Question Has anyone heard of or use this kit before.

I am getting ready to install a lift soon. Right now I am just researching which lift I want and how high I want to go. I ran across this one and wanted to get everyone's thoughts. Let me know if you have heard anything about this kit or have used this kit yourself or know someone who has. I have never heard of this brand but, at almost half the price it makes me curious. http://www.ebay.com/itm/190844322970...84.m1423.l2649

looks me to like a glorified leveling kit. i wouldnt dare lift the front 3" without a diff drop on a 4wd.a 5" RCX for your truck is 1150$ i think. most likely get it cheaper if you shop around.the guys at bullys performance can hook ya up for sure. you can always get a smaller level kit and do a bodylift as well.

Newfiebullet is right on this one.. I don't see any truck liking that kit to much, would be some pretty bad angles and damage.

I would still think a spacer that big could cause some stuff to sit unproper and cause excessive wear on parts being at wrong angles.

Maybe I am seeing something different than you guys are. The auction I am looking at is for 3" lift spindles and 1" lift blocks. I don't see any spacers. So what is the difference between what is included in this kit and a CST kit with the except that one is 3" and the other is 4". If I am understanding you correctly the CST kit would be bad as well.

Nothing wrong with that kit at all. I was researching lifts for my truck and came across a bunch of guys running this on other forums, never saw any negative at all.

Yeah my bad I'm sorry. Sun has finally got to me at work.. Had myself all mixed up and for some reason was looking at the spindles as more of a spacer then anything else.
I guess the only thing I would be worried about is the quality of the products.
