Local 4WD shop is recommending 2.5" ProComp strut spacers in the front and 2.5" TGC coil spacers in the rear (with Bilstein shocks in rear). They thought that was the most appropriate way to get 2.5" more clearance. I was going to just go with the front level kit but when I use my motorcycle hitch carrier (with 300 lb dirtbike), the rear drops about 2.5" so going to level unloaded = nose in the air when loaded. If there is one thing I miss about my 2000 Tahoe, it was the auto leveling shocks in the rear. I could load that thing down and she would rise right back to level as soon as the ignition turned on. I don't think anyone is making that for the new rear coil suspensions in the Ram (yet). That's what I really want -- level when unloaded, level when loaded...
