Are the rears necessary on a new truck? I definitely want to level the front but would think I can leave the rear alone. Is that correct?

What are most set at: 2.1 or 2.8? I am planning on 2.1 I think just to avoid potential wobble or overdoing it.

There's plenty of people here running 2.1 and 2.8. 2.1 can still produce wobble, but it does give you less chance of it than with 2.8. Really depends on how much factory rake you have and how much you want to maintain. For instance, my truck has 3" of rake so I will set mine at 2.8 to level.

There isn't a wobble. At best it is a mild vibration that only happens at take off in 4WD. It doesn't happen in 2WD. Most don't have it. Leveling kits do not cause "death wobble". So put your levels on and have fun.

Exactly what he said ^^ Dodge death wobble is on solid axle front ends only. Not 1500's.

Thanks for the info! I guess when mine shows up I will park it and measure the factory rake.
