leveling kit options..

hey guys im trying to figure out what leveling kit to buy, i have airbags in the rear now for my fifth wheel toyhauler so i would like to just buy a leveling kit that doesnt need rear blocks so i dont have to mess with airbags. what companys sell kits for just the front that doesnt need to lift the rear to be level. i could always pump up the bags a little bit if it wasnt level but i think the ride would suck with couple extra pounds in there. any ideas? thanks Cory

Pucks and brackets have no business on our trucks. I would NOT put ready lift products on my truck. I would look at Icon or Carli.

Just like Laing said before, look at Carli very close. If you want the smoothest riding and most durable setup look at the Carli 2.5" setup with King shocks. Here is the link.......

You are absolutely correct. For $3,000 you can buy a sub-standard 6 inch "kit" with worthless shocks that makes your truck ride like a dump truck and a block for the rearend that will make axle wrap unbearable. Or you can spend $3,000 on a suspension system that rides as smooth as a car and maintains factory towing capacity. Which is what the op is looking for. Carli is one of the most recognized and praised companies in the industry because they are simply the best option for suspension products on a full size truck. You get what you pay for and who wants to skimp on a $50,000 vehicle. I have run their product on multiple vehicles and I have also gone the cheap route on past vehicles. The differences are indescribable in terms of quality, durability as well as ride comfort. Spending that type of money isn't for everyone, I was just showing the op another option.

I agree...you get what you pay for here. I personally would never use the cheap puck leveling kit option on my new truck. Did it on my 150 and the ride was pure crap...never again. You have to realize that all a puck does is add a spacer above your shock, changing the angles of your stock suspention up front....can't be healthy for the truck and downgrades the ride and hadling of the truck. Save up and do it once...you're just going to end up spending the money to do it eventually anyway.

That's what I bought. Then just buy a trac bar and a pair of shocks and you are done.
