2003 Rough Country 2.5" Leveling Kit Price
 
Who has the best price on a 2.5" leveling kit? I'm wanting to go with the new spring pack because mine seem a little worn out. I'm kind of pressed for money since I will be getting new wheels and tires as well (current tires are getting close to bald). I'm military as well, so if they have a discount on top of their price that would be great! RC has it for $449 on the website. Thanks for the help!

I have a 2wd 2005 and I bought 2.5 leveling spacers for the front that fit below the stock springs and brings it up.

Mine were $50 off ebay haha. Have them for over 20,000 miles and no problems

i know you said money was tight, but i hate to see you drop the coin on this setup only to have it sag very soon, and have tire clearence issues. look for a better kit, deaver, or x codes with a shackle lift

Are the shackle kits really the preffered way to go? I know the price looks much better, but would think it would ride as good in the long run as new springs.

shackles may not be the best, but if your springs are good the key to a good ride is more travel. giving clearence between bumpstops. the higher a lift with a spring but a arc to the spring that at point XXX it hinders compression and ride will start to suffer even more.

the best way is to swap axles from an 05-07 and go coils.

How much time n money you think that would run? Never even looked that route before.

You live in a much better town now. Im not a huge fan of Belleville.
