    I bought some for $300 off some guy that had them for 10 months. He upgraded to a total chaos kit. But saved me $550. He bought them for 850 so I'm not complaining.I just wanted to know if they where anygood. I haven't heard anything
    good or bad. I plan on upgraded to a better Coilover as soon as I see a good deal.

    keep the truck on the street until you can get around to some better coilovers...

    for street use though, you should be ok...

    for the OP, whose wheeling options are desert prerunning, it can be a pain...

    i have heard from folks in the 4x4 crawling scene that didnt have any issues...

    the only drawback to their coilovers is their base level coilovers are not rebuildable and their top end versions are not that durable...

    I don't do any off roading. Only time I take it out when I drive to camp when I go dirt biking. But eventually Ill change them out.

    i have them on mine and I wheel hard especially during hunting season.... and I have no problem with them at all. It handles whoops good, washboard good, it flexs good, and it is smooth offroad. Just my input. Do what you want.
