Few pics of install and parts. Again the spring compressor was a big help for me working alone. Maybe for a couple guys you would not need it. Overall everything went well. No F-bombs, No throwing wrenches, and no scraches or dents. Thanks for all the tips guy's.

Ive been looking at this kit for mine. I tow my race car and want to know how this kit will act towing. I really dont want the rear to be lower than the front when towing. These trucks are just crazy high for 2wds. My girlfriend actually wants me to lower it lol. She has a hard time getting in it. I refuse to put side steps on a 2wd.

Truck looks great man. Let us know how she tows.

Sorry for the late reply, I havent been to this site for a while. No I havent towed anything with my kit but loaded the bed with heavy crap a couple dozen time. Never had any issues driving and the back end never sagged lower than the front. I have over 10,000 miles on my kit and by far the best upgrade I could have ever done. Still very happy with ride and the way it looks. It took about a week to settle at exaly 2" font 3" in the rear.
I have heard of helper air bags that insert inside of the rear coils for guys who tow. From what I hear the are pretty cheap and easy to install, with no need for an onboard compressor.
Good Luck

This kit works great and is very easy to install. Someone did a nice write up on it.
