Perfect
I drive a 2001 2wd 4.2lt 5-speed manual f150 and was doing a small 3" lift on it. The original suspension was shot so I decided to purchase this. Went on super easy and works great! I also recommend 1aautos ball joints, same thing, super easy and high quality/good fit.

What is the 2.48 " bolt pattern? How do I check my bolt pattern?
Terry V April 3, 2017
This bolt pattern is the size for the spacing of OE mounting from center to center. You may physically measure, or contact a dealership with your VIN to obtain this information.
