It will require you to stack your back blocks with the ones they provide which is never a good idea. Also when adding the spring spacers up front you either need a shock extension or new shocks.

It is cheap, but remember, you get what you pay for.

The quality of the components seems ok, but it doesn't appear to be a complete kit.

I was going to say the same thing, but what goes on the coil to raise the front?

I was looking almost the same kit but the complete 2.5. The front has the aluminum blocks that go under the springs and the rear blocks that stack. I saw that yall said that the rear blocks were not a good idea to do it that way, but what about the coil spacers underneath the coils?

Coil spacers arent the best way either but its probably safer than stacking the blocks.
