Want a complete leveling kit

I was doing some looking around and i was sold on purchasing the newton 2.5" leveling kit but now i hear that you can't use rear stock shocks and that you use the extension brackets up front? What's the truth? Are the extension brackets bad? I want to buy a complete kit or have a vendor put a complete kit together for me to insure that i get what i need.Thanks

Get a quality kit ..The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low cost is forgotten.

Caryt knows what he's doing so listen to his wisdom don't buy a cheap kit expecting the world . I don't have one but the icon leveling kit is raved about that would be my first choice you can get a kit complete even with larger rear blocks. many vendors on here check out there sites for the icon stuff.

Thats because to do it correctly which is new longer springs, shocks, castor shims and a adj track bar costs $$. '05's up you should also add a dual steering stablizer.

Icon is the way to go. I went with the 2.5" kit with the 4" blocks in the back, shocks, adj. track bar, etc. It's solid. Has a mean stance, and rides like a Caddy. I love it. Check out the pic in my signature.

You have any closer pictures of your truck? I have almost exactly the same setup and would love to see what it looks like with the lift. Also what size tires can you run with the Icon kit
