Without a lift, nothing. What kit did you use? No kit will be perfectly level as the back should sit a little higher.

Well people have said that the Daystar kit does not raise a full 2.5" (depending on the truck), but there is only a 3.25" difference in my truck stock so that doesn't sound right.

What was the height of the spacer?

Can we see a picture?

I leveled mine with bilstein 5100 shocks. I set it on the 2 highest level and I am almost perfectly level. The highest setting is 2.8 inches of lift and that put it 4/16 of an inch higher than the back stock height if that's enough awesome. If not I see a lift kit in your future.

I paid 214 for the front shocks. I didn't do it myself. My dealership charges me half normal labor rate to do all my work there so I just had them do it. There are directions in the box for which setting to use. If you are buying the 5100s for the back too I would use the highest setting. You will be really impressed with the ride quality. It's the best mod I've done so far!

I got them from 4 wheel parts and picked them up at my local store. On the 2nd highest setting the front is 5/16 of an inch lower than the back and on the highest setting it's 3/16 higher. Sounds like you need the highest setting and the rears to achieve what you are wanting. If that doesn't get it lift kit is your only option. The ride quality is excellent and no death wobble. Like I said it's the best thing I've done so far
