Leveling kit for the 2wd's!!!!!!
 
I have a 2012 ram 1500 2wd, Im looking for a good quality leveling kit for my truck, please give me some suggestions, and if you have the same truck and have one installed please give me your input on the product you purchased. (Please include info for the products you suggest, and pics would be great too)

options for 2wd are rather limited. I think they are almost all like this:

I'm not sure how well they work. I had a polyurethane spacer on my f150 and it feel like it just squeezed out over time and settled back down. (like over a year or two).

Thanks for the info, I got some more info from CST and it shows they sell a 3" and 2" coil spring spacer.

CSE-C16-4 - 3" LIFT COIL SPACER

CSE-C16-2 - 2" LIFT COIL SPACER

Which one would be the correct one for my truck, and if I install one of these coil spacers, do I have to change any other components of my suspension like shocks or anything??

I would only go 2" . it'll save ur geometry angles and no you won't need any other parts

I actually purchased the 3" CST coil spacer. Then talked to CST and they said it's too tall for the 1500 and to only go with the 2" spacer. So for now it looks like I'm returning it for the 2" spacer.

Installed 1.5" daystar on my 2012 ,,, could have gone with 2 or 2.5 as rear still sits 1" higher ..... However Installed 275/65/20 ,34" and they fit perfect so I'm happy ;) Wheel well at 38 " from and 39 " back

I actually spoke with them aswell and they told me the correct one was part #: (CSE-C16-4) which is the 3" spacer which I agree would be too much of a lift, I would like to purchase the 2" spacer (CSE-C16-2) so let me know how it goes for you, also let me know if the geometry angles were not drastically changed causing the issue of wearing out the rest of the suspension faster or the need for new shocks with the 2" lift. And maybe some before and after pictures and measurments would be great too!!!!!!!

CST Part #'s:

(CSE-C16-4) - 3" LIFT COIL SPACER

(CSE-C16-2) - 2" LIFT COIL SPACER

I'm waiting to hear if the shop can get the 2" spacer. I'll definitely take measurements and pics and keep you posted.

Damn! Heard back from the shop. They've done the 3" spacer on the same truck many times w/o issue. They said I can send it back for the 2" spacer, but this is what drives my wife crazy. I tend to take things to the extreme. DOH! Sooooo tempted. I'll keep you posted.
