Default Leveling Kit for 2011 Dodge Ram

Thinking about putting a 2" leveling kit on the front of my truck (Ram 1500 2wd). Wanted to see if anybody has had any issues with leveling a 2wd. I have read that the 4wd sometimes develop a "shudder' after putting a leveling kit on them. Would love to see some before & after pictures of a 2wd if anybody has them. I am doing this for cosmetic purposes only!

Thanks!

The shudder you speak of is related to the angle of the CV shafts after the leveling is performed. With a 2wd, you don't have cv shafts, so you shouldn't have to worry. Definitely get an alignment ASAP though.
