2021-2022 Ford F-150 Off-Road Suspension Leveling Kit Out Now

Last November, Ford Authority reported that a new 2021-2022 Ford F-150 Off-Road Suspension Leveling Kit was coming soon from the automaker itself, giving owners of the latest-gen pickup an easy way to lift the front end two inches and make room for larger tires. Now, this new Ford F-150 leveling kit is officially available via the automaker’s catalog under part number M-18000-F15B.

Developed in partnership between Ford and Bilstein, this new leveling kit contains Bilstein “Tuned by Ford Performance” front coil-over assemblies and remote reservoir rear shocks. The front setup consists of a full 60mm digressive piston in a 2.65″ monotube Ford Performance tuned coilover package that lifts the truck by two inches at that end, but can go up to 2.5 inches with the installation of an optional front groove, while the rear shocks house independent dividing pistons to separate nitrogen chambers, which helps to optimize suspension travel.

The items themselves were put together by Bilstein but tuned and tested by Ford’s in-house performance division to optimize both performance and ride quality on all different kinds of surfaces, whether they be paved or unpaved. Each shock features a “Tuned by Ford Performance” decal to tout that fact, too.

While this new kit fits most 2021-2022 Ford F-150 four-wheel drive models, there are some exceptions. It isn’t compatible with the F-150 Raptor, and has not been validated for use in the F-150 Tremor or pickups equipped with the twin-turbocharged Ford 3.5L V6 PowerBoost hybrid. Otherwise, the leveling kit is a direct bolt-in replacement for the F-150’s factory suspension parts, providing an upgrade in both the stance of the vehicle and its ride quality.

The 2021-2022 Ford F-150 Off-Road Suspension Leveling Kit retails for $1,750 and is a nice alternative to most other types of leveling kits, many of which utilize spacers instead of entire replacement coilovers.

    Bilstein…should be a nice ride but expensive

      You can get a set of Bilstein 5100’s, which are very good considering they lift it 2 inches also but theyre only 449$ and 2 inch shocks. Taxes bring it just under 500$. The stage next kit up, Stage 1, has the 6112 coilovers but not assembled for around 760 with rear 5100s. The reservoir rear shocks look like the 5160s already out. Mixing and matching you can get the same kit basically for well under this. Still Bilstein, just no fancy sticker. Honestly looking closer its just a Stage 2 kit but tweaked and tuned by Bilstein/Ford (has a sticker, slightly larger diameter in the strut). Theyre great shocks regardless and very close in price to what you can already buy from Bilstein. 5100s are a really popular aftermarket shock most people use to fit larger tires and get rid of that awful rear end hop the stock shocks have. This seems to be a nice tweak on already great performing shocks/struts.

    Only a fool would pay that amount $1750 for 1 each.
    The idiots didn’t even test it on the powerboost.

      Here is the reply I got from Ford Performance Parts:
      “The issue is there are different weight distribution and ride height characteristics on a Powerboost F-150 vs the standard F-150. The kit was designed for the Standard F-150 configuration.”
      What is the PowerBoost…some kind of one-off that you aren’t supposed to mod at all? They didn’t answer when I asked if I could at least put larger tires on.

      1. BilsteinsRock

        You can lift one with a 500$ Bilstein 5100 kit from many parts outlets.

    2. BilsteinsRock

      Only a fool would, because its for 1 kit. Meaning all 4 corners, not just one shock…..

  3. Robert

    I waited for this kit for over a year, but because I have a PowerBoost, I may be out of luck period. Fantastic.

    I’m curious why no powerboost. The battery is centered on the truck and it can’t be that much heavier.
