Default KORE suspensions 3.5" lift?

anyone ever heard of this kit before? i am seriously thinking about getting it to fix my 3 " lift 4wd acceleration wobble problem, thought i might just get the high angle cv joints they sell but 800.00 for the cv joints and 1800 for the whole kit? i think it would be better to just upgrade the crappy stock ball joints and that at once instead of paying for it shortly down the road...since they will void my front end cause of the 3 " spacer.

so just fishing for some comments on this from the lovely knowledgeable people here don't want to make the same mistake as i did with the spacers before i joined the forum

Wow you need upper ball joints already? I would not buy that kit I heard the balljoints on the Kore kit were cheap made.

yeah, heres a pic of what looks like currently before i spent 2.5 hours washing it last night lol


just for comparison heres what it looked like pre 3"/1.5" Spacer kit


Have to keep in mind that now my cv joints aren't cooperating with the 3 inches in the front, when the 4wd is engaged there is a lot of vibration on acceleration if the wheel isn't perfectly straight almost rips the wheel from your hand if your not ready for it. but i love the look of it the way it is now, which is why im seriously considering the high angle cv joints, the kore 3.5 inch would be nice cause of being able to adjust the height to whatever you want. /sigh i dont know what to do sorry for the long answer to you just wanting a picture lol

That sucks bro. I get vibration from 0-15 mph then it is gone and it is not bad at all really.

yeah its a lesson learned though do research before ya buy something, i suppose if i dropped it to 2.5 instead of 3 that's supposed to fix all problems as well lol probably would be the cheapest.
