Being that this would be my first endeavor in truck leveling a few red flags came up: First, I noticed Rough Country is the only manufacturer that sells this "spring only" leveling kit, everyone else sells spacers or pricey full kits with leaf packs, adj. trackbars, etc. which poses questions of reliability in that regards. Second, if i were to go with these springs would i need to upgrade shocks, bracket extensions, etc? Being that its only a 1.5" front lift im hoping it will be a simple spring swap and call it a day. What's your thoughts on a simple "spring only" kit over spacers?


-Thanks
I read a few reviews that had negative comments on the ride quality with those springs aka they don't call them Rough Country for nothing comments. Although, I've never owned them so I can't say whether it's true or not. My truck rides pretty nice with the the pucks, Bilstein's & new tires. I also added Airlift 5000XL bags to level the truck while towing, 5 psi empty & 30 psi towing.

As a follow-up I've towed my camper twice now, almost 500 miles & I'm happy. Eventually I may get around to installing front caster cams & relocating or replacing the track bar but for now it's working out great as is.
Not sure if I'm doing this correctly but, I'm curious why you are considering installing the caster cams and making a track bar adjustment if it's been great. When I read your first post I felt relieved that all that other stuff wasn't necessary for a 2" lift, but now you're saying you would make those additional mods in the future.

My truck is bone stock. No rubbing. There are 35x12x20.

New Kumhos are great....

Rider_02 Iím thinking of doing the same thing, but I think the dually sits lower and more level stock, so it would be nose high loaded. I already get flashed by people thinking I have high beams on

bigrobtemp Love the look of the 295/60/20 Toyo's on my leveled truck. They handle well and are quiet for a big tire.

roverjosh Hogbody, I like the Toyo AT2s as well. They are getting lots of support on this site. If I am get them cheap enough I will get them. The Kumhos just had such an atractive price... of course what is cheap up front may not be cheap down the road.....

Thanks for the info.
