Default Leveling Kits

What does everyone generally buy for leveling kits. Would one off ebay like this be suitable? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Dodge...Q5fAccessories

IMHO the hell bent steel spacers are by far the best spacer leveling kit out there(most inexpensive too!). I've heard alot more complaints about Daystar then I have good things.
I did alot of research on several forums before purchasing a leveling kit and I am extremely pleased with my 2" HBS spacer on my Cummins. Great quality and very easy to install.
Before any one else argues for the Bilstiens, they are really nice but you can't use them on a 2500

I agree with Stangshcky12 I've got the hellbent steel on my truck and did a buddy's truck. Real easy to install and bulletproof stuff. I did a daystar on a ford and I wont use one again.

Don't understand those who have Issues with the DayStar kits, mine went right in and has been flawless, works and looks great, very well made components... Not saying other kits aren't good also, but I have found nothing to complain about with the Ram DayStar kit

I have a 2011 Crew Cab 4x4. Would I need the Hell Bent Steel kit for the "Mega Cab" model? It says 1500/2500/3500 Mega Cab, but there is no more 1500 Mega Cab from what I understand. Is the Crew Cab the former 1500 Mega Cab?

You are right that they no longer build a 1500 mega cab. The still make 2500/3500 mega cabs. The old 1500 mega cabs used 2500 frames/solid axles as opposed to the IFS of the 1500.
Your crew cab 1500 also has IFS so it would be the same spacer as all other 1500.
This one(2" they also have a 2.5"): http://www.hellbentsteel.com/product...ng-kit-47.html

Ran this one myself and although I wish it were higher, I'm more than happy, and no death wobble at all up to 90mph with it. No wobble in 4WD either. Had the factory install it and they said it will be covered under factory warranty. Next thing is to get some 33x12.50's to add an extra inch or so to the ride height.
