What are your measurements from ground to fender for the front and rear?

You shouldn't have lost anything.
Maybe you got a full tank of gas

Did you replace the front shocks? If so, what did you go with?

Nope. Stock. I saw on one of these threads that you can replace them with 2500 oe struts for a Lil longer travel. Can anyone confirm this?

I read a thread of someome imstalling the Bilstein 24-186063 which is used in the 2500 with his level kit. I think this is route I going to go with the daystar kco9100bk spacers. did you remove the stock isolator/bushing or keep it in?

Btw...where about in georgia you live...Im over in woodstock.

Good stuff! I'll have to look into that and compare it to replacing it with an aftermarket shock. With just over 90k miles on my '09, I'm figuring I'll do the shocks since I have it apart anyway. Thought about waiting to do it all when I did a lift kit but I keep pumping money into my other toys. I really like the way the leveled 2wd looks and the wife will be happy.
