Leveling kit question

How important is it when you raise the front 2.5 inchs to get a adjustable pan rod to center front axle? How much out would this 2.5 inch put it out and what are the negatives with not having front axle center? Thanks for you'r input in advance Shawn

You will look like your driving down the road crooked if its not centered. It will be about 3/4" off center if im remembering correctly.

Load assist air bags are the answer for towing and hauling for trucks that sit level.
