Stock 2012 4wd 2500 level
 
Anyone have knowledge of leveling stock suspension without buying a kit, I had adjustable torsion bars on Z71. Not at all familiar with this beast!!!

Not that I'm aware of
 
But hey, a 2" front leveling kit is awful cheap, requires an alignment afterwords though. Assumes no warranty issues. (I haven't seen a warranty in years) R...

on my 2012 2500 i put leveling springs on it. i bought em from sdtrucksprings.com i believe it was 200$ easy way to do it . they replace your factory springs and wont void your warrenty at least thats what ram told me.

I did the same with the tuff truck springs from SD truck springs and a BD diesel adjustable track bar.

Had tuff spring on my old truck. I like them

A 3 inch lift levels out the truck perf. I got mine from ebay for $70 after shipping, and you can still use the stock shocks. After a $100 alignment you in. I've seen just the spacers go for more than that. Good luck

IMO leveling it by doing springs, shocks, and an adjustable track bar is the best option to level and HD truck.

Check out Top Gun Customz 2.5" progressive rate coils, Bilstein 5100 shocks and the BD Diesel adjustable track bar. That's what I'm thinking of putting on my 2012 3500.

Replacing the springs and shock are the way to go. No matter what lift method is used the adjustable track bar is a must if not the truck goes down the road dog legged.

On my 1500 i used Bilstein 5100's, They're adjustable... Not sure if they work for 2500s?

Nope, completely different suspension set up. To start the 2500/3500's are solid axle, not IFS like the 1500's. And they use a separate spring and shock rather than a strut assembly.
