Post Leveling kit

Hi all. I was at Action Truck Accessories yesterday and they have a leveling kit on sale for $224.99 It is a 1.5" lift made by Ready Lift Suspension Inc. They also have a 2" lift for about 20 bucks more. They will also install them there for about $450. Is this a good Lift? and a good deal for Installing it?

I'm thinking of putting on 33" tires on it later.

Overpriced and best to get the dealer, or someone experienced to install it.

Go with something like Autospring...a lot of people have them without issues.

And the reason why I say the dealer (or someone in the know), is it is possible to screw up the electric steering on our trucks. If the dealer does it, they will have to warranty the install.

i bought the 2.5" auto spring off ebay, $109 to my door, and action van truck world charged me $400 for install and alignment (also had rear AAL installed also) so not even $300 for front and back.

i've seen eastgate pump out some custom trucks.
so i would say they are maybe more familiar..

but i would call each and ask if they have done any and how much they charge?

-
We did lumberjack's truck in roughly an hour. and had never done one before.
it was a RoughCountry leveling block that installed on top of the strut. super easy to do.

Definately Eastgate if you're going to use a dealer as they do their own custom trucks. Mohawk Ford doesn't have anything like that.

Travis: Did you have to bring his truck in for an alignment afterwards or anything? What type of tools are required?
