Default Lifted Regular Cab(LOTS OF PICS:)) Also a problem to be resolved. :(

2012 Ram Express 2wd. Went with a CST suspension spindle and coil spacer lift.

Front -
4 inch spindle
2.5 inch coil spacer.

Rear -
2 inch coil spacer.

Tires -
35/1250/20 General Grabbers





Now for the issue. CST says they have sold 200 plus kits in the last couple months for these trucks with no issues whatsoever. The truck looks great, rides great, etc.. Until a day or so later I developed a squeak in the left front end. The coil slid out of the bucket and is rubbing on the steering stabilizer/sway bar.






CST claims there shouldnt be any problems! The Offroad shop says I need to go with a lesser spacer. I see and understand the problem. Whats pissing me off is that a large respected company has this kit that dosnt fit properly... Or theres an issue with the install. So now I have to buy new parts, and or pay for labor and alignment again.

Any insight? Who are you supposed to believe? What facts can you go off of? Theres a guy on here that did the lift and as far as I know never stated any issues.

To each there own my friend. 4wd would have been too much temptation in my opinion, and more money. So therefore I decided to not go with that. I like sitting high, Ive already had a lowered truck, so I wished to go this route. My money spent to my liking.

Now on to hopefully find a solution!
