Default Removing leveling kit??

I need to know what I need to remove a coil spring spacer kit on a 05 2500 ram 4x4. I hate to remove it but I just bought the truck and its to high to get into and I have bad knees so I need to take it off but I am not sure how to. Any help with this would be great.

first off welcome to the forum, i see you are new.

secondly, before you go through the trouble..is 2" really going to make it that much easier to get in and out of?

If you must, you should just need average shop tools. If I'm not mistaken you don't have to compress the spring because it's just a spacer that goes on top. Even if you do, you can rent those from your local auto shop, then you get your money back when you return it.

you do have a point it might not make that much of a diference. I was told that you need the stock mount for the shock or something like that?

do you have side steps? Or get some of those single steps that come down pretty far and just bolt on. I really wouldn't go through the hassle of removing that for a lousy 2".

Plus on an older truck you are bound to run into an issue or two with seized up parts. it very well could end up being a headache.

I'm not terribly familiar with the 02-05 ram front ends with the torsion bars and all. I haven't ever looked under one so I don't know what removing the kit consists of.

I know it'll look visually different without the level. But I highly doubt your knee will be thanking you. I'd look into some side steps
