Re: 4\" TrailMaster lift
The only drawback to lifting the truck that I can think of is this: When you get the lift,tires, and wheels..and lay your lump of money up on the counter...the guy on the other side will stick out his hand and then draw it back...and the money will be gone..hee hee hee. But, you wil have what ya wanted. As far as the ball joints go, I believe that Trailmaster comes with the TRW (?) ball joints...at least at one time they had them in the kits. They are supposed to be better than the stockers. To be honest with you, I never really look at new kits, or their ads anymore so maybe someone else may know if they still include them in the package. If not, most shops will include it in the parts/labor (just make sure you ask). As far as brakes, they won't be as good as they were stock. You will feel a slight difference...but nothing major. I have pulled trailers w/ heavy equipment without any problems before. In fact, I don't feel a difference anymore. My wife thinks there is a difference between my truck and her Tahoe but I guess I'm just used to it.
