Default Leveling kit?

Just bought '10 crew cab ram. Sits a little low for me. Looking at a rough country leveling kit 2.5 in the front and .75 on the back. Anyone know if there's a better kit?

all of the above are good suggestions. bilsteins are popular, but nothing wrong with going the rough country route.

Some people like bilsteins because 1)you're upgrading your shocks to better ones 2) if you ever decide to lift, you can still use your bilsteins, whereas you would have to remove the spacer kit

Bilsteins are the way to go. Honestly I wish I was on this forum before I leveled my truck because that's what I would have gone with then. Unfortunately I didn't know about it so I went with the Hell Bent Steel 2.5" spacers. Now don't get me wrong, I haven't had any issues with them and they are a great product for the price. I just think that the Bilsteins are a much better option to provide you with some lift and better ride quality. Plus like gonefishin776 said they can be used with a lift down the road.

If you want to lift the rear check out Top Gun Customz. They make a number of different coil spacer sizes for very reasonable prices.

For some great prices on the Bilsteins contact Andrew or Jeremiah at Discount Auto Performance. They'll hook you up.
