Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
I removed grill and plastic under grill next to bumper. unbolted body mounts to lift cab up to replace floor. unhooked wiring on each side of door posts. when the work was done hooked everything back up. everything works great but airbag light flashing now.
I think you have a false code stored due to your work. clear the code and you should be ok.
If the air bag indicator does not illuminate or the indicator stays on or flashes at any time, a fault has been detected by the air bag diagnostic monitor.
Diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) may not be displayed for approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in the RUN position. This is the amount of time the air bag diagnostic monitor requires to perform all tests and verify system faults.
Each DTC (a series of flashes and pauses of the air bag indicator):
If a system fault is present and the air bag indicator is malfunctioning, an audible tone will be heard. The tone is a series of five sets of five beeps. If the tone is heard, the air bag system needs attention.
If a fault exists that makes unwanted air bag deployment possible, the air bag diagnostic monitor will attempt to remove deployment power by turning on a solid state switch to blow the 10A battery fuse.
If the 10A battery fuse has successfully been blown by the air bag diagnostic monitor, the air bag diagnostic monitor will not attempt to blow it again until the proper fault has been repaired and cleared (refer to Diagnostic Instructions). The air bag diagnostic monitor will store both the unwanted deployment diagnostic trouble code and the loss of deployment power diagnostic trouble code. The loss of deployment power diagnostic trouble code is the highest priority.
If a fault exists that makes unwanted air bag deployment possible, the air bag diagnostic monitor has an internal fuse that that will blow (open) automatically. This removes all power to the air bag deployment circuit.
DTCs are prioritized numerically. If two or more faults occur at the same time, the fault having the highest priority will be displayed first. After that fault has been corrected, the next highest priority fault will be displayed.
The air bag diagnostic monitor includes an internal backup power supply. This feature provides sufficient backup power to deploy the air bag in the event the battery (10655) or battery cables are damaged in a collision before safing and air bag sensors close. The backup power supply will deplete its stored energy approximately one minute after the positive battery cable is disconnected.
Once a DTC is logged into the air bag diagnostic monitor memory, it will stay in memory until 80 key cycles have been recorded or until the NGS is used to erase the DTCs. Once 256 key cycles have been recorded since the concern was last detected, the DTC will automatically be removed from memory.
Active Command Modes
This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag system, indicator and tone. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator and the tone are simultaneously activated for approximately four seconds. Both devices are automatically deactivated.

SOURCE: Rotton body mounts
Are you taking about the rubber mount bushings? You can get replacements at your local Dodge dealer, or you could opt for a 2" body lift which comes with new mounts.

SOURCE: bigger tires...
Taller tire have more centrifugal force because they have more mass (weight). A body in motion tends to stay in motion. They also have a larger outer diameter therefore through all the weight to the out side of the tire. requiring more energy to accelerate and more energy to slow down than a smaller tire at the same speeds. This is why I would recommend up graded in your brakes and also lowering your gear ratio( numerically higher) if you are going to larger tires. A lower gear ratio will act as a torque multiplier which will get you moving faster up to speed and also adjust your speedometer to be more accurate.
When you go to larger tires your speedometer will be inaccurate because taller tire have large outer diameter. A taller outer diameter tire will travel farther per revolution than a smaller tire. This cause your engine speed to be lower with taller tires because your vehicles tires are moving slower do to it larger outer diameter.
There your vehicle can be re calibrated through the computer. 4wheel parts offers parts call true speed sensors which also recalibrate your speedometer accurately that is the way i would go. Also maybe up grade to larger master cylinder off a 1 ton Chevy and go with some drill and slotted rotors. You most likely will have better braking with these upgrades than you would stock. keep it safe!
Good luck and have fun.

SOURCE: I want a body lift for my truck
Do you have 4WD? Usually they dont have very many lift kits for 2WD. All they can give you really is longer leaf springs or blocks in the rear, and spring spacers or taller springs for the front.
As for 4WD, they have the same fittings for the rear, but the front theres a different set up.
