Default Vehicle Leveling

I feel confident this topic has probably been visited before, but being new to the forum, I would appreciate any guidence you guys and gals might have.

I just purchased a 2007 Dodge 2500 2WD truck.

From the factory, it appears that most, if not all Dodges Trucks, sit lower in the front that the rear. I utilized the body side molding, placing a level across it, to determine that it needed approximately 1" higher front end to make the vehicle level.

I have researched leveling kits on the Internet, finding many sizes listed for leveling kits. Am I safe to assume that adding a 1.5" spring insert on the front 2 springs, accounting for load, to level the vehicle.

Please advise on your experiences with this.

Thanks ahead of time.

Jim

Their are 3 ways to bring a 2 wheel drive 07 dodge level.

Coil Spacers (these are cheap, some wear down over time easy to install)

Bigger front coils (these are little more expensive, better solution as far as ride quality is concerned just nor to hard to install)

full lift kit (most expensive, very good if you want to lift the truck, medium to difficult to install)

Hope this helps

Thanks
Jeremiah

Thank you!!! I was looking at the Coil Spacers. Looks like the most economical way to accomplish what I am trying to accomplish. Lifting the overall height of the vehicle would probably not be advantageous.

Default 2004 Ram 1500 front end lift

This is my first post/reply to a post so if I am in the wrong area I apologize.

I have a 2004 Ram 1500 Quad Cab 2wd and I would like to put a coil spacer lift kit on it. What size would you suggest and what price would I be looking at? Would I also need to get new shocks or will the current ones work?

Thanks ahead of time for the response!

No experience on a 2wd, but you are looking at closer to 2" to get level. Spacers are fine, most are made of steel (Hell bent steel as an example)..If you are looking to improve the ride I would look into aftermarket springs as they offer various rates.
I believe another option is new spindles for the front...
Some 2wd cant use a spacer more than an inch I believe due to the UCA interfering with the suspension..

Whatever size will work and you like... New shocks are not required, but highly recommended...
