Both Maxtrac and CST use a taller spring for the 2013 with the Hemi. Neither one use a spacer in their kit for the front for that year. You can just purchase the coil springs separate if you need to.

I've read almost every page of this thread and haven't found what the overall consensus is for the best leveling kit for a 2wd??? I've also searched some auto parts websites and can't find many options.

I have a 2014 Ram 1500 and want to raise the front by 2 inches. What is the best leveling kit for this? Maintaing ride quality is my number 1 priority.

Thanks for the info, I browsed the websites and couldn't find springs to level a 2wd

Just to let everyone know I'm waiting on word from Bilstein on whether the 5100's will work with the 2014 2wd as their website says they do. I'll check back once I hear hope it's today.

If they do somehow work this could be a huge development for us 2wd guys.

Of course they work. Says so right there on their website. And if it's on the internet, it has to be true... right?

Finally able to talk to a product manager at Bilstein to find out why their website says the 5100 adjustables will work on the 2014 2wd. He said it was a mistake on their part and apologized. I knew it was too good to be true but needed to hear some explanation from them.

What a lifted 2wd is used for in Miami

Do your tires rub at all ? I am putting a 2" leveling kit on my 2012 ram 1500 2wd and I want to get the biggest tire possible without any rubbing.

I hope you guys still check this thread. Anyways I read a post on here a while back where this guy put some 35x12.50r20's on his 2wd truck and they fit except for when he was at full tilt. My question is if I put on 33x12.50r20's on some rims with a -12 or -18 offset do you guys think they will still rub? I wanted to do a level kit or slight lift but only because I thought it was necessary.
