    So as I looked under my Expedition on a car lift I decided to look and try to see why my 03 Expedition is only limited to these 3.5 lifts.
    BC the uppers and lowers can be modified/fabricated .The steering linkage can also be modified. The spindle can be swapped out for a extended spindle .
    So the only reason that I could figure out that would REALLY stop it being lifted to a certain height say around 8 inches is the axles.
    At some point the pinion angle in the axles will be to much and could cause bad vibration in the joint area.
    So therefore you would need extended axles .

    So with that being said then I'd say that the axles would be the stopping point after u reach a certain height.

    So am I correct or am I missing/not seeing something ??
