It is high, but the billet aluminum rebuildable upper arms and the chromoly steel cvs is what makes it cost so much. The cvs are 800.00 and the uppers are 750.00 so there is 1550.00 of the 1995.00 price tag just in those two pieces. The KORE kit is a little high, but at least it addresses the main week links while lifting it.

Well weather the guy i talked to says the blistens in the kit are not the regular 5100's they are heavier duty and re-valved but who knows. Regardless this is going to fix the issues i have and give me more travel with the stock width so I'll pay the money for that.

Let us know after you get them done. They look like quality parts and I'd like to see if they fix your issue and how it rides after you get them in.

I have the prerunner kit installed on mine. I previously put the bilstein 5100s in to level it and I can confirm that they are the same shocks, part number and everything. That guy is incorrect. Also, the cv joints appear to be quality. Just don't mess up building them and you'll be fine.

Can you post any pics of it? Both of the whole truck and maybe of what it looks like underneath?

Thanks!

Very Nice. Do you get any vibration at all either in 2wd or 4wd at any speed?

Negative. However, I never had vibrations prior to the mod either.

Hey sorry if I misunderstood this, are you running the Prerunner kit with 20" wheels? I thought you had to run 17" with 4.5" backspacing, I have 20's on my truck right now and am interested in the kit, but don't really want to go down to 17's.

Yep I have 20's. They are 4.5" backspacing. I checked with KORE to see if it would work. They said it "probably" would work. My 35s cleared the new control arm just fine, but they rubbed my fenders and bumper really bad. I had to throw on the body lift to make it driveable. Also, you won't get 3.5" lift out of the prerunner kit. The only lift you get is from the bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks that come with the kit. Which I think is 2.7" max.
