Rough country is what my dealer orders when they do leveling kits. They say , no issues at all with this kit.

From what I've read people are satisfied with that kit, but personally I think body lifts just ride too rough.

I was concerned about the deathwobble problem other members had with spacers on the front shocks. I went with Blistein 5100's. They have five possible settings. I went with the second highest setting which gave me a 3/4 inch rake. I had an aligment done (this is a must). I have had no problems, truck rides the same as it did when I drove it off the lot. Also, I have not noticed any significant change in mpg.
