    Ok, I bought a set of the OEM Bilstiens with a 2" RevTek spacer (spacers just happen to be on there, was not really looking for them). My prerunner sits about 2.5" nose down compared to the rear. Just put them on...and it sits way nose high even after driving around the block. Not gonna work as it looks dorky.

    Not exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted to level things out. So just what size spacer does level things out?:confused: The 1"??

    I really don't want to go back out there to undo what I just did...but it looks like I am .:(

    whew...it's only about 105 heat index outside right now...

    Just got done swapping them back out. I am going to pull the 2" spacers out. Forgot to add, there is also a 1/4" spacer in there as well. Like I said, these came this way.:notsure: I'll put the Bilsteins sans 2" spacer back in but keep the 1/4" one. That'll be good. On a plus note...It only took a fraction of the time to do it this time around. First one was a learning curve, but now it's a piece of cake.

    Anyone want to buy a set of RevTek 2" spacers?:D

    Not looking to raise it...then I'd have to get bigger tires...different UCA...:lalala: I just want it more level is all.

    With just the 1/4" spacers, it's not bad. I swapped them over to the stock struts when I put it back together to see if there was much difference. Not much, but there is a difference. Definitely better than without. Won't need much more actually. I'll ride like this for a bit while I get the spacers removed from the Bilsteins and see if it will do. It just might.
