Thanks for passing it on so far the three ive gotten are Daystar, CST, and readylift.

The CST is pretty expensive and its for a 4" lift. Its about $1,200

The ready lift has two options the $400 (Level front only) and $500 (lift front 2.25" and rear 1.5")

The Daystar is about $80

Also I went on daystars website and I only see the 1.5" spacers, I dont see the 2.5".
No rake at all sits 39.5" all the way around. Perfectly level

Part # for the kit that I installed is kc09103bk

CST has an excellent reputation and makes quality products. You can't go wrong with them. Obviously, it comes down to how tall you want to go and how much money you want to spend.

I have a 2013 ram 1500 2wd crew cab and all I can find is the 4" CST. A bit more than I want to spend. I would like to know what size tires I can run on the factory 20's if I just level the front. It has 275/60r20 now. (around 33's)
I was set on lowering it but I have just been reading way to many complications had and or too much suspension travel lost in the rear. I am considering aftermarket air bags in the rear to help with that but I still have to overcome the other problems.

Default cst suspension lift for 2wd ram

I just ordered their 7" suspension lift for my 2wd 2010 ram. Its on back order I'm guessing its a really popular lift. But I'll post some pics of it after I install it

With just a leveling kit on a 4x2, I'd stick with a wider 33 inch tire, or maybe a 34 inch tire if you like the wheelwells to look stuffed. If you combine the leveling kit and a body lift, 35's would be a good size.

hey everybody, i have seen a 2.5in spacer to level the front on a site called new level motorsports. i decided to with the CST 4in spindels and spacers in the rear due to people i have been talking to saying it will cause excessive where to my front end components. I havent gotten it installed yet but will put some pics up once i do. I am purchasing XD monster wheels 20x9 -18(5.7in) backspacing this week and was wondering if i'd be able to fit a 295/65/20(35.4in) tire in there and if not maybe a 295/60/20(34.4in). i was planning on purchasing the wheels and then get the lift installed and see what works but if its gonna rub with 20x9's and 5.7in backspacing i may reconsider the wheels that i get. any help would be great. If anyone has any experience with XD wheels w/ -18 backspacing on a 2012/2013 ram 1500 i would really like to see some pics to know how far they will stick out from the body. i will be running some fender flares so a little bit would be acceptable.

For all you guys asking about and have purchased the CST lift. I have it on my regular cab. I did the 7 inch, which is actually a 6.5 inch. I just had my installed last week. I ran into issues and am trying to figure out as of now if its a CST problem or a shop problem. The 2.5 inch spacer is causing the coil to slide out of the upper bucket and rub on the steering stabilizer.

The only thing I did different was went with a 2 inch spacer instead of a 4 inch in the rear. The front is the same exact as the kit sells.

Heres the link to my post so yall can see for yourselves and maybe we can all find an answer to whats going on.
