Dually lift kits

I have been searching around for a lift for my 03 dually. I would really like to just level it out or possibly do a 4in lift. Most of the kits I'm finding say they won't work on a dually.

A lift for srw vs drw should be identical. The only drawback possibly would be rear springs because our trucks have higher capacity springs.
I kept my oem springs although I got new ones to be safe. I did not gain anything from the new springs.
I opted for 4in front hanger/shackle kit and adj track bar from pmf. I also went with bilstein 5160 shocks. Depending on stance desired, a 4in rear block with 4in hanger kit should make the truck look pretty level. 5in blocks make it look like a factory rake. I have pics posted in the dually pic thread

What size tires do you plan on running? And what wheels?
If you run 33's (285/295s) on stock wheels you should be able to just do a leveling kit iirc. Stance desired will determine what rear block to use.
X code springs will give you 2in lift for about $350 shipped. Hanger kits are around $300 I believe, or decent mini spring packs but those are at least $300 foe decent ones. Rear blocks can be found cheap. You'll probably want the oem 4in or pmf blocks

The DRW trucks have a larger diameter rear axle. So blocks and ubolts need to allow for this. Other than that, the trucks are the same as the SRW. If you would like us to put together a complete lift quote for you, just shoot me a pm!

I would like to run a 33 or a 35 on stock wheels. I like the looks of the stock wheels with a fairly aggressive tire. 4in is all I want to do. I don't tow a whole lot but use the bed enough I would like it at a manageable size. The rake it has stock is just killing my eyes. If you want to throw a quote together you can pm me a price.

You will need to get new rear ubolts. The ones in the kit are for a smaller axle. At least this was my case for my 2008 dually with a rough country 4 inch lift.
