    I have a dozen or more track days maybe even twenty on mine and no cracks. If they put up with that you should have no issues with street use.

    +1 I've been running mine since 2012 - the original version, not the ones with the reinforcement - and have had no issues. Whenever can easily get under the truck (oil change, rotate tires) I'll do a quick visual inspection with the light on my phone to look for cracks or bends. I don't drive my truck much though so that may also come into play (2006 with only 78k).

    Hi guys I have another question and I'm posting it here just because it seems like there's a good group of people on this post that has knowledge of lowering kits... so as u know from my recent postings I went with the xii street kit instead of the djm.... I found that my u bolt bolts keeps coming loose. Are the torque specific to different brands or all the same.. what are specific torque specs for the u bolt bots. I tightened mine down to 80lbs... and it's coming loose is that to little? Thank you guys.

    I just tightened mine down good and tight, no particular spec, and added a little blue thread lock. Never had any problems.

    Good to know. Then my next question is how do you like the truck being lowered ? Do you know the spring rate ? Are you happy with the set up ?
