Question 2wd leveling kit questions!!

i have a 2006 1500 hemi 2wd, with 22" rims and 305/40/22 tires. i want to do a level kit to even out my trucks stance, and then get some all terrain tires for my 22" rims...

my first question has to do with the level kit. im looking at the 1.5" daystar level kit for 06-08 2wd models, and i just want to know if there are any problems what so ever that i could have with putting a level kit on my truck. i would have a shop install it with an alignment, but would there be any issues. vibrations or noises or ride quality issues. any input would be highly appreciated..

lastly, i was looking at the Cooper Zeon ltz 305/50/22 tires after the level kit. any body have these or ever had them? pics and input on these tires would be great, thanks!!!!!!!!!

My truck is a 4x4 . But I did install the Daystar 2" in the front of my truck . Did not change my shocks , but I'm sure I'm close to being maxed out . Truck rides fine afterwards .

I had the Cooper Zeon Ltzs on my last truck (01 gmc sierra z71.... i know i know) anyways they were great.. i did alot of riding on the sand dunes and the street and they have always performed better than i expected. A great tire in my opinion and plan on getting them again for my ram when the good years wear out.

I would go with a 3" Spindle Lift to keep your stock geometry and shocks.

I'm looking to level an 09 Ram 4WD Quad Cab when I get back from Iraq, and I've seen the Daystar 1.5"-2.5" Level Kits all over the place, but who makes the 3" Spindle one? (I'm new to suspension mods, but I know my way around a tool box)

Welcome to the forum bud, we're glad to have you here. From what I have seen, 2" is what you need to sit perfectly level. I have the 2" level on mine, and it's perfectly level. A 1.5" wouldn't look bad, but if you want it to sit completely even, I don't think 1.5" is enough.
