leveling kit

Postby silv99 [OP] » Mar 19 2015, 1:32am

So my truck, each time I hit a bump or crack in the road my truck was rattling teeth loose. Had my t bars almost maxed to clear 33s. So I decided its time for a leveling kit.
I got the rough county kit, with shocks, keys, and blocks.
( took me about 8 hours to remove the old keys and the biggest electric hammer money could rent me)
but I got them in, along with idler and Pittman arms. And it's like a brand new truck, incredibly smooth, site 2 inchs higher than before. My tires almost look small on the truck now.

Very happy with the product and out come!!

Thought I'd share.

Need right outer tie rod and right wheel bearing for alignment. That's Saturday's task.

And these are 305/70s, lots of room for them at all angels
