It's your truck so only you will know. Bust out the measuring tape and figure it out.

Already did brother!! I am not sure if this is how you all measure but i measured from the ground up

Front:35 7/8"
Rear:38 5/8"

In theory if i do a 3in level front and one in the back i should be fine. Just wondering if anybody had this setup

Thanks in advance!!

I have installed a 2.5" leveling kit from Lift Option. I did it myself, and all was going easy until I go to put it all back together. Unfortunately the instructions included would only work If I had a second guy with me, or 4 hands and Schwarzenegger strength. So you tube to the rescue, I followed Rough Country's install video and only took an extra hour to put it back together, for an overall time of aprox 3 hours.

Pricing (CDN$)
Spacers: $100 shipped
Alignment : $160 with tax

Now to my dismay, the front end sits 1" higher than the back. I did measure before I bought, so Im not sure what went wrong....
Now I have ordered a 3" rear block kit, so when that is in I should have a 3/4" rake, assuming these calculations are correct lol.

So all in all I will have spent $420 for a level and lift kit with alignment and aprox 3.5 hours work. Those living in the states could do it alot cheaper since I paid $140 in shipping alone. Will update pic once my blocks are in.

I would drive it around for a week or two and then measure it again. It should settle down a little.

I have a 2" kit installed on my truck from autospring. Front measured 2" lower in the front before install but afterwards, I ended up with the front 1" higher, so somehow I got 3 in of lift as well. Unfortunately, now my ball joint and CV axle angles are a little too extreme to my liking so I'm about to take the spacers off and return the truck back to stock.

Luckily Autospring will be taking the spacers back for a full refund but just thought it was weird that I got a full 3 in of lift vs the 2in I saw supposed to get.

Can somebody on here post a pic or the cv and balljoint angles on a stock truck so that I may compare the angles I have now?
