      This is a great thread. Thank you.

      One question though:

      I don't see anything written about leveling with the Rough Country leveling coilovers.

      I think I understand the benefit of not using spacers, but a full coilover replacement seems like an even better solution than the Billsteines.

      Can anyone tell me about how the Rough Country 2" or 3" leveling coilovers compare?

      The Rough Country struts weren't out when I originally wrote this article. To be honest, I shy away from any Rough Country suspension components. Without getting into the explicit details, you get what you pay for and Rough Country is definitely on the low end of quality and a number of people have had issues with their stuff with no customer service or warranty from Rough Country to back it up. Not worth the potential headache in my opinion.

      Aside from that, the Rough Country struts are not adjustable like the Bilsteins are. So essentially whatever you get is what you're stuck with. With Bilsteins you could level the truck now and if you decided to lift the truck in the future the Bilsteins could still be used by lowering the preload back down to where required. The Bilstein shock is also going to be better quality than anything Rough Country provides.
      The advantage to the Rough Country coilover is that it comes fully loaded and ready to install on the truck without needing to disassemble your OEM struts to use the spring and hardware on the Bilstein strut. If that's something you're after I'd suggest looking at either the Bilstein 6112 kit or Fox 2.0 coilovers as both are a better option than Rough Country struts in my opinion.
