its a very basic kit, if you dont want to wheel much, thats fine, if you want any performance out of it, you need more than blocks in the back and drop brackets for the front. your front will be just as stiff and not flexy as it is stock. might move just a hair different with those springs but the short radius arms wont let it move much. extended radius arms are key.
