I am wondering for all of you guys that have a 4x4 and want it to look like a 4x4 so you level it, who has had any suspension problems with their front end after a bunch of miles?

I want to know the following.

1. What leveling kit do you have installed?
2. Did you do anything else to your suspension besides the kit ie. suspension/body lift, air bags ect...?
3. How many miles do you have on it WITH the leveling kit?
4. Have you had any problems with the front end ie. ball joints wearing out, CV joint wear out, vibration (after many miles, not from the start) ect...?

I will go ahead and start this off.

Installed 5100's, had alignment right afterwards and no problems.
Have 1000 miles on the truck AFTER the level. 52k miles total on the truck. No problems with anything.

Bilstein 5100's with alignment 500 miles after install. No problems so far with 5000 miles on them.

Previously had a Daystar kit which I took off. I had it one for aout 12,000 miles and had to replace a upper ball joint when I switched to the leveling shocks.

Just ordered the Rough Country kit this evening, 2.5" front and 1.75" rear... Can't wait to get it! Hopefully no problems with this kit.
