Default 2013 1500 level or lift?

Hey all.

Bought my truck brand new on August 30th (big horn quad cab) and already have a Rough country 2.5 level kit ready to be put in....after some searching of the forums, it seems that many have issues with a vibration or wobble in the front end due to the leveling kit being installed...can anyone share any sort of experience with this particular kit? Lifts the front 2.5 inches and the rear 1.75 inches. I am considering not even using the leveling kit and instead saving up for a 4 inch lift from rough country or from another company, if anyone has suggestions?

This is my first brand new truck and I am willing to take the time and spend the extra coin to do things right the first time. I definitely don't want to get the kit in, only to have issues.

Does it seem like there are less or no issues when going with a full actual lift kit as opposed to a cheap leveling kit? Or is there a good leveling kit out there that wont mess with front end geometry? Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

you should be fine. Many many guys are running these level kits and rarely report the wobble. Though in most cases its only in 4wd on flat surfaces.

I get a minor vib in 4wd with my bilstein leveling shocks...but it's only noticeable on flat ground...who drives on flat ground with 4wd?



Get the kit...you'll be fine

You can't go wrong with the leveling kit. So, it is only a matter of what you prefer.
