Fabtech or Top Gun Customz leveling kit

Fabtech or Top Gun Customz leveling kit . The fabtech is only 2" leveling kit but is placed under neath the coil spring, not sure if im going to like that. i know these trucks are heavy. I also talked to top gun and he said there is a 2.5" spacer that goes on top of the coil spring. What do you guys think is best fabtech r top gun. I need the most clearance as possible. appreciate your opinions, thanks

ICON VEHICLE DYNAMICS Go with the DR leveling kit, it comes with new springs and shocks and a much better ride.

You might have a problem with the axle shifting due to your non-adjustable trac bar, so you may want to look into that. I'm running the spacer on top of the coil and I know my axle is centered, but it tends to "wander" when I'm driving down the road, so now I'm considering getting rid of my coil spacers and going with either a Bilstein or Icon leveling kit and an adjustable trac bar. Good luck.

WHOA i didnt think that icon leveling was that expensive. no way im paying that much for 2.5 inches., thanks anyway, how bout a track bar spacer you think that may fix the wondering axle you are haveing trouble with. i heard they sell these track bar spacers somewhere.

They do...and they work great...theres a guy on Ebay that makes tons of billet stuff...he makes the kits that are billet and go under the spring...he has the spacers you need to get your track bar right...they work...


Theres many ways to skin a cat....you dont always have to go by the book

kool thanks pahrump. I was also looking at icons website and came across some tei brackets that go under the spring. So if i install my 2.5" leveling spacers from top gun can i also put these 1" brackets from icon and get me another inch, cause my 35-14.50's are gonna be rubbing alot i think with just my leveling kit

ProComps leveling kit has a trac bar drop bracket and I was thinking of going that route myself but I don't want Procomp products on my truck. The best way to do it would to get an adjustable trac bar.

just an FYI, I had a skyjacker leveling kit without a trac bar bracket, in time I hit the 'death wobble' problem. Once I went to my 6" lift with trac bar drop bracket death wobble is no more and ride is much better.
