I want to put the 22" Ford Edge Sport wheels on my '08 ST. I have worn ball joints, and don't know a THING about suspension. Should I just put the factory-type parts on the truck, knowing I'm going to be changing wheels?

Also, what size tires should I be looking to put on my '08 ST, if I put the 22" Edge Sport wheels on her?

Thanks!!!

JC

30?? 18 and 15 and 24...… Also you MUST torque the bolts at ride height.... suspension loaded, if not you will blow out the bushing again.....

What I do is assemble light torque.... Put the tire on, then lower on the ground and carefully loosen each bolt 1 at a time and then torque to spec...… Follow the spec, if too loose they will shift and move.... Ive had alignment guys f that up and had to re doo alignments a week later...
