Default 1.5" or 2" AS Leveling Kit

So i measured my truck and i have 36.5 in the front and 38.5 in the rear, pavement to wheel well.

I think from what I read on here the 1.5 gives you an actual 1.75inches. I'm thinking I should go with the 1.5 to avoid getting nose high. If this is the case with the 1.5, the 2" would be 2.25 resulting in to much.

I'm sure others have had this same debate, What's the consensus?

My AS 1.5" kit gave me exactly 2" of measured lift....
It looked dead level, but I like the raked look so I installed a 2" rear block instead of the stock 1.25" one.

I believe this is before the added rear block....with the AS kit!?

Do you happen to know your measurements before you put the 1.5 on? Were you at a 2 inch rake or more/less?

I want my end result to look just like your picture. IMO that is great looking!

1.5 AS level here. Approx 40 1/4" front and 40 1/2" rear. Basically level.


I think 2" level would have gave me a little nose high...
