Mine has the +6 kit on it, but I'm only using it for +4. I really like it, it makes it MUCH more stable in the turns. I didn't go all the way to +6 just because of the tight trails I sometimes ride. The kit seems solid though, I just make sure to check all nuts/bolts before every ride. I had heard of some people having things work loose.

only bad I know of is the tie rod extensions. Tend to bend alot easier than full tie rods. SOme have purchased a set of real plus 2 tie rods.
Also, you get bump-steer when full compressed, due to tie rods pivoting in a different spot than a-arms. In my opinion, If you ride really hard on rough surfaces, better options are out there. This is not a terrible option for the most part though.

i had a lowering and widening kit on mine and took it off, yea it made it more stable, and it looked sweet, but i felt like i got run over after a day of riding, it makes it sooo much rougher. not worth it in my opinion.
