Leveling kit suggestions
 
Sorry in advance if this is a repost.

After reading multiple threads Im looking into getting the front of my ram leveled or close to it. I want to still have a little rake so I'm thing of a 2" leveling kit of some sort. I want something I can install myself and I'm not completely sold on the bilstiens yet.

So what do you have installed on your ram and how do you like it and have you had any issues with it. I don't want to worry about this product in the years to come failing.

I was looking at this kit but just wanted to see other options and opinions.

The bilsteins were the best thing I did...hands down

Ok after doing some searching since I posted my question I see this is a major repost.

I think I have made up my mind and I'm going to go with bilstiens. Looks like a great product and have heard nothing but good reviews. Now I just need to deside (so the wife doesn't get to mad) if I'm going to get the bilstiens first or a new mufflex exhaust system.

I will have to say that this forum is the best I have ever been on for information.

Do they mean that they are out of stock, or that they don't exist?

It looks like they dont have them for 2012 models

to the op: the bilstiens are struts and at some point all struts will fail. I went with a procomp 2.5" leveling kit and my truck still has a slight rake to it. If you want a level kit and rake then maybe the rough country kit is for you. It has a 2.5" front and .75" rear spacer. Front spacer won't fail unless you manage to break the metal spacer. The rear I'm not sure about. Most rear spacers I have seen were made of rubber or some type of rubber material. Either way at $129 it is cheaper then the Bilstiens and will last longer unless there is a craftsmanship issue.
