2.5 Leveling Kit Questions

Alright so I am looking at leveling my truck off with a 2.5 kit. Anyone have pictures or advice on what to get? Thanks!

I've been looking at the tough country ones. You can get one with front shackles or spend a little more and get front leafs

Your going to get like 10,000 different responses. It's all preference. I have a 1-1/2 on the front now and am sitting 1/2 inch nose high. When I need new tires, I am going 2-1/2 on the front and 4" blocks in the rear. Look at newton lifts. Google them for there address. They have great reviews and make a good lift in my book.

Tuna fish would be hard pressed to find shackles let alone leafs on the front end of his truck.

You should at a minimum get caster shims, adjustable trac bar, new coils (pucks are for suckers IMO), and an alignment after everything is installed.

I asked this about a week ago and many people recommended using rough country 2.5" leveling springs.

Bilstein makes a good looking front end kit. Not that much if I recall. Like 300? Shocks and coils.

I'm running the procomp 62666 kit on my truck and it was the best bang for my buck that i found. It comes with steel spacers, trac bar relocation bracket, shock extenders, bump stop extenders, and a rear driveshaft spacer (idk why, i didn't use it). I paid like 280 for it with free shipping.
