Long term effects of RRO leveling kit

From talking to a few people and doing some research on leveling kits it appears that a leveling kit isn't the best option long term as far as wear and tear goes on a suspension. Was wondering what everyones opinions are on this.

I have put a leveling kit or suspension lift on every truck I've owned. Never had any issues with any leveled vehicle. Took them all past 120k miles. Now my wrangler and the extreme lift I put on it was very tough on the drive train.

I feel that with the way the GC's with the air suspensions work and the minute change in suspension height there shouldn't be an issue. Air lifted jeeps go well past the amount of lift the leveling kit provides and also lower creating other driveline angles in the opposite direction.

I guess only time will tell. But as of yet I've never had a problem with trucks I've leveled.

Re: Long term effects of RRO leveling kit

I would agree with fljeepleo, I've lifted all of my Four-by's and modded every other vehicle I've owned. My 2011 was by far the easiest lift/leveling kit that I purchased from RRO. The only thing I'd like to mention is to make sure you align it every 6 months or so, (FIRESTONE LIFETIME ALIGNMENT FOR UNDER 200.00)
