Re: 2002 Shackle Leveling Kit Questions

Just from seeing no negative reviews about it and the fact that it seems fairly easy i will probaly try it for no more than it cost..

Re: 2002 Shackle Leveling Kit Questions

I had them on my truck (just removed them and put X-code springs on) and they did everything they were supposed to but they do increase caster ( i think) and i noticed mine didn't steer as easy with them on. Nothing you can't get used to though. They also change the dirve shaft angle, not sure if that matters or not?
