    hi guys well i was originally looking at a 3inch suspension lift then decided to not get a liuft at all. then i saw these http://www.suspensionconnection.com/cgi-bin/suscon/52901T.html

    leveling kit? so this just raises the front 2 inches wont that make the truck uneven?

    i was just wondering that the deal is...if i did a 2 inch leveling kit would my truck still look "even" from back to front?

    Thanks
    wolfgang

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    I was on the same boat as you and decided on coilovers > spacers. There was to many factors whether a simple spacer type leveling kit will level my truck. Driver side lean, sagging and etc. In the end I choose coilovers to compensate for that kind of factors. I would think if it is a 2" leveling kit for the front would level it w/ the stock rear.

    blue led headlights, 285/75/16 grabber AT2's, custom pedals, custom shifter, flowmaster 40 series muffler, bedlinered fender flares, 2.5" lift kit via shackles and spacers, custom exhaust out the back, chrome exhaust tip, and Herculined bed, Weathertech floormats, Cabelas Trail Gear Camo Seat Covers ... Nice thing was I got the truck for $4000
    another possible little lift is a larger leaf spring shackle---a shackle that is 3 inches bigger than the stock one will give you approx. 1.5 inches of lift, then in the front run 2 inch coil spacers and this will level it out quite nicely

    i went here to get my 3" coilspacers. The truck sits prerunner and looks good too. Its a cheap way to get your truck in the air. I love mine, rides great and easy install.
