    I just bought a 2013 Rock Warrior and would like to level it.After searching and reading,I have seen that most recommend 5100's set at 2 1/2 ins. and a one inch diff.drop kit.If I do this set up are there any issues I need to know about that might bite me in the a$$ down the road like CV boots,ball joints,steering components,allignment issues or computer problems?I am new on here and look forward to hearing recommendations and advice.Thanks in advance

    Just a few, more to come
    A leveling kit can and will accelerate wear on things like the CV boots and ball joints in the front, as well as potentially the steering rack/bushings/TREs. At 2.5" there shouldnt be alignment or computer/traction control issues.
    Any time you lift a vehicle you're introducing a new ride height that components were not designed to work at constantly therefore they wear faster. Also coming with the lift/level is likely larger and heavier tires, often with wider offset wheels which once again will add to the loads applied to components, thus causing them to wear faster.

    Are things going to fail every year, I doubt it. Most just lift their truck because they want to and deal with the accelerated wear when needed and upgrade the failing components when possible.

    I have the toytec ultimate bilstein 3/1 kit and @sean has the Boss 3/1 kit. We both are happy with our choice, last time I talked to him

    The BOSS kit is sooo much smoother than than the standard 3/1 kit @ToyTec Lifts offers.
