Leveling kit
 
Which leveling kit is the best. I want the front as high as it will go without a body lift or suspension lift. Like to have the front higher then the back without lowering the rear and what size tires will fit with just a level?

bilsteins 5100 adjustables at 2.8" is ur best bet then. but it won't get your terribly higher than the rear.

any coil spacer over 2.5" will be disliked by your suspension geometry.

I wonder of putting the bilestein and a level kit would upshot to hard and destroy the ball joints

yeah dont do that.

I guess you want the cali lean. Not sure how people do that.

shoot buy a lift kit and only install the front. waste of $$ though.

Yea that's what I'm going for. I know big waste of money. Ill just do the level and see how it looks I hate the forward rake

Dont do this unless you plan on running the Bilsteins at 0.
There is no point to have both together as it defeats the purpose of Bilstiens which are a 2 in 1 kit (so to speak)
2.5" is already at the max and Bilsteins will settle down close to that mark after a week or so.

You can either do one or the other and I recommend Bilstein as it is stackable in case you ever want to throw a suspension lift on.
You cannot combine a standard leveling kit with a suspension lift. That is food for thought

If you need pricing on either a level kit or Bilsteins, fire us an email and we can provide member pricing

Exactly what Andrew said ^^

^ Exactly what they all said... The bilstiens are a real nice ride, I got them in the front to level out, and can notice my front rides a lot nicer then my rear leaf springs with 35" M/t's.

I highly reconmend Andrew if your gonna go ahead and buy a leveling kit or bilstiens, I got mine and my tires from him and have had excellent service from Bully's performance.

If I go with bilistiens what size tires can I run with them maxed at 2.5?

35x12.5

stock wheels: you need a 1/4" spacer

or buy offset aftermarket wheels

on rare occasions Ive seen guys squeeze 35s on with no spacers or anything. usually some good rubbing occurs
