? About material leveling kit is made of
 
How's it going everybody. Havnt posted in a while due to me working on a street car I'm building.

I have a QC 1500 4x4. Finally buying a top gun customz leveling kit. Wanted to know if its worth the extra 25-35 bucks to get the rear .75 inch spacer in steel. They offer a front and rear kit for 120 but comes with a poly style nylon bushing. The othe option is buy them separate an not in the kit an get both steel. Sorry for the slight rant.

Would there be any pros or cons running the rear with the poly nylon or using the steel in its place?

The factory rear spring isolator is made of rubber. I wouldn't worry about it.

I just installed the Daystar 2.5" in the front and 1.5" in the rear yesterday. Super easy to do.

Was the rear spacer on the day star rubber or were they metal? I feel like a poly spacer would squeek or make noise. I'll have to look at the rear to see how it seats.

Also is there any differences in 2009-10 vs the 2011? I thought I read the suspension or rear end are different.

I believe its the same. The spacer on the daystar kit is poly. I haven't heard any noise or squeaking at all.

Alright, thanks man really appreciate it.

Not a problem :)

I think the top gun custom 2.8 front and 2 rear springs are the way to go. I have never been a big fan of preloading the strings with spacers. If you have the cash I would have to say it is the best way to go.

I considered the bilstein shocks but the extra money I'd prefer to spend it towards my rims and tires.

Also do you guys think 305-55R20 with a 20x10 -10ish offset or a 315-55R20 with a -18ish offset would look and fit the best? If I get the 305's im getting the Nitto trail grapplers if I get the 315's not sure about the brand.
