    Installed this morning. Too easy! Love the stance, love a kit that works perfectly the first time. No mods.

    Looking good. What's your opinion on the difference in ride quality vs stock?

    She's driving pretty well. Going to take her in for an alignment this week. Front end feels the same. The tail hits a little hard on bigger bumps/potholes/manholes. Seattle streets are a little rough. It's been wet here so I haven't thrown her around or pushed her through corners. Her tail comes out really easy in the wet. I should have replaced the shocks while under there. Pretty sure those are the original Bilsteins. Really could use a full set of sways.
    It does however look wicked cool.

    Yeah, the rear has me concerned a bit. I'll probably add QA1s to the rear when I do my drop.

    I was in Seattle last month and ya those streets are rough. I have the full kit with sways. It's really flat in the corners. I will say the sways complete it and the rear qa1's are the only way to go.

    I'm looking for stock leaf springs for my 2005 X-Runner. Do you now have some to sell? If so, I'm at bto4748@aol.com or 678-570-3986. Brian

    XII Perfomance Street Drop consists of drop coils and blocks for the rear. He's likely riding on his stockers. Email sent

    I like the look...it just looks "right." Other drop kits I've seen don't center the wheel/tire in the fender openings (usually lower), but that kit looks almost perfect.

    Looking to pull the trigger on this kit my self. What's the overall drop in the middle of the truck? I can't get in my driveway if it's too low.

    Is that the stock tire size or do they have a taller sidewall?

    I have been thinking about doing this since I am on 20" rims and dont feel like spending the money on the DJM drop do you think wheel gap will be small with 20s?

    Hey I went with this kit as well after coming across yours and other post of different drop kits. It's awesome I love it and was pretty easy to install... I've come across one problem though and was wondering if it has happened to you guys... my rear U bolt bolts is coming loose and starts to squeak. I've noticed the first time it was so lose was only around 20lbs torque lol.... I then torque it to 80lbs I saw on some forums 90lbs was max and some other forums 150lbs is maxed. I'm not sure about our truck. And it has come loose again.. does this happen to you guys and do u know exactly what torque lbs is required for these u bolt bolts. Thanks

    Make sure you're using a wire brush or better yes a bench grinder with a wire wheel to clean the threads. Sounds like you may not actually be getting them torqued. Maybe hitting some grit. Either that or your u-bolts are stretching. Maybe a little loctite next time.
