Installed ReadyLift level kit

Got it in today. Pretty easy, except for the fact that the truck is HUGE and you really need a lift to move it up/down. I have 2 crafsman 3 ton proffesional jacks and it bent them all up. I barely could do the job. If I had known that, I would of had a shop do it. But it's done. the front end is about 1" higher than the rear now. I'm pretty happy with it. I don't like how the axle moved to the driver side so much. You REALLY need a panhard drop bracket. the distance between the coil spring and the bump stops is a a big difference. I have about 1/2" on the passenger side and about 1.25" on the driver side. pretty big difference. Essentially I should of gone with the Superlift Level kit, but.... I tried saving money. I give it a C. Gets the job done, not hard, good quality level kit. Just needs a panhard drop bracket.

As you know, I'm getting ready to do mine. What are you going to do about the panhard rod bracket?

Level kit has been on less than 1hr and I'm all ready pretty sure I'm going to replace it with a Superlift level kit, or a 4" superlift system. Going to think about it for a few days and figure it out. Not only do you have to get a trackbar drop bracket, you also need Bump stop drops..... UH. PITA. just get a superlift kit. I was supposed do F350 blocks in the rear next, but I'm gonna rething this whole thing. I'm really leaning toward a 4" Superlift though.... I'm going to price the Superlift Level kit and 4" kit and see what the difference is and sleep on it for a few days.



OK, thought about it. Priced the Level kit and the 4" kit from superlift. 4" kit it is. for about $800 I can get the complete 4" kit with shocks. All correction brackets, front springs and everything. Screw it. I'm going to leave my readylift level kit on until I get my Superlift 4" kit. :burnout

What kind and year truck did you put this on? Did you end up taking the readylift off?
