    i just installed my 3 inch revtek kit yesterday. and was comparing with my friend with a 3 inch revtek lift also but different style. my front sits higher a little bit with 31s and he has 33s. his rear sits about 3 inches higher than mine. but mine looks level and his leans to the front. his block measures 3 inches mine measures 2inches. im confused with revtek. anyone else see this?

    Hi there neighbor! :)

    I had the same lift put on by schwab, and it sucks ass!!!
    My rear blocks were 3" and leaned to the front. I geuss they have 2 different lifts. One that gives the same stance as stock. And one that will level out the truck. (3" front, 2" rear)

    I had that lift for about a year and hated every second...Over time it will get worse, and your truck will ride pretty stiff/ferm..... This is just my thaughts, and I know a few people that like the stiff ride.
    But not only that but it will cause more axle wrap in the rear springs and the blocks will wear out you leafs and springs quicker. Your front will start to sag as mine did. i did it, bc I didnt know any better and it was a cheap lift at the time.

    ^^ Yes it is.... If you dont do any off roading and dont mined the stiffer ride. Then all is well. I just hated the ride, even onroad.

    It should raise it another inch or so. And, I loved my Revtek lift when I first got it. But over time it just rode stiffer and stiffer. So I descided to upgrade.
    And yeah, I had the one that had a 3" block in the rear, so it was 1" higher in the rear.

    Cant wait for some pics man!!!
