Talking Looking for a leveling kit!

I own a 2012 ram 1500 quad cab. looking to get a levelling kit to bring up my front end for abit for clearance then throw on bigger tires. So, can anyone out there point me in the direction to do this? and the Pro/cons about doing it. and the difficultly to install them.

If anyone else from Canada could help me out that'd be great, i'd like to buy in Canada.

I don't know of many places in Canada that you'll get a good price... I get all of my parts from the states. I have 2.5" Hell Bent Steel levelling spacers on mine. Then to get a bit of rake I added 0.75" rear coil spacers.

I would recommend getting Bistein 5100's to level though. It's a fully adjustable strut which is really nice. Plus you can always use it for extra lift if you decide to add a lift kit down the road.

Check out Discount Auto Performance. jhinkle1989 will get you the best pricing. Send him a PM about what you're looking for.

I live 1hr from Hali, and i'm going with the 2.0" HBS leveling kit from their store on ebay. Nothing but positive things about this kit, and i'll maintain a little rake which I think looks good. 2.5" is fine with rear spacer, but without it looks nose hight.

Also what's with the poll??

i have a daystar 2.75 they call it 3 inch spacer looks really good the only bad thing i would say is changing the shocks much sooner because of it.

I found the 2.0" levelling kit on the HBS website, is that all I need to buy? and this is going to sound dumb, but i'm new to this lifting trucks and stuff so what is "rake"?

rake is the term for how the truck is lower in the front than in the rear.
