SuperLift review.

Anyone with a superlift, whats your opinion about the lift?
Does it burn out any seals, joints such as u-joints, wheel bearings?
Im pretty much lookin to get peoples facts about there super lift and see if they tend to wear out and break anything.
Also state how you lifted the rear, and how safe you think the lift is.

thanks.

Well Evan you have been around my truck for the most part since its been lifted and have had no issues with the lift. The installation was easy as you and Zach know, no issues with any seals or bearings right now. The pinion angle was the only thing that I really ran into issues with, I have that corrected now with add a leaf, stock blocks and chevy drop shackle. I really like the lift itself and have no complaints with stability on or off road.

The sway bar links are by far the weakpoint of the kit. And they're not even weak, just poorly designed to make a ****-ton of noise. It's STRONG bracketry, as my roll-over shows. It's easy to put together, affordable, and gives an AWESOME stance. I'd definitely buy another one. Especially if I could somehow make my own sway bar links for it.

The kit comes with blocks that have already been shimmed for the proper pinion angle. I never had problem with axle wrap or anything with the extra blocks, but it was always on my to-do list to replace them. I never got around to it. In all honesty, I had the lift on for about 12k miles and never even had a problem with my front driveshaft, so I think it's a fantastic kit.

There aren't THAT many. Only other ones I can think of off the top of my head... FlyinFX4 (truck is totalled... had the lift for a few months maybe?) and blkout, who is trying to sell his truck I think. Try looking some stuff up for the kit. I remember finding a review written by someone who had an explorer and put the superlift kit on it. Gave a pretty good run-down of the kit too. Really though man, you won't be disappointed with your purchase! It's a great kit, and very solid.
