Levelling Help ?
 
I have a 2013 Dodge ram sport 1500 and im looking at getting a levelling kit for it . I am leaning towards the day star 2.5' front and 1" in the rear. Has anyone done this ? Is there much difference? Can anyone reccomened anything else? Thinking of going 20" rims with 35" tires.

If anyones done this and has pictures please post. Thanks alot ?

Hi, there are many options. Daystar is one, or readylift as I believe you're looking for one with a rear coil spacer as well?

You can also run Bilsteins....many choices out there.
Let me know if we can be of assistance :smileup:

I definitely recommend running the Bilsteins on the front to level your truck rather than a spacer. They are a little more money, but definitely worth it. It's a much better way to level and will give you better ride quality all said and done. Then you can also add Top Gun Customz rear coil spacers later on if you want some height in the rear as well.

The best thing to do to know how much of a leveling kit you will need and weather or not you will need a rear spacer is to go measure your truck now. Not all trucks come exactly the same from the factory. Some are slightly different in height. Measure your fender heights front and back to determine your rake. Then find out how high you need to go on the front to level it. Keep in mind that you want to retain at least 0.5" of rake to avoid looking nose high.

If you want to see some pictures similar to the set up you're looking at check out my wheel/tire thread linked in my signature. I was running a 2.5" leveling kit with 0.75" rear spacers and 20x9's with 35x12.5's.

And as Andrew said above, if you need pricing shoot him an email. He will hook you up with the best pricing on anything you need for your truck.

^ These 2 are the ones to talk too. I am running the Bilstiens 5100 Adjustables with 35/12.50/17 Toyo M/T's and love the ride.. Absolutely worth it and I personally beleive it is much better then coil spacers. Bilstiens also work with a lift kit if you plan on jackin er up in the future.
Brandon and Andrew both have/had 4th gens 1500's and have done the same approach and know the best methods for leveling. Andrew at Bullys performance will offer a great price and excellent customer service. Got my bilstiens, tires, rims and some other mod parts from him.

Yeah rims and tires ain't cheap.. But as said.. you gotta pay to play. I did plenty of research on what I want, and the best price I was able to get was through Bully's.. It is something that is well worth the money.

For sure, no problem in doing it one step at a time. I was running a leveling kit for about 5-6 months before I could get my new wheels and tires on there. That's just how it goes.

As the two guys above said (and Andrew before that) send an email to Bully's Performance (sales@bullysperformance.com). Be sure to mention that you're a forum member and then tell them what you want and they'll send you a quote with some great pricing. I saved about $1000 ordering my wheels and tires through them rather than buying locally.

I just noticed you're from Vancouver as well. When you do order online I recommend getting it shipped to the states and going down to pick it up. I use a company called Ship Happens in Sumas (I live in Abbotsford so that's closest for me). You'll save a ton of money on shipping and brokerage fees by doing so. I'm fairly certain Point Roberts and some of the other border crossings have similar companies you could use. Definitely worth looking into.
