Default 2 1/2" Front Level Lift Spacers

I am looking to install my 2 1/2" Front Level Lift Spacers on my truck at sometime in the not too distant future. I also plan on buying and installing rancho shocks for the front and rear on the truck.

My question is...If I put this level lift kit on the truck do I need to get the rancho shocks for the 2 1/2" front lift?

instead of buying the spacer and all four shocks if it was me and this is what im planning on doing is buy the bilstein 5100's for the fronts which will give you the leveling that you want and get their shocks for the rear and save yourself some moolah

The HBS spacers are like 85 dollars. No longer shocks are required unless you're doing some SERIOUS offroading. Quick alignment and you're good to go.

I had a whole response typed thinking you had a 2500 and yeah haha
The bilstiens are a great option but they are expensive and only allow you to adjust to 2"
With spacers on a 1500 it doesnt extend your shock at all so you will not need longer struts. Using spacers hardly affects your factory ride quality, it just makes it a little rougher through bumpy sections since you dont have quit as much wheel travel
I'm extremly happy with HBS products if the spacer route is the one you choose
