    on the older gen tacos, top mount spacers like that were no bueno...

    since it mounts on top of the coil assembly, it increases the amount of height and distance between your stock upper and stock lower arms...

    imagine mounting a shock that is 2 inches longer than stock in there... with the increased travel, it would damage the stock lower ball joints during offroad situations...

    on the street, i don't think there were any issues...

    Ready Lift does make the following guarantees...
    Keeps your factory ride - Guaranteed
    Will never wear, break or fail - Guaranteed
    Toughest finish – Guaranteed
    Safest way to lift - Guaranteed


    factory ride isn't all that great, so if going to drop the money on an aftermarket suspension, why not improve the ride?

    while the lift parts will never break, the added stress to the stock parts are a bigger concern, but i doubt they will guarantee that

    toughest finish? unless you are entering the truck into import car shows, who cares what it looks like? function over form, not vice versa

    safest way? pretty much as you dont have to deal with taking the shock assembly apart

    Yeah it seems to be fixed now. I reccomend ordering from them free shipping and the shipping was fairly quick they have them shipped straight from readylift.
