you'll be okay with a 2/2.5" spacer kit.

are you 4x4 or 2x4

Yeah if you can save up and wait for the Bilsteins I'd do that. However I went the cheaper route first to see if I'll have any issues running a leveling kit on my ram. I couldn't justify replacing a perfect working shock with another since my shocks will eventually wear out anyway...and when they do I will remove my leveling kit and replace it with the Bilsteins.

With that Being said I just put my winter rims and tires on and I checked my whole front end, all of my ball joints, tie rod ends and CV's are still as happy as can be after my first 6 moths running the rough country 2.5Front and 1.75"Rear spacer kit.
