Default 4" bds lift on 2014 ram 1500

I have 2.5" rake so what can I expect with 4" bds lift up front with no bilsteins(can't get them) and 3" springs in rear? Will it take 1" rake out or will it remain about the same? What can I expect and is there anything out there almost as good as bilsteins?

It will take 1" of rake out. So you'll be left with 1.5" of rake.

If you want the truck to be level, buy a 6" lift with rear coils. That will remove 2.5" of rake and you'll be sitting dead level. Essentially exactly where you would be with a 4" and Bilsteins.

I think I am good with 1.5 rake.
