leveling kit questions
 
I have a 2009 ram 1500 2wd slt. I want to put a front leveling kit on it. After watching some youtube videos, it looks like all i need is a strut spacer? So i contacted my local 4wheel parts to set up a appointment to have this installed. They told me that i would need a longer shock to do this? Any help is much appreciated, i am new to trucks, so be gental.

you can buy bilstiens adjustable shocks or just put spacers on the top of your existing strut.

contact the guys at discount auto performance -- they are a site member -- look at the top right of the page for there advertisement.
