Default Another Leveling kit ?

I am trying to figure out which is better to get either brand wise and/or style as well.

I know that there are different brands, but it seems like that there are different styles as well. I mean there are the solid round doughnuts and the keys. there is also ones with anti-sway-bar, etc

As you can see I am very lost. I really don't have much mods and starting to get into moding it.

I got a 2003 1500 4x4 Laramie quad-cab. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,
Matt

What are the anti-sway bar drop bracket uses for and is it needed? Hellbent sells a 2" and a 2.5" leveling kit. Is there another way to know what one is needed/preferred other then using a measuring tape and guessing?

Thanks again your guys help is greatly appreciated.

you dont need the sway bar drop bracket, and I would go with the 2.5" kit only because my truck was 2.25" low my friends was only 1.75" so the 2.5 will cover you in that range.
