IMPORTANT

SAFETY WARNING

Always use the correct tools and wear safety goggles. We strongly recommend installation by a licensed mechanic on a properly secured locking lift.

VEHICLE RIDE WARNING

Trucks with lift or level kits installed will have higher centers of gravity than stock. Aggressive driving and sudden direction changes can cause an unexpected rollover.

TIRE FITMENT

The best way to ensure proper tire fitment is to install the kit before purchasing your wheel and tires. Always test fit tires and wheel before purchasing.

INSTALLATION TIPS

Truck are often not level side to side from the factory. Always measure before installation.

Always re-torque all hardware to the manufacturer’s original specifications.

In order to get the best tire wear, use the supplied alignment specifications. OEM specifications are for trucks with stock wheels and tires. Larger tires will wear differently.

All instructions are written for vehicle on a two-post lift with tires removed.

Always use caution when handling ABS or wheel sensor wiring. Avoid tension of any kind of wiring harness as this may caused damage or failure.

NOTE: make sure the position of the spring is the same as before. Check rotational alignment between upper and lower strut mount before attempting reinstallation.

Alignment Notes:

We recommend that a technician with experience doing alignments on lifted trucks perform the alignment. Large tires wear differently than OEM sized tires. Always do an alignment after changing tires on a vehicle.
