    Dude, they made the mistake. Why do you have to live with it. Send it back on their dime and get a refund.

    Buy 5100s now and never look back! There is someone selling a complete set for $300 shipped. Thats a great deal.

    You can set them at 3" of lift with OEM springs, but you limit the down travel of your strut b/c of the amount of preload you set. They will give you 3 in of lift, but you will only get 1 in of down travel.

    That didn't answer his question.......these forums are supposed to be helpfull not condecending.

    No the will not work ..you need to send them back and get the KIT you ordered for your vehicle.

    Ofcourse 5100's are a better but more expensive choice for a lift, but it all come down to what can you afford and what is your purpose of the lift.

    You don't want my truck. . . LOL. If you got it as a gift. Then make them pay for shipping it back and getting the right kit for your truck. It will not fit and was not made for your 2007. Honestly, if you can return it and get $$$ back. Do it, the 5100s are a better investment and down the road you'll thank TW for it. I've gone through enough to know whats best. You're just going to waste time and money as you'll more than likely remove it soon after install.

    haha this is getting funny, but back to the subject the only reason im ok with the truxxx is i have a brand new set of 285 trail grapplers. but ive done my fair share of reading on here so i know what i want. i have about 40 different trucks saved so i can take parts from each and build my truck. just need to quit blowing money and put it in my truck. but i realy do appreciate the help and the laughs
