Default Need some input on leveling front end

I went and had a local offroad company install a daystar 2.5 leveling kit on my 2007 Dodge Ram 2WD truck. I am not happy by any means with the truck now. I have noticed that the front seems way higher then the back end. I have also noticed that the truck seems higher on the driver side then the pass side. It squeeks when driving and hitting all bumps also.

So to my point of this post... Should i try to fix all this to posb have other problems down the road or install some 3" spindles? How hard of a job would this be to do? I am willing to get some stock lenght shocks to put back on it with those and see if it rides better and levels all out.

Ill take any input at this time. I had a truck i once was so happy about to now having one that sits in the garage all the time.

Thanks

If I was you, i would call that shop and ask them to look at it. If its something they did wrong, then damnit they should fix it. A 2.5" is supposed to be completely level, so maybe its something they did. I know absolutely nothing about leveling kits, but I am wanting one very very soon, like tomorrow lol. Ill be watching this!

I just Level my truck myself Today . With a bunch of floor jacks and towers .

I pur a 3 inch leveling kit from tough country . I didn't get to go for a ride yet "I'm full of dirt lol" but my truck is completely level and everything seems fine.


Its almost impossible to have you truck "crooked" I mean if you put a 3 inch spacers on each side then it have to be straight if it was straight before ....

The only thing that I can think of it that you might of gotten a kit that was open and for some reason you ended up with a 2 inch spacer and a 2.5 inch spacer . Those spacers are actually shorter more like 1.3\4 inch the geometry will give you the rest . So they probably wouldn't notice the difference when installing it "not really their fault . Me sure your truck and if its off take it apart and measure your spacers if they are not identical call your rep and explain the situation .


FYI i went with a 3 inch because I had added an extra leaf spring in the back for the company I just hope 3 inch is not going to put to much stress on the rest . I just use it to go to the camp not serious in off roading .

let me know how you made out .
