Shock extenders

I know the question has been asked a buzillion times, but I want to get a 2" leveling kit and the shock extenders I have seen look pretty much like 2 nuts put together. I found this kit on fleabay and was wondering what your thoughts are to the shock extenders it comes with. Here it is.

I actually just put that one on my truck last week. Mine came with the rear blocks as well. Pretty easy to put on if you can get your truck off the ground high enough. Other than that I dont have any complaints about them

with the rear block that leveled you out, since my rear blocks are about an inch taller than a 250 rear block, the one i linked should set mine exactly like yours. Do you have any pics of your truck?

The riser looks great but the shock extension looks like it has some side to side slop that after a while might break loose. but that is purely from looking at it, do you know if it has any "slop" in it?

why not buy the correct shocks from the get go. the stock ranchos are not the greatest anyway

Because money is kind of tight and i want it to be leveled instead of nose diving, especially now that i think i have a missfire.
