Default Lifting question.

Ok so i've been wanting to life my 02 Ram for a long time. I don't like the "tail in air" look. I put a 2" leveling spacer on the front, and that helped the look, but it still isn't fully level. I wanted to do a 6" lift with 35" tires, but that isn't in my budget right now. Could someone help me find maybe a smaller lift kit for a decent price? Maybe 3" lift, with 33" tires? HELP PLEASE!

2002 , are you straight front axle or torsion bar . If straight front axle Daystar has their leveling kits in different sizes . I have the 2" on mine and my truck sits great . If you are torsion bar there are torsion bar keys that can be installed to assist in the extra height your trying to get . Remember that if you have to go with the torsion bar keys that the front end needs to be realigned . The other option also if torsion part front end is aftermarket spindles just like Deuce said . Let us know what you come up with . Talk to ya soon . Tom

I have the 2" Daystar spacers on top of my coils, but i want a small lift and completely level.

I checked out rough country, what do you think about this 6" lift?

The 3" lift did not have new spindle.

Didn't know you were 2wd . If you go with the 6" lift , it will be up in the air . This kit looks like it comes with spindles . Then to make it look right you will need to upgrade in tire size . If you're looking just to level it out I think if you go with the 3" up front you will be fine . Just noticed if you go with the 3" lift you're gonna have to make sure your wheels have the required 4.5 inch backspacing that is required . Really depends now how much you have to spend and what you wanna do . Looks like either way you go , you're gonna spend some money to do it right .
