I would just get the 2 inch coil spacers. They go on the bottom under the coil springs. Which will level your ride out. This is the cheapest way to level your truck.


Now the other way would be with 2 inch leveling springs and full leveling kit. This would be more expensive.

Either way would give you a good ride. The full leveling kit would probably give you a better then stock ride.

As for a leaving kit, you need a back pack with water, and survival supplies, You also need a good comfortable hiking boots. I understand that Chevy and Dodge offers these Leaving Kits to there new customers for free.

Yeah I wondered about the title of this thread...

If you're looking for a leaving kit, don't bother. Kick her out instead

Best kits for a '05 up will come with new coils, shocks, rear blocks if a F250, castor shims and a adj track bar. Best riding kits add 4 link arms.

FYI nothing at all is wrong with correctly made hanger kits for 99-04's.

If I can price out a kit for yours or if you have any questions please PM.
