Review Product
ride quality
I had installed them on the top ring, the truck has a very aggressive stance. however I will be removing them to put them on the stock position, because with them being on the top ring, there is no upward travel in the suspension and rides so rigid, keeping an alignment is nearly impossible. other than the poor ride quality on the top ring it is a great product. I will post an update once I reinstall them on the stock setting.

Couldn't be happier!
I gave the ease of installation 3 stars only because I didn't do the install on the front struts, but these are absolutely amazing and worth the money. my only regret is that I didn't buy them sooner.
