Default FINALLY got the Leveling Kit done

Well after a two day wrestling match with my Ram I finally got the daystar 2.5F 1.5R leveling kit in. The rears took me about an hour after collecting all the proper tools, but ran out of light. The fronts spindle bolts were rusty enough to need pb blaster.....after a year on the road....interesting. But the fronts in total probably took me about 2 hours, finally finishing up at 4 o clock. Tomorrow the alignment... I drove it to go vote and snap a few shots, Overall Very impressed. I like the new stance and I actually think it drives alittle better, but thats just my mind playing tricks and NO DEATH WOBBLE thank god. Oh and Hello! First post, been ghosting for awhile, finally had something to say.

Well here it is... Before (gray sky) and after (blue Sky)

did the 2.5/1.5 myself and love it. To me it makes these trucks look SO much better. Yours looks great.

keep us updated on the level kit. been hearing alot of horror stories about the plastic spacers in the CV joints going bad. I have been looking for so long on different kits and it seems that every kit has its own problems, take that back most of the 09 rams are having problems with the kits.

did the rear lift shift your rear axle to one side or did it have a trac bar adjustment?

Is your truck a 2wd or 4wd? If it's a 4wd, check for death wobble in 4x4. If not, congrats! Does make the truck look alot bigger!
