Help with leveling kit

I'm getting ready to buy the shackle leveling from Raul. I'm curious what everyone's opinion as to buying the shocks with it. My truck has 103,000 miles with all original suspension and about 2.7" sag in the front. This won't competely level it but will be much closer than it is now. Will maybe new shocks help level it more or not? Even if not should I still just put them on while i'm working on the truck?? Also, is this an easy enough install for someone with fair experience on a truck? Never worked on suspension before but it doesn't seem like this would be too bad to do. Any input works!

well in most cases shocks will not help to level thope truck. granted ones that are nitrogen chared have pressure on them may help with 50lbs on a 4000 pound front end.

bilstien did however just come out with a shock that does inded acctually help level your truck

If its a front leveling shackle kit im thinking it comes with two front shocks.

I would go ahead and buy shocks just to get a fresh new good ride when you do the leveling kit

PM Raul and he can answer all your questions
