From everything that I could find, its a great company/product. All the trucks that I've seen, with their lift, looks great.

Yep, me and a buddy just put the 2.5" kit on my 2010 and his 2011, kit looks great. The spacers look great too, nice welds and powder parted black. We did both of our trucks in 3 hours. Very easy to do with basic mechanical knowledge. My only suggestion would be to remove the upper sway bar link instead of the lower. The lower gave us hell on my drivers side and worked much better to remove the upper. You'll also need a buddy to help with putting the bottom strut mount bolt back in. My truck sits about 1/2" higher in the front than the back now and will probably install a 1" spacer in the back soon. My buddies truck sits perfectly level on stock tires.

I did the 2" on my 07 and I think it looks great. For the price you can't beat it either!

Did you guys have to use the Anti swaybar drop brackets that HBS sells?

Nope, I'm not sure if the 3rd and 4th gen trucks have the same sway bar setup though. The kit went on very easily and both trucks only required minor adjustments for the alignment. Also I do have before and after pics but there on my phone, my laptop is fried. If you want me to send them, just pm me your cell number and I'll text them to you. Hopefully getting my new laptop next week.

I just reread your original post and seen that your doing it on a 2011, sorry about that, your signature thing says you have an 06. Also both of our trucks are 1500's so I'm not sure if the 2500's are the same setup.
