    ok im pretty sure that im going with a 5" rough country suspension. im going to get it installed for about $300-400. correct me if i am wrong but this is a good product? i am not really using my truck for off roading so thats why i thought this would be a good fit for me. should i add on the kicker braces? let me know what u think and get your opinion about the product. thanks

    Rough Country is supposed to have decent quality, though I have heard some negative comments about their shocks. Not sure if that's still an issue or not.

    I never installed a rough country 2wd kit, we used Fabtech 2wd kits so I cant say anything about there 2wd kits. I can say we felt the rough country 4wd kits left alot to desire. just our opinion.

    Well I see that it's a spindle lift in the front, that enables you to use the stock shocks over if you want, But it saves you from having to get different shocks if you don't have the extra money, so basically you won't have to get the extended reach shocks for the front since your keeping the stock location. My friend did a 5" CST lift on his Colorado and it was a spindle lift in the front, and he reused his stock shocks and it rides just fine. You can't beat a 5" lift for that kind of money, if it's what everybody says it is. :sign0021:
