leveling kit??

hey how yall doin
finally cut my muffler off this weekend. im runnin straight pipes and lovin that sound!! now i have another question. i want a leveling kit but have no idea on which one to buy. i have around 350 bucks to spend but wouldnt like to spend ALL of it on a leveling kit, but it doesnt matter. i looked at a 2" kit made by rancho maybe?? i cant remember but it was only like $75. i talked to a rep at the place call TopGunCustomz out of TN and one rep said that it would only raise it 1.5" and i need at least 2". any suggestions on what kind to buy??thanks!

sam

Tuff country has an add-a-leaf kit that is inexpensive. Pro-comp offers a shackle drop front leveling kit, but that would take a chunk of that 350. I have sold the Pro-Comp kits with no complaints, but I have installed the Tuff Country kits and they work nice. Plus the price is good.
