Front is Lower than rear, Also hearing Ratteling noise
 
Ok so I'm lost on what this could be. I have a 2007 Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4x2. I have a heavy duty replacement bumper on the front. I added a leveling kit to the front, but didn't replace the shocks, cause I was told it didn't need it. Its been about a yr now. But the front is now lower than the rear, as if i lowered the front like 3 inches. I'm also hearing a rattling noise. You can feel and hear it under your feet while you are driving, and can only feel and hear it when you hit any kind of bumps. I don't have my lift any more nor my tools. I have looked at it but haven't taken anything apart just yet. Does anyone have any ideas or what to check for fist???

I would try replacing the shocks. Leveling kits put alot of stress on the stock length shock because it max's out the travel ontop of the extra weight of your bumper. Everytime you hit a good bump you bottom out the shock basically.
I ran stock length shocks on a 2500 with a leveling kit for a year and just replaced them with +2" shocks about a month ago. The stock shocks were fine, the tubes clacked and rattled when you hit bumps, but the truck rides much better now.
I'm not sure if the shocks are your whole problem but it cant hurt. I think you can actually put a stock 2500 shock on yours and that will give you the +2" you need
