Leveling Kit

Ok so whats everyones opinion on a leveling kit is it better to use a spacer like ready lift or a spring kit like the Bilstein Bts. Just gonna run some 18's with 35" goodyear duratracs, so I want to level the front and put a larger block in the back with some bilstein 5100's. Anyone have the bts kit what does it make the truck sit like pictures appreciated. Thanks


Heres the link to it. You can get the kit with the two front shocks for $350

comes with new coils... that's nice.....i just did a Fabtech level lift, it was spacers and 4 new shocks......i honestly don't think anyone could really tell the difference in ride form any of these level lifts.....all the shocks are going to pretty much feel close to the same.....i think its really about what you like or think looks cool....imo....i painted my new white shocks black and used red boots to match my paint scheme,. i have dual stabilizers with the silver bilsteins and black boots as well

Have you looked into the Icon 2.5 leveling kit? I just put this kit on my truck and it is awesome the ride is great rides like stock. I had spacers on my truck before and the ride sucked. Plus with the Icon kit you get the castor cams.

I have had the kit on for about 7 months and it works good. It still rides pretty good. My truck will never drive like a cadilac because of my front bumper, but it rides pretty good. For the price I consider it well worth it. Icon is nice and rides amazing, but the price tag is not worth it in my mind for just a leveling kit.
