I got mine for $180 for the pair back in March. I know www.shockwarehouse.com has them for $200/pair. I only bumped the front of my 2010 Crew Cab up by 1.4", but it made a big improvement in stance... and the truck rides a hell of a lot better. The Bilsteins control wheel hop/bounce on rough roads MUCH better than the stock junk.

I think it is new to the 2011 Mopar Performance Parts catalog.
I read in another Forum that there is a TPS for this kit stating "Known issue of wobble in 4wd and no repairs or fixes are to be made." Apparently Mopar knows there is an issue with it but they are still selling it. Some dealers have refused to put them in because of this issue. Looks like a great kit but many people are having alot of issues with it. Better off without it IMO.

Default Level Kit

I have the 2" Spacer Kit that Mopar was selling installed on my truck. It was $199 for the kit and $199 to install with alignment. I have wobble issues in 4x4 when accelerating, most noticeable on dry pavement. I took it to several dealers and spoke with guys at Mopar. They were no help and said it was just the way it is. Problem started after kit, only solution they said was to take it off. I'm pissed, but like how truck looks.

That one for Top Gunz Customz looks almost identical to the Mopar one. Any known issues with that, such as death wobble? Trying to figure out the difference between the two, besides the aftermarket being $200.00 plus cheaper.

Why would you be using 4x4 on dry pavement anyway?
