    I have question about getting the truck level, the front seems to be lower then the back. Can I put on the Bisteins shocks with back at 0 and the front at at whatever it is to level it. I have the 16' rims. Thank you for your help in advanced.

    Rear shocks don't lift the vehicle so there is no setting them to 0. Search the site for info.

    I like the way the back height is now I just want the front to be up like the back, so it don't look like a dragster.

    All trucks come with "rake" where the rear is higher than the front, so that when the bed is loaded, the truck levels out.

    The cheapest way to level the truck out is to get some 5100s and set the front to the middle setting.
