      Ok so are my thoughts about travel limits correct? They also offer this kit https://www.roughcountry.com/dodge-front-leveling-lift-kit-363.html which is cheaper than one 5100 and if it ends up needing the rear I can order after the fact. I don't really mind the extra cost of the 5100's but am concerned with the possibility of ball joint issues and don't really like the idea of having to swap out the uca's even if it is with the cheaper mevotech arms. measurements on my truck are 36.5 in front and 39.75 in rear. I should also mention Ive only had it 2 weeks and am looking for a level solution until it is out of warranty then it will get a full 6in lift

      It's the spacers that will cause your ball joint issues. The bilsteins eliminate those issues. So, in the end the bilsteins will cost you far less while giving you the off road ride you are looking for.

      Travel limits are correct, yes.

      If you're planning to install a 6" lift that's even more reason to get the Bilsteins now as you can (and will likely want to) use them in conjunction with the lift to fine tune the ride height. The RC spacers cannot be re-used with the kit.

      At the end of the day, yes the Rough Country spacers are cheaper but you're still using a cheap, OEM strut where the Bilstein is a better quality strut that will provide a better ride. You can do what you want but for the amount of labor it takes to install the RC spacers it really doesn't make sense to use them over Bilsteins.
