim which doesn't allow it to sit flush against the spacer. I didn't have that problem on the back since the spacers are thicker.Thanks mabupa. I may hold onto the ones I have till I can have a set made for the rear or some coil overs are made. mabupa, what size spacers are you using? What part of Florida are you from? I am in Jacksonville. In August there is a show in Green Cove Springs, The Auto Combine 2014. Wife and Me are going.
I'm thinking of dropping my truck but will I need spacers for a flush look? im already running 22 inch by 9 inch wheels and it looks flush. I can't imagine having them sit wider. do u think ur truck rubs because of the spacers?Keep in mind that if you are planning on getting wheels with an aggressive offset or spacer, you are going to have rubbing issues and will scrape the lower front "lip" in most parking garage's concrete "stops".

I'm single with no kids so most of the time is just me in it and I'm in florida so the roads are pretty good but, it still rubs when I put 3 adults on the back and hit even a small bump on a bridge on the highway. I'm considering trying the explorer specific springs.
Just my 2 cents
