This is what I'm looking at. I don't know anything about Thurne (I hope I spelled it right)

I'm looking at a suspension leveling kit. I will be putting 33's under it or possibly 35's.

95% freeway driving, I want a better ride. I do do alot of camping and hunting, so I do go off road but nothing major that the factory suspension can't handle, just want a little more clearance. I usualy go slow off road except for the occasional washboard that sneeks up on ya.

I know I can't go wrong with any of these lifts but want some real life feedback before I dump 1K on a lift.

I think that would be a little biased then wouldn't it?

I see that the majority that have voted have said other. Please list the manufacturer.

I got a Carli starter kit & Thuren Track Bar put on about a month ago. Absolutely love the way the truck rides & handles.

All the companies you mentioned make quality stuff and I've run Kore, Carli, Lorenz, and Thuren on my truck. Your best bet is to call Don Thuren and tell him what you are looking for. He is a great guy and will point you in the right direction. You tell him what kind of ride you are looking for, how you use the truck, and how much you are willing to spend, and he'll set you up. He fabs his own stuff but also works with other companies when putting kits together. After talking with him I ended up with Carli coils and sway bar links, his towers, control arms, track bar, and Lorenz DP rear leafs. He custom valved my shocks for the type of driving I do and was happy to spend time on the phone with me figuring everything out. I believe he now sells his own complete kits. He is a great guy and you will definitly get more for your money and I think end up being happier if you at least give him a call.

I voted Thuren Fabrication. I also recommend Carli Suspension. But if you have a special request or requirements Don's the one you should call.

The problem with Spirson is you need twice as much lift to get nearly the same travel as Thuren/Carli/KORE/Lorenz. And the fine print at the end of their video doesn't give me that warm fuzzy feeling.

that may be true but i would fell alot more comfortable with KINGS compared to fox..I am aware that the other companies off the kings but i havent heard any real negatives on their lifts..they might not be the baja kit the others are but they might be a real competitor in the future

I went with Lorenz for the shock towers, springs and misc parts. Directly to Sway-A-Way for shocks and bump stops.

ThurenFab and Carli both spec Kings. Lorenz uses Sway-A-Way and KORE uses Fox.

I have Lorenz's 2.25 Sway A Away and it's fantastic!!!! All fours tires off the ground at 100 mph (only about a foot off the ground, but what the heck) and it was like landing on a pillow!!!!
