The more you are cranking factory or aftermarket keys, the more suspension you are taking away. So it will be a lot rougher ride and suspension parts have a lot higher tendency to wear and break. I would try to stay away from a body lift if possible. The best option is to go with a superlift and get a full kit because theyre made to reduce all those problems.

They're not the safest or best way to do it, thats my opinion.

If they're not safe why are they mass produced and used on millions of trucks?

You are entitled to your opinion and I respect that. However, lots of folks run them with no problem. For the average, weekend off roader, they work just fine.

Hmmm... welcome to the site (Yet again).

If you didn't get much lift, then the bars are probably toast and have sagged over the years.
