install was a breeze, dropped it off on friday, went and sat on the beach and sipped on hurricanes with the wife for the weekend, and picked up the truck monday. Dont think it needed a pitman arm, dont see one listed in the kit.

I am thinking about getting this lift. Do you think that a 4.5" is too much for towing a 5th wheel or goose neck trailer??
