Mine took about 2 weeks to arrive. Trust me you won't regret it as it's an awesome price of kit that works really well. Now to just see the shock tower upgrade.

I got my kit installed what a night and day difference. Looking forward to the upright shock tower. It nice to be able to get high quality parts that are going to last. Keep up the great work.

Your bell crank system looks sweet. Clean, simple, functional. I look forward to seeing the shock tower version! Excellent work!!!

How about this! You have to use some shorter hardware to get everything to clear under the GMC front chassis. Awesome product! Zero slop, and helped with my binding issue too! Thanks a bunch Derwood!

Here is a top view! Pretty straight forward install. I used the Derwood top plate to mark the location of the holes, and just drilled them out. I used shorter screws on both of the turnbuckle ends to clear the lower part of the chassis. Hope this helps!

Got mine installed on my GCM shock mount. Works perfectly and is such a great mod. Thanks for making this man; the steering is so much tighter and has way more snap!
