Customer feedback on Newton leveling kits??

I just ordered a Newton 2.5 inch front leveling kit and rear 3.5 inch block. Wanted to hear how the installs went from guys who have this kit and how the ride was after the kit. I should be installing mine wed or thursday. Thanks fellas. Also, any pointers during install would be greatly appreciated.

PS- did you have to purchase anything extra after the lift was on, or is this pretty complete?

Would also like to know how the Newton kits are handling. I am looking at the 3" for my 04 F350.

WOW that was way harsh. Did you personally have a bad experience with Newton? I have never heard of anyone complaining about them before.

that was kinda my feeling...from ALOT of research on here i have found a few hit or miss threads on newton and not one word of bad experience, but i figured i would start an updated thread from actual installers and drivers that use his kit. I like to take my advice from first hand users.

Their a reason its on Ebay..some don't care and can't tell what the kit did as long as it lifts the truck cheaply its all that matters. Read their adds then ask a expert not someone that has a cheap kit..unless you just don't care about doing it correctly.

^Agreed

Their spacers for the stock trac bar bracket are a joke. The sad part is somebody will probably wreck their truck when/if they go out/break. Do it right and buy an adjustable trac bar or the correct drop down bracket. I CANNOT STAND THAT PEOPLE HALF A S S THEIR 50K TRUCK to save a few bucks. Do it right the first time and never look back.

Guys, why can't you just let the guy be? If he's asking for personal experience from people who have the kits, why are you on the post commenting if you don't have one? Everyone I've seen that has put one on has loved it and had NO issues. If you have the money to put into your truck right now, good for you.

ExtremeFord4x4, it looks like you spent more money on your truck than your house. That's smart. I CANNOT STAND THAT PEOPLE SPEND MORE ON THEIR TRUCK THAN THEIR HOME because they're ignorant.
