The set even levels your truck front to back, making it a more capable hauler than before. It's a good all-around investment for trucking enthusiasts that want to get the most from their vehicles.

    Good besides it should’ve come with shock sleeves. Bare shocks so they’re not protected at all.

    less than satisfactory

    The kit was okay other than it's made in mexico which I think sucks. And, the rear shocks came with the incorrect sleeves in the bottom and was missing the nuts and rubber grommets for the top. Of course they can't just refund you for the rear shocks they want the kit back which is on the vehicle other than the shocks I had to replace with monroes. So you call rough country they can't help until they hear from these guys. Pretty soon the little $200 fun job turns into a $1000 job and your not even using the parts in this kit - save your money and buy a real one or forget it.
