Alright, it's time to report.

Short Answer: HBS 2.5" does a better job of leveling than the Daystar 2.5".

Details: Here are the height details from both companies.

HBS 2.5" Leveling Kit - Part # 125-200-001, is 1 3/8" tall.

Daystar 2.5" Leveling Kit - Part# KC09113BK, is 1 1/4" tall.

HBS reports that their 2" Leveling Kit is 1 1/4" tall, matching the Daystar 2.5" kit.

My Measurements:

From ground to center rear wheel well-
Daystar - 39.75"
HBS - 40"

From ground to center front wheel well-
Daystar - 37.75"
HBS - 39"

From center rear wheel to center wheel well-
Daystar - 23.75"
HBS - 24"

From center front wheel to center wheel well-
Daystar - 22.25"
HBS - 23.25"

From ground to top of front bumper-
Daystar - 29.75"
HBS - 30.25"

From ground to top of front grill just below hood line-
Daystar - 47.5"
HBS - 48.5"
