Here is a question about leveling that I can't find an answer too...

The eight speed transmission controller detects when the vehicle is on inclines and changes the shifting pattern, does leveling the truck interfere with the senors ability to determine incline percentages?

Anyone with an eight speed leveled their truck and noticed a difference in shift patterns?

I thought the Bilstien 5100's were only for 4WD???

I'm looking for a leveling kit too but have been unsuccessful.

only for 4wd my friend. I think any kits compatible with 2009-2012 work for 2013. so that should broaden your search.

As gonefishin776 said, the Bilsteins adjustables only work to level a 4wd truck. But any leveling kit from 09+ will work for your 2013. That might help you find something a little easier. I believe CST makes 3" leveling springs for 2wd trucks. That's the only thing I've heard of to level a 2wd.

Just saw a few other posts about guys getting lift spindles off eBay. That might be something worth looking into.

How much are the CST springs?

A quick search shows $210 plus recommendations to change shocks and the installed height depends on engine type and cab type (quad, crew)
http://performancelifts.com/CST-2002...-CSC-D3-2.html

"CST does not recommend this spring be used on any V6 Engine equipped Ram 1500 2wd trucks because the lift height may exceed 3" inches and cause a rougher than desired ride quality."
