hey guys ive been doing some research on level kits and want to find a considerably cheap one so i can try and focus some more on performance :woot: but i want my truck to look a little better than it does now and was wondering if anybody had heard about the rear shackle replacement on the front leaf springs? im looking into a 1.5" longer shackle on the front and was wondering if its worth the 50 bucks they want for it or if it will involve more stuff than they say?? :confused::confused:

i did mine, and alot of other people has as well on this site, theyre pretty nice, i got the 2.5 in the front and **** sits kind of even, only becuase i have air bags in the bak, and theyre raised up. they smoothen out the rid, and theyre not that hard to put on(theyre on in my sig pic)
