Found a nice lift!

A buddy of mine put this on his truck and can't stop talking about it. What do you guys think? I think I am going to also get it and put on some 35s.

I like the looks of this kit. I'm sure shocks need to be addressed too when dealing with a kit like this. My only question is what about the track bar, etc up front when using something like this?

I checked his truck out and the shock mounts to the top of the springs so you don't need them I don't think. The kit has 2 billet spacers to drop the track bar bracket down. I checked his axle and it was dead center.

Thanks for the info! I have been looking at a lot of different leveling kits lately and this one seems to be priced right and made well.

So many lies its funny..Their Plate steel not spring steel, all mini spring packs are tapered and unlike these have mitered ends.

The factory cast blocks are as strong as needed never seen one fail


. Spacers that's real safe for a track bar mount..he finally saw the light on needing some way of correcting the track bar leanth from lifting I see...No Insurance I'd bet.

Good luck with back yard lift kits...

Love the way their always a newbie with 2 or 3 posts on some forum raving about these lifts...

I guess I will take that with a grain of salt. He even harps on them for making there blocks too strong! That company gets a lot of praises on this site. they also have almost 900 feedbacks all on suspension kits.

I wouldnt want that kit under my truck, plus its a little too expensive for what you would get.
I'd recommend a lift or level kit from SKY they are absolutely the best when it comes to quality lifts that maintain the factory ride.

I wouldn't put lift blocks on the front of my truck and that's what those are in disguise. Those spacers for the track bar bracket are definitely Mickey Mouse. I wouldn't even consider this kit for a minute.

What do you think of the drop hanger leveling kit from SKY? And would you get the optional "adjustable pan hard bar" or is it not necessary?

Yes, get the panhard too. The drop hanger is one of the right ways to do a lift.
