I wonder how this kit will impact cv joint wear. Looks killer.

Exactly what I'm looking to do with my carbonized gray base, except I'm hesitant to do the lift.

What do you think of the quality of the RC kit overall?? Any negative or reduced quality driving results?

We haven’t figured it out yet. Going thru step by step with RC to figure it out
I just got off the phone with my shop, and they said RC said they heard of a few of these problems and the solution (as best I understand it) is the struts have to be adjusted with the weight in the vehicle as to compress a bushing (or something) then tightened.
My mechanic said it was the dumbest thing he has ever heard, but supposedly it will work. Won’t know till my new appt: next Wed.

Damn! Thanks for the reply. I will extend this to my shop tomorrow and keep you posted. I may just have to have them take the lift off and go with the 4wheel parts leveling kit Instead. It’s only 3/4 in back & 1” in front.
