It fits, but not sure about quality
First of all, I somehow ordered the wrong set to begin with. I am 100% positive my truck is a 2006 and I order things all the time online. Somehow the set for 2001 was shipped and I had to return it on my I started off $50 or more in the hole and not too happy. Nothing I could do about it and 1aauto surely wasnt going to help even though I believe it is their system that messed up and ordered the wrong parts. I have installed everything and it fit the way it is supposed to, but the steering still seems a little "loose". I am mechanically inclined and have done lots of work on cars and trucks. Just to be safe, you might want to consider ordering elsewhere. Its cheap...but it could also be cheap.... If you get my drift.

2001 F150 "Ole Squeaky"
I replaced the bushings with the kit and it totally stopped the irritating noises. Very happy with the product and it was a perfect fit, took about a full day for a beginner. Local auto store has the bushing repair tools to borrow so I saved hundreds doing it myself. I was very impressed with the delivery it came days before estimated. Now I drive in "Stealth mode". Thank you.

How do I find out what size bolt pattern idler arm I needs or my 2001 f150?
Justin L October 11, 2015
measure the spacing of the mounting bolts from center to center
Jim C October 13, 2015
THe two holes measured from center to center will measure either 2.48 (roughly 2.5") or 3.43" (roughly 3-7/16"); enough difference between the two to easily differentiate between the two using a ruler. The idler arm is right of center to the center link. The idler arm bolts to the frame. One can easily measure the it from below the vehicle
Kell W October 14, 2015
Two bolts connect idler arm frame. Measure from center of one bolt head to center of the other. This will be close enough for you to determine which of the two bolt patterns you have.

I can turn a wrench as well as any backyard mechanic, but have actually never done front end work before. Once this is all installed do I need to have an alignment done?
Forrest M August 30, 2018
Yes you do. Measure your old linkages, preset your new ones to those measurements. That should get you close enough to drive to shop for alignment.
L Y August 30, 2018
T O August 30, 2018
Yes, an alignment would need to be performed after replacing these parts. Thank you.

I would also like to get the lower control arm. How much will it be if that’s included with the kit?
Argelio C September 20, 2018
Thank you for contacting us. We are not able to add or customize the products in this kit. We would need further information to confirm if we have the correct lower control arm for your application. And if we do, we can see if we offer a kit that would include everything you are looking for. Thank you.
