UPDATE:

No problems with prototype endlink brackets. They are working perfectly. Also got some new rims and tires to help give it 1/2 inch more ground clearance. No problems on the dirt roads so far.

Very nice!

I also got my Northwoods coils installed on l 4 corners, very happy so far, with my new struts, mounts and links the whole vehicle rides better.

Putting my kit on the 2010 today. Taking the Readylift off is a pain, in the rear. Pictures to follow

Why did you decide to switch (out of curiosity)?

I’m curious about the ride quality and Northwoods wanted a 4.3 tester. I think that the Northwood kit is gonna be a lot better

It rides great with the V6 on the 4.3. I’m gonna make a video on this like I did for Readylift. Thus far the Northwoods kit rides waaaay better. The Readylift lift kit had an excessive amount of roll when turning and that is non existent with the Northwoods springs. Plus I don’t get as much squat when I have heavy stuff in the back, like my Great Dane.

Can't wait to see the video. Have been working my way through the threads and already watched your Readylift video earlier this afternoon - glad I kept digging and found this!
