1995 Ford F150 Fuel Pump Replacement

by Admin April 16th, 2012

And we are working on the same 1995 Ford F150 again! The truck came stock with two tanks, the one in the rear has always leaked which is common, and the fuel pump went out on the front tank.  We decided to go with replacing the fuel pump in the front tank.  It sounded like an easy enough project and it’d be done in a few hours… yeah not quite.  This truck has some serious Michigan rust and someone decided to take it through the mud the night before 1995 Ford F150 Fuel Pump Replacement photo

F150 Rusted Strut Tower

Well The same 1994 F150 we replaced the Radius Arm Bushing on a few months ago finally fell victim to the Michigan rust cancer again.  This time the Strut tower broke on the drivers side.  The passenger side isn’t much better, but since it is my younger brothers truck with a limited budget, we will just do one side for now.

Ford Radius Arm Bushing Replacement

Ford F150 Radius Arm Bushing Replacement

The Situation
My brothers 1994 Ford F150 4×4 5.8L had a horrible thump coming from the drivers side floorboard area.  After a visual inspection we found the ford radius arm bushing didn’t hardly exist anymore.  So whenever he hit a bump the radius arm was flopping around in the bracket that connects to the frame.

After a visual check it appeared that the radius arm bracket that holds the radius arm to the frame could be removed and the bushing replaced.  The other option would be to unhook the front of the radius arm so it could be pulled out of the bracket.  Since that involved removing shocks and spring retainers we decided to go with just removing the mount on the frame.

F150 Cab removal

by Admin November 2nd, 2011

I came across a cool article on how to remove the body from a 97-03 f150.  In their example they used a Expedition, but do mention an f150.  I happen to have a spare body for my lifted f150 and dream of some day swapping the rust free body onto the old Michigan rust box

I don’t have a lift and would probably want to keep my interior, so it would be an even bigger project…. ehh maybe some day.  Anyhow in case you’d like to read through it.

F150 No Power Windows Power Locks Interior Lights

F150 No Power Windows Power Locks

Recently in my 1997 Ford F150 my power windows, power locks, power mirrors, and dome light all stopped working intermittently.  Within a few weeks the issue quickly became that they all stopped working.  For the most part there was no power in the cab, the dash gauges worked, but that was about it.  Drivabilty was not impacted, but needless to say this was a major issue.

Ford Explorer Rear Coil Spring Replacement

by Admin October 27th, 2011

Changing rear struts and springs on a 2002 – 2005 Ford Explorer

The Situation

A common issue with the 2002 – 2005 Ford Explorer is that the rear coil springs tend to break over time.  On our explorer both rear springs were broken in multiple locations.  Because of the age of our 2002 Ford Explorer (150k) it was past time to replace the rear struts while it was apart.  If you decide to go with struts and springs that you assemble yourself I’d add some time  to the overall job.  In that case you will need a spring compressor and some patience.

Since I’m not a mechanic by day and just an occasional wrench this job took me a lot longer than I’d like to admit.  I’m hoping that with the information I prove you can complete this project in an evening.

If you are also going to replace the struts and springs I would consider getting the Monroe Quickstrut assembly.  Below is the best price I have found, and shipping is very reasonable. Monroe 171322 Quick-Strut Complete Strut AssemblyFord Explorer Rear Coil Spring Replacement photo

My 1997 Lifted F150

My Lifted F150

This is my lifted F150 and the primary reason for creating liftedf150.com.  I purchased it about 6.5 years ago and she was already badly beaten and abused.  Withing a week oil pressure was all over the map and within a few months the old motor blew apart.  Upon further inspection someone had been in the motor before and let’s just say they did the worst job i’ve ever seen.

Needless to say she has been a lot of work to get her in reliable running condition, but has been a good truck and my 1997 F150 mpg is also decent. My 1997 lifted F150 reviews is positive considering she is almost 15 years old now.

Replace 2002 Ford Explorer Fuel Filter

How to Change a 2002 – 2005 Ford Explorer Fuel Filter

No this is not a lifted F150, but it is a 4×4 ford! Since all Ford fans are welcome at Lifted F150 I thought this might be helpful.  If you have additional thoughts please become a member and comment below!

While changing the fuel filter on my wife’s 2003 Ford Explorer I realized it was not quite as straight forward as some I had changed in the past.  Because of the location with limited viability and the type of clamps it caused me to scratch my head a couple times.  Since I didn’t find this to be as easy as I expected, I have decided to share some steps for ford explorer fuel filter change.
