no, when i built the truck the bolt in cups were not available. i just took a piece of tube and made some cups. nothing done to the tierod or UCA. at one point i was going to flip the tierod so it didnt toe in while riding low but i figure if i go through another set of tires i will HAVE to buy the Ekstensive kit...self motivation

Its my friends truck that we did. The kit is simple to install, and works great for the ride hight the pinion is setup for. No vibrations and rides good. He uses the truck for work and tows a little single axle box trailer with his tools in it for work everyday that wieghs about 4500lbs with no problem. The front kit is awsome, lil to no camber and no bumpsteer

The only thing about the ekstensive notch is they grind down the welds to much, it cracked a lil on one side when we slid it over the frame so we had to fix that, and the filler plates they cut for the notch dont fill the gap up all the way so that was a pain in the ass too.

I just need help bagging my truck. lol I have never messed around with the systems.. just regular drops. Any step by step guide out there? I know kp makes the bolt on kit for the rear. But I'm not sure about the front. I guess I have to relocate everything under my hood. I feel like thats going to be a pain in the ass.. I guess the nbs and nnbs have the same rear end because i can't find a kit online that says "rear end kit 07+" it just goes up to 06'..

KP doesn't make a kit for 07+ we are just taking the kit for the 00-06 and modifing it to fit. It doesn't bolt on either you will have to take off your welded front hanger and weld or drill holes and bolt on the kp front bracket. The rest of the kit does fit as kp intended though. You are also going to have to weld in a notch no matter what you use. Can you weld? or have access to a shop that can and you trust?

make your own wishbone 3link. no need for panhard or watts link and it'll ride good and you can setup your own lift ratio.

man there is so much talk about that.the guys that have it love it the ones that dnt have all the reasons why not to have it.im in the middle with it i rly dnt no .i think it is ok and its freeken easy to do but i do think the kp is better but verry pricey.and then some say they wont buy another kp set up .me im still debating on wat i want .i no im going to run the eke front setup just not sure on back yet.but i did see something about the pinion angle and the kp will keep it better allined threw out the up down movement.so that has to be better off if your going to ride at different hights.
