HERE is what I am talking about. Was wondering if anyone had used them and had any good/bad feedback/reviews on them. Bilstein 5100's are on backorder for quite a while so I was looking for some alternatives.

I just installed the 2" HBS on my 2010 and am very pleased. It rides and feels the same as the factory ride. You can really tell a difference in ride height. I went with 2" as I didn't want to go to high and both the 2 and 2.5 kit allow for 35" tires (i believe) I ordered mine from HBS themselves not ebay not sure what the difference is.

I have a 2.5 kit I bought from HBS on e-bay, I still haven't installed it yet because I am thinking I should have gone with a 2" kit. The quality looks very good, once I decide if I want 2.0 or 2.5" I will install it.

Nice, thank you guys. I bought the 2.5" one that I linked, but now you guys are saying get the 2" lol. I have seen people say both 2" and 2.5" have leveled their truck so I am wondering if I should just buy a 2" set also and see which one is more level to me.

edit: Was looking on HBS' website at their pictures of both the 2" and 2.5" and the 2.5" looks more level with me, so going with that one. If I end up not liking it I will just buy the 2" and sell the 2.5" set. :p

I installed the HBS 2.5" kit and have had no problems with it thus far, it still has about an inch of rake with the kit installed. After install I would definately recommend getting an alignment done for your tires sake! :) I have a few pictures posted about halfway through the thread below, of before and after the HBS install.

Enjoy!

Nice! Thank you much sir! Quick question, those look like the stock wheels, what size are they? I was guessing 17" but just wanted to verify. Planning to go with a 33" tire after the kit is on.
