Default 08 1500 2wd 2" Leveling Spacers?

Does anyone know if they make a 2" front coil spacer for an 08 2wd Ram 1500? I can only seem to find a 1.5" and I need 2" to be level. Is there a 2" spacer from another application that will work?

Any info is appreciated!

I installed the Daystar 1.5" spacers and it only added 3/4" to the front end. Very disappointed. I ended up buying the Fabtech 6" lift.

Its been awhile since I bought the spacers I put on mine, they were 2.5" though on my 4x4 and I have put my truck through some tough off road stuff and they are still holding stong. I cant remember the brand. But the leveling kit in this kit ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2006-...#ht_612wt_1033 ) are very similar to what I bought. They might even be the same brand. Either way, I would highly recommend these over a poly/rubber spacer, the steel kit is much more durable and wont sag. These are easy to install too. You just take the strut out and bolt the spacer to the top of the strut and then put it back in. You don't even have to take the strut apart. I'm Highly recommending these if you want a good quality leveling kit.
