excessive amounts of GNAR.

wheel bearings are the main issue. coil springs also sag over time, but that will happen with any spring.

edit: just looked at your sig, if you want that for the truck in your signature, it will not work. that is for the 2wd models. you need their 6.0 kit, and to then convert your truck to 2wd

Or a superlift kit. You can get it from the TRS off road fab for around 1550

it all comes in the box, if your truck is manny you wil need to buy a extender for that but everything else is in the box.

well this statement that your friend made may be true, but if you think that its THAT rusted and mechanical failure is always lurking than i would have somethin done about it, before you ever even put the lift on, its not safe nor practical to drive something like that even without a lift, just sayin.
