    What are your guys opinions on them? I hear stuff about them wearing out ball joints faster than if it wasnt lifted ( but how much faster??)
    Do shocks need to be replaced with a 2" spacer?

    with a 2" spacer you will be fine my brother got his 2007.5 not to long ago and the prevs owner had it on pretty much since new and he never had to replace anything and your stock shocks are fine

    Will parts wear faster with a leveling kit? Yes. Could take months...could take years. Or you may not have a single issue before you trade/sell. It just depends on the truck and the operator. Don't sweat it.

    The extra wear is so little you won't notice. I know guys that had to replace balljoints on a stock 40,000 mile truck. My '05 with 6" lift, 35"tires and 89,000 plus miles has the stock balljoints.

    thanks! thats what i was wanting to know. from what i read about 80% of people say there are good for a cheap lift and about 20% of people say they are no good.

    oh another question. I see spring spacers on ebay- that are cheaper. Are those any good? Is it possible to like "mess up" a spacer and make it bad quality? Would you buy one?
