Default 2010 Which leveling kit with 3" Rake

I have a 2010 sport crew cab and am trying to find a leveling kit to help with the 3" of rake from front to back. I might just do a 2.5" in the front but after seeing the kit top gun customz offers for 2.5" front and .75" back i dont know what to do. I'm afraid the back is still going to sit to high. Please help.

Anyone have any thoughts on what they think about the top gun 2.5 front / .75 rear?

It is virtually the same as the Rough Country lift. Just leave out the .75 rear and it will be level. I used it because I wanted a slight rake for heavier loads.

Hellbent steel 2.5 inch level. I like it a lot. $80 bucks. Levelling kits are all essentially the same... unless you go with bilstein levelling shocks, different story

biltsteins would be the way i did it if i were to do it again, well sometime like that anyway, i am a huge fan of the procomp adjustables that are out for our trucks(only downside is you have 2 settings, factory or 2.75) however they are very solid, best warranty and come in between $90-$120 a piece ($180-$240 a pair) depending on where you buy them at. not sure the part number for 2010 model trucks but for 2012 it ZX-2014 or ZX-20014 got some suds in me and cant remember, sry.

I would have done the bilsteins but since I'm putting in a lift later, I'm going to put that in at the same time! no point in paying to get shocks in there twice, haha i know more companies then just bilsteins have levelling shocks, but bilsteins are proven and loved, why would you change from that!

personally becuase i am a procomp fan boy but i have ran bilsteins and they are great and get the job done and proven like you say. different parts for different people , however if you put the bilsteins in now they can be reused when you do your lift and you could get an extra 2" also you wont have to pull the level kit as there would be no use for it when doing the lift . this is the route i would go if you plan on doing a lift later just my opionon though
