    You may want to consider some other lift options: Bilstein 5100s, OME, Etc.

    I'm not looking to buy this set up, but it just seems way cheap compared to anything else that is similar.

    you mean USED to be $400. They marked it down to $70.

    Which is pretty much the price of ONE stock shock.

    I have heard that Procomp kind of sucks...$400 is still kind of on the cheaper side for a full suspension lift...but I don't see how they could charge $70 for the kit. That's a freaking steal. Must be a typo.

    Buy it. Resell it on craigslist.

    ahhh. I'm the one who's the noob. Sorry, I guess I was looking for an actually cheap price considering the product when I saw the title to the thread.

    Yeah, for $400, you get what you pay for.

    Man, that threw me off for a second as well. I was going to say the lift kit was $69 but they would charge you $350 to ship.

    It's broken in. Its been on the truck since it came out last december. Granted I dont have ucas on there. That might help out a little bit. Plus I want more lift. Haha who doesnt though right? Its good to get started with but I dont want it on the truck anymore and Im currently looking at different things. But find someone who has the same lift and is using ucas with it. Maybe their ride and opinions differ than mine. Plus when I called with questions when I first installed the lift the guys over at procomp were no help and told me that everything I was experiencing was bs. That I should have a better shop install it. They shutup real quick and said that they couldnt help me when I told them that my friend who works at 4wheel parts helped actually did the install. So their customer service kinda left a bitter taste in my mouth and probably a placebo effect as to how crappy i think it rides
