2011 leveling Kit Problems

My local 4x4 shop just did a 2.5" ProComp leveling kit.
They said they have had issues on all of them pulling to the right.
They are said they had to shim it and add a steering damper??

Is this normal? I think he called it a steering damper. it's a twin cylinder thing that is supposed to help the truck not 'track' as bad.

Just never heard of any issues with just adding a leveling kit and bigger tires?

Thanks

I will be waiting for answers on this too, I was talking to them about the leveling kit plus a block in the rear. If it creates issues then I don't want to do it. It sucks there aren't 4" lift kits. (none that i've found at least)

Precision Metal Fabrications makes a great kit and he can make you any size you want. I'm pretty sure his name on here is NotStock. Just PM him what you want and he can get you some prices. I'm pretty sure i'm going to move up to his 4in kit from my leveling kit.

Did they install the track bar bracket?

THey ended up having to put a dual shock on the stabilizer bar in the front to keep it from pulling.
It took a lot of the stock feel out of it which was what I was going for.
Made the front end really mushy.
