    Realistically level kits are pretty Dang simple. I've yet to hear of a level kit with strength issues. It's either a bad install or doing something stupid that would've broken stuff anyways

    or not grinding down studs 1/8" causing the stud extensions to snap off :poker: Don't see why they couldn't design a stud extension that didn't require an 1/8" that needed to be grinded off.

    I went with Bilstein 2" leveling struts. Definitely not the cheapest way to level it but at 126k the original struts were worn out anyway.

    One front spring was broken and one was cracked, neither of which I ever noticed before. The squeak I had in the front for a few years is gone now though.

    I find that ReadyLift is generally one of the most expensive brands out there, compared to Daystar, Hell Bent Steel, Rough Country, etc. I do like their upper control arms and their outer tie rod ends, although I don't like the pricing for them. :)

    I've only heard of them breaking once or twice, and that's true it is because of severe abuse. And they didn't actually "break" as in shatter or anything, it was more like stress fractures around the studs.

    yeah may not be the cheapest but i will say my 6" bilstein 5100's are amazing. for a lifted truck on 35's it rides really smooth
