Ride quality gets a little rougher if it's torsion bars but not as bad with spacers, ball joint wear increases tremendously, because instead of wearing vertically it wears more on a harse angle, install is not bad if removing ur steering knuckles doesn't make u nervous, I recommend a shop install, should only take a hour in half at most and u will still need an alignment

Look into the bistein shock kit to avoid all the problems and get a level truck with a better ride!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong here, but I don't think the level kit you got is going to work for you. If it's just a front level, you might be okay, but the rear suspension is totally different between the 2006 and the 2010. He was either misinformed or he put one over on you.
