Solution:When installing 4434 kits manufactured before July 2008, you must trim the lower leg of the U-bolt to eliminate a possible interference with the leaf spring. Leave at least 2 (two) threads of U-bolt showing after the nut has been torqued to the proper specification.

What our customers are saying:

Definately I will order from here again if I need anything. Not only was the service fantasic, the price was over welmed dirt cheap compared to so many others on the internet. The order was very professionally packaged and delv'd. I love this place. Definately I will be a returning customer.
