Default Still have 1" rake after leveling kit install

I have a 2.5" day star leveling kit installed and still have an inch of squat on the front. Any recommendations on how to fix this. Any springs out there that will help? I read that the 2.5" would make it perfectly level but it didn't. Any help would be appreciated

I think someone else just recently posted they had the same results with this daystar leveling kit in particular. I think i commented on it, i'll try and find it. but yeah..the advertised lift dimensions rarely see real life I've come to find out.

I would suggest an HBS 2.5", the 2.5" daystar is alot closer to a 2" level than it is a 2.5" level and sooner or later the poly urethane spacer will start to sag a little bit making you level even less, go with steal spacer you will be very happy level that should bring you up another 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch, obtaining a perfect level is very hard to do, and sometimes you will end up a little nose hi.
