    I'm curious, this long-travel kit from CST says off-highway only, any idea why?

    I read that Stealth, makes you wonder. I would hit that contact us button and email them as to why it's not meant for highway use and see what they reply. Lets us know if you don't get a reply here.

    All their long travel kits say that. I'm betting it has something to do with the added width and tires sticking outside the fenders.

    I think you are right. After reading some other websites, and seeing pics of the work, the tires do stick out farther past the fenders on the front. Plus it also talked about the different heights, and the further you go over the axles, the vehicle center of gravity makes the body lean when going thru turns.

    I'd be willing to bet some of the suspension parts havnt been certified by DOT, by law they can only sell for off road use without that certification.
