Has anyone used one of these yet? I read an article in Truckin' where they put a 2" inch kit on a 2012 Ford F-150. They said it didn't affect the ride quality at all, and did not produce the "death wobble." Since our trucks ride a little higher than Ford, I'm guessing the "death wobble" could still potentially be an issue.

imo the only way to level our trucks is bilstien 5100 shocks. i set mine at 2.8 and i got the wobble, its only in 4wd for a short period, the guys setting at 2.1 dont seem to be having any issues.the ride improvement is worth the cost and the bilstiens are the same price as a readylift kit.

Thanks for the info. I never even looked at shocks...I figured they would be more expensive.

Anything north of 2.5" up front will lead to CV issues. Stick to 2"...trust me.

I will. Thanks for the info. I think the Billsteins are the way I'll go. I'm not looking for anything extreme.
