Can I add a leveling kit if I have a 6" RCX installed?
 
Anybody know if I can add a leveling kit if I have a RCX 6"lift installed? I had my truck leveled before I did the lift, after the lift, it's high in the back again. Or, can I add 5100 series bilsteins to level it out?

Any suggestion, brands, opinions are welcome!

If it's a preload spacer leveling kit yes you can. You can add bilstiens, but keep in mind wth the RCX lift it's technically already a 1" leveling kit up front.

The way my truck sits now, the front is 2.25 inches lower than the rear measuring at the wheel wells. So would the 5100 Bilsteins in the front be the best way to go?

Numerous people are running Bilsteins with that lift to make them level.

I have the RCX 6" with the bilstein 5100s set to 1.4" and my truck is dead level with the illusion of being front end high because the way the fenders are cut.

I would just leave it if I were you with some rake. Now I am adding 1.75" rear coil spacers to give it rake again so that it looks proper :D

Theres really not a best way to go, just a more wallet friendly way! I have the Revtek preload spacers sitting in a closet if you want em...

True story. I had that setup but with .75" rear spacers and it was darn level.

many users use bilsteins with the rcx kit, set them at 1.4 and that truck would look very level untill you put a tape on it, check them out Bilstein 5100
