I am looking at putting a front end leveling kit on my 09 Laramie but i heard the fuel economy will suffer greatly. I don't mind the fuel consumption now but wouldn't want to see it get much worse. With everyone out there that has put front end leveling kits on, have you noticed a big difference in the fuel economy?

Lifting the truck should only yield a .5-1mpg loss, if that. Hardly noticeable. The point where you get noticeable mpg loss is when putting on larger tires. The larger the tire, the more power it takes to get it rolling. Changing the height of the vehicle will only make it slightly less aerodynamic which, like i said, will only yield slightly lower mpg.

Great thanks for the info. Well i guess i'll order a front end leveling kit. I just put brand new tires on so i won't be changing tires anytime soon. She is a camper hauler so it wont do alot of off road. I have a jeep for the woods. Next question is what leveling kit do i want? the daystar seems pretty popular. They are all basically the same for the 2.5" kits aren't they?
