5.0 Money friendly lift with better ride.

Installation is a bit intensive. You essentially have to take off the entire front end to get the lower control arm to lower fat enough to get the spring/shock assembly out. I used the highest setting for height which netted me about 2” of lift. Still looks ok with the stock tires on. It did need an alignment afterwards as the toe was slightly out. The ride is much improved over the stock shock even though I do think this truck is a bit over sprung. But that’s not the shock’s fault. All in all it’s a good budget way to get the front a little higher and a better ride over stock.
