I bought a leveling kit for my truck a few months back from fat Bobs garage. Today I finally got around to putting it in. It took longer than expected but it's in there now. I love the look. I can't wait to get some larger tires for it. I think I'm going to go with a 34" tire. Here is a pic.

The truck sits almost perfectly level. The angle of the pic makes it look like the front has a slight rake though. I am sure once everything settles I will have a slight rake which is ok with me.

I haven't noticed any difference in the ride. Still rides like it did without the level.

I just bought the same kit for mine. What kinda problems did you run into? Did it all work out with just the spacers or did you need something else to make it work?

The spacers were all I needed. I did not use longer shocks and have not noticed any negative effects from not doing so. If you plan on doing everything yourself be sure to rent or purchase a spring compressor, it was much needed on my truck.

I used the readylift instructions for their leveling kit. http://www.readylift.com/files/instructions/66-1035_Instructions.pdf

The only things I did different from what readylift tells you to do was: I did not disconnect my ABS lines. Instead I left them connected to the caliper and tied them up and out of the way.

The other thing that is different is we do not have new bump stops so just ignore those steps.

Yea i have a spring compressor, i was just noticing that some kits came with extended shock bolts and wanted to make sure i didnt need any. Last leveling kit i put on we used ratchet straps to compress the spring and it was SKETCHY... Lol
