Default Switching Lift kits

How's it going everyone? I am hoping to get some help here; I have a 2010 1500 with a RCX 6in lift. To me it seems that the front sits slightly lower than the rear and was looking to fix this. I am wondering if I can switch my lift kit to maybe a BDS or a pro comp. The other solution I was thinking about is to put Bilstein adjustable shocks up front and just level it out. I only do some basic mudding when I can nothing to aggressive. I heard leveling the truck after lifting is bad. Thoughts????

Hi, Carl, and thanks for joining the RamforumZ. I encourage you to stop by the Newbie Checkin section and introduce yourself so other members and give you a proper howdoyuoudo.

Since my RAM is not lifted, I cannot help you out there. All I can say is that's a damn nice looking RAM, Dood!

I added the bilsteins adj to my RCX 6 inch lift. I set them @ 1.4", sits about 1/2 - 3/4 rake now and haven't had any problems with them. I wouldn't set them on the highest setting and it would be a lot cheaper than switching lifts.

You can swap out the lift kit but that won't solve your problem. Bilsteins can be used with almost all 6" kits to level out the truck. As mentioned above setting them at 1.4" with a 6" RCX kit will level it out. Using them with a proper lift kit is no different than running them on a stock height truck. You won't have any issues at all. I ran that exact setup on my old 1500 (6" RCX kit with Bilsteins at 1.4").

Thank you for the advice I think I will just get the Bilstein shocks. I was worried that getting a new lift wouldn't change the issue so I am glad I got some advice. Thank you again.
