Depends on how big a tire you are gonna go with. If you want 33's I'd suggest the 2.5" kit as a minimum.

Yes, you should get an alignment after the kit is installed.

Well if your truely looking to "level" your truck take a tape measure and measure from the center of your wheel to the lip of the wheel well in the front and back. The difference (back-front) will tell you how high you need to go to be level.
I have a 2" spacer on a 2500 and it actually sits about 3/4" nose high

I just put the Bilstein 5100 struts on the front and got 2 inches of lift which still left me with about 1/2 inch from level. Then i put coilovers in the rear and got an inch of lift so now im about 1 1/2 inches from level. After that i put on new tires that came out to 33.5 inches tall and have no rubbing at all!

Thanks guys I belive it needs 2.5 Im just gona leave the stock tire size p275/60r/20 I think its a good looking size. I just cant stand the nosedive, it looks like its carrying a plow . I could just be used to my old 1st gen 1tons I made them sit level with a couple new leafs these newer trucks are a diferent world to me. Now for the next round of questions since there is no full power screw, timing advance,afc star wheel,big honkin air filter,and pod injectors how do we sqeeze a little more power out of this small mill???
