Excellent product
If you are just after a better level bed carry option rather than a lift, this is the way to go. Very simple to install. Works very well to keep the bed level when I have a 700-900lbs round bale in the bed. It can lift you a little if you crank it down. It can be noisy if you leave it loose or sloppy. It will stiffen the ride slightly. I did notice that the axel wrap noise had decreased with this spring. The only odd thing is that the instructions say you have to turn the front shackle on the driver's side sideways. I have no idea why. It does not interfere with anything if put in place normally. If anything, it actually is more likely to be an issue if put on as the instructions suggest since the brake line is going to rub.
