Default Leveling Kit

Hi I just got my 2006 dodge ram and want to get a leveling kit but don't know what is a good brand.

I was looking at this one: http://www.autoanything.com/suspensi...0A3009539.aspx

Is this a good kit or is there a better one?

Well for that kind of money they better be high quality. I believe you can get them for under $60 at jcwhitney. The ones on jcwhitney are ruff country which is a supposed to be a good brand.

I don't know too much about the Rize kits, but I do know that Daystar makes a bulletproof one. Just don't go over 2.5" or you run into instability issues aka the 'death wobble'

I have the Daystar 2" spacers on mine . Watch the price . I have seen them recently for under $50.00 . I paid over $140 for mine 7 years ago .
