    Umm....I actually bought a set for my jeep and never installed them.

    Do some research....there are lots of pros/cons.

    I WOULD NOT put them on a daily driver / street vehicle. The only way I'd put them on, is if you can LOCK THEM DOWN in a standard shackle configuration for street usage.

    If you brake too hard or corner too hard - those things can open up and possibly cause a really serious accident. Also - while offroading when going down a steep grade, they can open up and possibly put the cab of your truck over your head. It's hard to explain.....

    Again - I WOULD NOT put them on a street vehicle.

    Honestly? They give you a lot of flex. Whoooppee..... Get yourself a rear locker and you won't need the extra flex.
