Anyone use this leveling kit?

Summit Engineering? Claim i will get 2.5" of lift and they are placed between the axle and the bottom spring cup. But for 34 bucks on ebay i guess it is worth a shot? Made from 6061 T-6 Aluminum so i guess rust wont be an issue.

That's why i have not bought it yet. But simple math is saying 6061 T-6 aluminum is stronger than poly

of course. no matter what way you cut it or anything t-6 is strong stuff. But im looking at it from an engineering standpoint. Its cheap but are the bolts good? i guess for the price its worth getting and looking. can always get grade 8s at the store
