Before and After Pics please.
 
Is there anyone out there that can give me some before and after pics when putting a 2" leveling kit on a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500? I'm always picky about spending money on my truck. Thanks

Please let me know if you can't view them for whatever reason. Mine is a 2004 and I did the lift with the torsion bars, but it's pretty much the same thing.

Thanks man that's what I was looking for. I needed that cause I was a little stingy about spending $150 on a leveling kit.

I used the Fat Bob's 2" leveling kit which is polyurethane spacers. Love it ride quality is just like factory. I think I spent $200 on the spacers, new shocks, installation, and alignment.

Yea thats where im getting mine from. But mine is the 2" spacers and the nitro 8000 series shocks bundle. It's $150.00 for them both. And i can get them installed for free. Just got to get the alignment afterwards.

I have raised mine by turning up the torsion bars,what kind of shocks should I put on it? Need something longer I would imagine.Any suggestions.I don't off road just want a facory or better ride.

Same here. Cranked the bars a little. I only got about 1-1/4" lift by measurement but it looks like more than that by eyeball. I have read several threads about longer shocks but haven't found a definitive answer yet. One recommendation I saw was to talk to the folks at 4 Wheel Parts. They are supposed to be able to look up your application and find you shocks that will be X amount longer or shorter than stock. I haven't bother because I am actually considering lowering mine back down and lowering the rear to match.
