    If you’re just looking to clear tires, you can crank the torsion bars up to level it out. That’s probably good for an inch. People do it all the time to clear 285s and 33s.

    I couldn’t say on the kit, but it looks like you’d need a way to address the CV axle angles resulting from a 2-3” raise. Maybe others can chime in on it.

    My gut reaction would be that you get what you pay for, that it’s a made in China special, that the steel is probably sub-standard and that a broken Chinese suspension part would really ruin your day.

    that kit is similar to the basic kits some others sell. repositions your keys so you can get 3 in of lift up front. east302 is correct tho if you crank them up to 3 in with those keys your cv shafts wont last as long as they would. you can crank your stock keys up a little for some extra lift up front. you can also buy just the keys from more reputable sources for a little more than that price.
