Has anyone figured out what leveling kits work on the tremor? Will standard F-150 parts fit? Removing some of that rake will be my goal as soon as possible when I take delivery of my truck. I am looking to go the easy route with a 1.5” or 2” spacer kit on the struts. I don’t want to remove the rake completely, but from the pictures the way Ford is sending this out from the factory makes it look like they forgot to install the 1” lift parts on the Tremor with 3-4” of rake.

If you know what fits please let me know!
Thanks
 
Tagging in on this. Is the rake really that bad? I have yet to see one of these in person. I was hoping there wouldn’t be enough to need a leveling kit.
 
Other thread with LF Tremor has it at 4”. I’d call that bad.
 
Copied from another thread to confirm the 4” rake.

Tremor (33” Tires Stock)
Front - ~38.5”
Back - ~42.5”

sounds like a 2” leveling kit would be right in the sweet spot of bringing it up when unloaded and leaving enough rake for when it is loaded.
 
Any thoughts on how a spacer kit would affect ride quality? Would it cause anything to wear out more quickly than normal?

Have to verify a spacer kit will work due to the unique suspension , the spacers may interfere with the position specific dampeners. The dealership here is in contact with Roush to determine proper equipment for a 2” level or 4” lift for 35’s. I am suspecting that both will require a full kit.

I find it interesting that the Tremor shares some of the same off-road technology found in the Bronco such as Trail Control and Train Turn Assist


I am getting ready to watch some videos on lifting a Bronco and wonder if there are some shared suspension elements.

I’ll be Interested to know if a spacer kit will work. It’s a pretty cheap alternative to a new suspension. Especially considering that part of the incentive to buy the Tremor was the upgraded suspension. Also why I’ma little surprised that it has the amount of rake that it does from the factory.
 
I really hope the spacer kit is an option. Especially with the way Ford is sending this truck raked out from the factory, they nailed the ride height look with the Raptor and SD Tremor. I was hoping the Tremor F150 would more closely match what they did on those trucks.

Same here. I know a guy with an F250 Tremor and it sits perfect. I didn’t really think that they would throw a gigantic rake on the F150. A little disappointing to say the least.
 
It may still work out, just not optimally. I am thinking I want just a 2” lift on the front as well. However, if I need to do an entire kit, I may opt for 4” and 35’s.
 
Oh, I put the truck in 4 low with the camera this evening to see it - I like that the monitor shows how the wheel is tracking. Handy camera to have when your nose up on a trail negotiating rough terrain.

I’ll try to get in there later for better photos of the front:

A spacer puts stress on the shock mounts when using the full travel of the suspension. So if you are building a mall crawler, it would be ok. I'm hoping the factory suspension will be compatible with a +2.5" spring replacement like the Raptor and not need an entirely new coilovers. Time will tell as manufactures start making options.

Even the Raptor needs a nose lift. I have a perch collar on my Raptor now, but as I said above, I would prefer an entire spring replacement to get rid of the pre-load.

Is that a big savings on equipment with just replacing the spring? I like the sound of this option rather than a spacer.

Springs are about the same cost as a quality spacer (~$300).

Here are the Raptor ones as an example:

Seriously hoping Eibach makes a spring only for the Tremor too. I know they do not for a normal 2021 F-150, it requires an entire strut replacement, which I don't want to have to do. As long as the factory coilovers can handle it, my bet is it will be very close if not the same part as the Raptor because they are tuned for engine weight and both run the 3.5 EcoBoost.

Wow, I really hope this is an option when we learn more. I’ve been trying to find the specs on the suspension through the Ford parts website with part numbers — no luck so far. I may call down to a dealership parts department for help.
 
I swung by the dealership closest to me — not the one researching the Roush lift. Anyway, I thought I would see if the parts department could dig up the specs and brand on the stock shocks and springs. No dice, the computer system doesn’t have those details is what I was told.
 
No photo description available.


T407H FoMoCo - Part number off a picture on the FB forum if it helps anyone. A quick google search shows it's been used on everything from Mustangs to F150s, so thinking it's more of a label for a parts assembly.
