    Im thinking of doing the hell bent steel leveling kit until I have the funds for my mt setup and was just wondering if anyone had any pics with a leveling kit. Also they have a 2.5" kit and a 3" kit, does the half inch really make a difference?

    None!
    I bought the hell bent steel spacers back in the day. I ended up not installing them and buying Eibach springs. (1.6 inches of lift to level my truck)

    spruce with 285 on stock rims you nee to run .5 in spacer at least to clear the upper control arm, like beavis said, I went that route for a few days before I had new rims.

    For those that have the Hell Bent Steel spacers, do you think the 2.5" spacer for 05-15' fit on a 2016 strut? I called and asked but the lady told me they have not installed one on a 16' yet so she can't guarantee fitment. She did however say that she had customers tell her they did work on their 16'. What do ya'll think?

    I have a 4" spindle lift but looking to go to 6.5" so I need the spacers. I changed out my stock struts for Billy 5100s.
