These pictures are stolen from another forum. He is using a 2" leveling kit on the front only. They are 35x12.5x20 on the factory Dodge wheels but I don't know what wheels you have.

Ah cool. Ironically, my rear driver side window acted up a few months ago so I'll have to check both sides.

Thanks again.

You can use lift shackles if a slight 2" or 3" lift is all you want. If ride quality is what you are looking for, then yes, new springs are needed.

With the 4.7 motor, a 2 inch level should be fine. I would be a little wary of the shock extensions. If you can afford a 2" longer front shock, you would probably be safer but it's up to you. I think...

If your truck has struts then you would remove them as 1 piece and you would need a spring compressor to take off the spring. Struts look like the 1st picture but I'm pretty sure you have basic...

I can only answer this part because someone helped me with this same question. I have a 2007 2wd and the splines in the hub are simply exposed. Nothing goes into them.

Piece of cake. The rears are 2 nuts each and the only reason to jack up the front end is because you have to slide the shock out of the bottom of each control arm. Other than that, easiest job around.

Be careful with the 2.5" lift or higher. The 2007's shocks are designed to stop the upper control arm from crashing into the shock tower. If you go too high with the spacer, you will need longer...

I don't think you can run 35's with that type of lift. They will rub on the fender liners and you will lose a lot of your steering radius. 33" tires should work fine but not 35's.

I assume this is a 2wd truck?

If so, Dodge limits the travel of the control arms with the shock absorber. On my 2007, if I do a 2" coil spacer lift on the front end, I need to buy 2" longer shocks...

I'd recommend a CST spindle lift of 4" and a rear block of 1" I'd also recommend you go with their new line of cast spindles.
