How To's - Powertrain, Electronics, Body, & More!

Recommended Posts

Moderator, please feel free to move to appropriate subforum as needed.

 

This topic is intended to provide one-stop hunting for How-To's. Posts in this thread should only contain links to other posts (on the Ford Edge forum or elsewhere) that address the Edge or the MKX. That is about the only rule I can think of. Avoiding duplicate linkages is appreciated :)

Not really a mod, but in support of one for 2011-2013 my. If you had halogens, and you installed HIDs, you may need to adjust your lighting's vertical height. Here is a thread that will help you out:

Upgrading your springs on a 2007-10? Here you go:

 

FRONT:

REAR:

http://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/12503-installing-rear-springs/

 

As stated in the threads, watch out for the specs with "in-lb" vs "ft-lb" measurements. 1 ft-lb = 12 in-lb.
