Default Zone 6" Lift for 2500

I installed the Zone 6" lift on my 2500 this past weekend. Before I bought it I came here looking for some information but couldn't find much. I figured it would be a good idea to give a quick review for anyone thinking about buying one. Overall I think its a great kit. It rides very good. The only negatives i have about it are, one, I'm not sure its a true 6" on the front. I didn't do a before and after measurement but the rear block is a 4" block and I think the truck still has some rake to it. The other thing is its got a little more road noise. Almost a hollow echo in the front. I believe its because of the Urethane bushings in the shocks. They transfer the vibes right through them unlike the factory rubber bushings. It took some time to install (about 6 hours) even on a lift in a shop. The time consuming part was the few (14) holes I had to drill. Overall though like I said, its a great kit, especially for the price.
