? about Zone 2.5" suspension level kit

Hey guys,

I wanted to get your opinions on this level kit from trucktoyz. I currently have a 2.5" mini spring pack from Icon and track bar relocation bracket, not adjustable and a drop pitman arm.

Is an adjustable track bar a better way to go? Would an adjustable track bar help make it easier to get the steering wheel straight? Do you guys think those leaf springs are quality? Thanks.

Thanks

I just bought the zone 2.5 with the long spring pack. I am waiting for Easter weekend when I'm off work to install. But the springs look and feel heavy duty. I am happy with how all the parts look and feel that came with the kit.

I bought the rough country one. Mine came with the relocation bracket. You can adjust that arm cuz my father and I did my steering wheel is straight. The one I got is $250 shipped and everything you need is there. Btw if you buy one make sure you take the arm off first or everything won't line up rit and you will play hell putting the leaf packs in trust my lol.

I can take some pics later and show you mine installed on the truck. It has good ride quality still but a little stiffer but it's just right if you ask me. All in all more than happy with my buy on this one. I would buy it again if I had to.

Btw the kit actually brought it up about 3" not 2.5"

Thanks. I already have shocks and the drop track bar bracket. The zone fits what I'm looking for cuz I want new leaf springs and an adj track bar instead of the bracket. Then hopefully I can put my stock pitman arm back on and sell the drop bracket and the drop pitman arm.

Track bars only locate axle side to side "center" it to truck frame. Steering wheel centering is done with adjustment on drag link coming from pitman are to tierod bar. A adjustable track bar is nice because alignment tech can adjust for dead center before he sets toe.

YOur going to want to keep your drop pitman arm on, unless ur going back to stock ride height. The drop bracket isnt need if u get a adjustable track bar.

Thanks oilfield. Was just hoping I could ditch the pitman arm with the adj track bar. No big deal.
