What is the correct ajustable height for a 6” inch lift on a 2008 Ford F-150 with a Bilstein B8 6112.
Answer this question
With all the variances in production and miles driven over a 12 year period, no two vehicles will have the same height adjustments.
The best starting point is to measure the vehicle height before lifting and adjust the height 6” above the measurement taken.
From there, you can adjust for left to right, or front to rear leveling.
