performance accessories seems to be the most popular one. its what i have. the quality of parts are great and yes, good instructions. as far as durable, several years on my ride and no problems..all brackets are in good shape.
suspensionconnection.com has good prices.
i just picked one up from them for my f150 ( i know, i know) for 145.00 shipped.

The body mount bolts is where you can run into the biggest problems.
if you soak them with pb blaster a couple of days out each day it will help. I did mine by myself in a day. From 7 am till 11 pm type of day. No breaks. Its not hard to do...just double check each step before you move on.

Alright sweet I guess Ill start soaking now hopefully have the lift within a month or so. im getting the performance accessory model 152 but I am not going to lift my rear bumper because I dont have a tow hitch and I need to tow my snowmobile trailer and it says in the directions not to tow anything with the bumper relocation brackets on.....sooo ill make some kind of gap guard for now.
Thanks Again!
