Lift Kit

Is there anybody on here I can talk that knows where I could find a mild lift kit for my truck, like 2-4 inches or maybe a leveling kit?

Do you want new springs? If you want a leveling kit you can try a shackle lift prety inexpensive compaired to a lift kit.Sky's Off-road Design - Home Look around on this site or I think Raul from stealth can help you out he is a vendor on here.

Probably just a leveling kit. I have a question though, is it just me or do my front leaf springs look straight? They aren't curved at all. It's like the motor and such is too much weight or something.

They are. Before my lift mine were curved but the wrong way. You would think the engineers would have put atleast 3 springs under there. Theres nothing wrong with a shackle kit for the cost but you will still be using the stock springs. What size tires are you wanting to run?

Yeah, mine look like an arch instead of a U. I would imagine that cuts down on the comfort of the ride. Yeah, I've always wondered why they didn't put at least 3. I'm only wantin' to run 285/75/16 and thats what I have on there now, just don't too much care for the nose dive look, lol. I just hate to spend money, lol especially when I could just sneak a 2 inch block under there instead.

I hear ya. Shackles might be the best way if you are looking to get off cheap. Please dont put blocks in the front. It just dont seem very safe to me.
