I have a 2" HBS leveling kit on an 05 cummins and I cant say enough good things about HBS
My spacer is all steel computer welded and had all of the hardware I needed, the directions were straight forward and there customer service was great.
It took me almost 4 hours to install both by myself in a gravel driveway.
For anyone thinking about doing it i recomend using a bottle jack between the frame and axle to get the clearence you need for the spring and spacer.

I'm planning on getting my dad an HBS leveling kit for his 11 Ram 1500

Those of you with the HBS kit, anything you need to do besides install the kit and get the truck aligned? I really want to avoid any shock work and don't want a bone-jarring ride when I'm finished, either.

I have heard nothing but good things about this leveling kit....I am interested to see if they join us. I would really like to see that for sure.

I had a local mech. do it for me. I was going to do it but couldn't do it because of some surgery. I took him the kit I received from HBS. He charged 1 hr. labor plus the alignment . I asked him if he had needed to supply any extra parts and he said, nope.

I don't have any, "strange" noises coming from the front end. I really can't comment on the ride as I run 10 ply tires at 42 PSI. I had the tires on before the kit and can't really say the ride was any different after the install of the leveling kit.

I'm looking to purchase this kit, within the next 2 weeks. When installing this kit, would this be the best time to upgrade front shocks? Do you have to get an alignment once your done?

Does anybody have any pics, of their trucks with this kit on it?
