Thank you Cadet, I can only speak for my kit, BUT , as long as the kit has the drop brackets for the rear, (WHICH THAT KIT DOES), and lift spindles, it would be great, the one at performance lifts, levels the truck perfect, i dont know if the other kits do, i have personally tried 3 different spacers ,and Performancelifts, were the only ones that got it right, after you ride in it , it will be worth it to not skimp......i waited ,and got it slowly, i usually rush in and get it done, but this time it was done right, if you nedd ANY help e-mail me, I will always help out if I can. i am pretty pleased about my truck on a web site, here is the link ,thanks for looking at it.

I have the CST kit also, the front is done but i'm having some issues with the rear shocks. Do you have to drop the fuel tank on the drivers side to get to the top shock nut? they sure don't give a lot of clearance on the nut side and the frame for both sides. Any info would be great. thanks.

Bullram have you tried the Airbagit spindles? Do they push the front wheels out like the cst? And do the upper control arms fit the 4th gen?

need 35's now. thank you for looking
I was looking in to the CST lift more likely the 4 inch but my question should be same for both did you just install the lift or did you have a spacer up front to level it. Or has CST done a good job to make sure their kit not only lifts but levels at same time?

From my understanding it also levels the truck, as it lifts the front 4 inches it only lifts the rear 1 inch.

I apologize for not answering, sooner, my boys take up a lot of time right now, if someone wants to know ANY thing about the lift .,please e-mail me it is on my profile, i dont mind helping at all

the secret i found for the rear shocks, meaning the freakin LEFT rear one, is get a wrench cheap at a pawn shop or somewhere you get real cheap tools, and cut it in half use only about 4 inches of the wrench, use the open end side, reach up there and you can put the wrench on top where the nut is on one side ,when you rotate the other side while taking it off with a ratchet ,the wrench will rotate and catch on the body, holding it in place, it works great, the other side is easier.

When you get the 4 inch kit, it comes with spindles and rear spacers,you install the spindles and it levels out the truck, but if you like the rake put back in you install the rear spacers to get it back, it is up to your preference
also a trick is you dont REALLY need the extended brake lines, the OEM fit if you swap the left for the right ,and right for the left, i had one get broken and tried it they fit perfect and are DOT complient also. they have been on there since 2009

could you please tell me what kind of shocks you bought for the front? I cannot find any for my 09 2wd and I have the 4inch CST spindles with 2inch spacers to achieve the 6 inches total of lift but I'm skeptical about installing them without extended shocks. Please pm me with a response thanks!

I have the daystar 1.5 level but planned on something more so when.I.got my pro comp es 9000's I ordered the front shocks which are set for a 0-3" lift. Even with only a 1.5 spacer it rides better. Plus only $40 each and the do.have rear shocks for.lifter trucks but since I was thinking of just a larger spacer for.leveling the 0-3" works great and will also accommodate the future cst lift as well with the spindle and a spacer.

Also I had mine done at my friends Midas front spacers, all 4 shocks, and new alignment $300, plus $100 for 4 rotor and pad install since it was already taken apart and since it was there $200 for a flowmaster 14" welded in parts and labor.
