Has anyone used it? I've read reviews where they made the truck ride rough and didn't sound good at all. But the price seems on point. I'd appreciate any advice or recommendations. Thank you

I got the kit for christmas from my parents.

I dont really get how they could be any different from other level lift kits. But I will say I was disappointed that the studs are not prepressed in and the hardware is mediocre.

When/if you do it you will probably need a friend for help, I found it literally impossible to hammer the studs out of the shocks and if you pull the shock down from the top you will for sure pop the CV out, you then need to have a friend jack up the A arms while you wiggle the CV back in.

But ride wise nothing has changed, we just added more length to existing suspension.

About 15k miles on mine and no issues. Rides and drives like a truck. Be sure to replace nyloc nuts with new ones, had one almost back completely off when I reused it.

I've had it installed since August and love it! Makes the truck just about perfectly level and stiffens the front end (no bounce). I also added 265/70/17's and there are no rubbing issues and ride is perfect.

Looks great. What size wheels and tires? Did you remove the crash bars?

17x9" Black Rhino Sierra wheels with 285/70/17 Falken Wildpeak tires, cut the crash bars

Looking at this same kit and wondering if the UCA’s need to be replaced with this one? If so which ones did you guys use? If not, no issues with an alignment afterwards?

You can get the kit here and they're a vendor on this site. If you message them they'll send you a discount code which usually offsets the shipping. No issues with the UCA's and you will need an alignment after.mine was $67.00.

I had RC 2.5's installed but went with Eibach struts and rear shocks. No issues at all with the RC's but I want to tighten up the ride a bit with the Eibachs set at 2.25".

Just now put mine on. The look is great. I took it to Pep Boys to get it aligned and they told me that they can’t do it because I put the level kit on and they only know how to put it to factory specs. Sounds weird to me. Any suggestions on where to take it for alignment that won’t feed me a line?
