Suitability of product for application: Purchasers understand that installing car lift kits is complex and sometimes involve customizations to the products and vehicles. By purchasing products from this website, users agree that they will not dispute the functionality or description of the product when it does not work for their custom application. It is the responsibility of the person installing the product to determine the suitability of the component or kit for that particular application. You, or the person who does the installation must know how to properly use this product. During the checkout process, there is an entry that asks for your vehicle’s make, model and year. This information is for our internal use only and does not guarantee that the product(s) you are purchasing will fit that particular vehicle. In order to ship out our packages as quickly as possible, we do not verify the vehicle data that you entered is acceptable for the product(s) you are purchasing. If you are not sure if a particular product fits your vehicle, it is essential to call or email us to verify suitability before placing the order. It is not possible over the phone to understand or foresee all the issues that might arise in your installation. For this reason, we request all technical support be handled via email by providing us pictures of your vehicle’s suspension and the parts you received from us. Suspension equipment must be maintained and should be checked regularly for fatigue, damage and wear. Due to OEM production differences and other variations from vehicle to vehicle, the fastener hardware and other components of this kit may not be suitable for a specific application or vehicle. It is the responsibility of the purchaser and installer to verify suitability / fitment of all components and ensure all fasteners and hardware achieve complete and proper engagement. Not all installation shops are qualified to install aftermarket suspension components. We are unable to offer refunds due to your installation shop not knowing how or refusing to install your suspension kit. We are happy to provide you with a list of qualified experienced installation shops in your area. If you would like the name and number of a qualified installation shop, please contact us for more information.
Specific fitment guidelines: Due to the large amount of sizes and combinations, UCL does not guarantee specific rim or tire fitment on any application. It is the customer’s responsibility to verify rim fitment. Some rims will not be compatible with our kits including rims with too high of offset. Stock rims may not work if the rim diameter is too small or the factory rim has a high offset. You can correct most rim fit issues by using a wheel adapter or a wheel spacer. We do not include the wheel spacers with the kit and they must be purchased separately if needed. Our technicians will never guarantee a particular rim to fit. They will only make suggestions based off feedback from other users. We highly recommend measuring your vehicle accurately to ensure a proper fit. We can not accept returns if your parts are not suitable due to fitment issues with the wheels and tires.
Off-road use only: Our products are designed for off-road use only. The end user bears all responsibility for use on a public roadway.
