    Yeah, most people notice a 1'' raise in the back. ;) Completely normal. ;)

    EDIT: I got mine done a couple weeks ago, but still waiting for it to settle. :eek:

    It's probably an inch or so higher than before, but it will settle back to almost where it was.

    i keep hearing about people having trouble with this, i guess i just got lucky my dealership didn't give me any trouble at all, they didn't even look at the truck.
