Default 1.5 inch level

Here is mine. 1.5" level with 275/65/18 Terra Grapplers. Nice and simple

How hard is it to instal a 1.5-2 level kit on a truck at home?

Stupid easy. I switched out my leveling kit for full raptor suspension with using two jack stands and a jack

Sounds good. It would be my first time lifting or leveling a truck so I just wanted to be sure before I go off and tackle something I'm not ready for.

you just need the right tools and a couple of jacks and/or jack stands (as noted above) ... and clear instructions/directions ... and you and a friend can do it.

the hardest part for me was getting the top cap of the strut rotated 180 degrees. you will need some spring compressors for that.

Can't just spin the entire assembly (strut, spring, cap and all) 180 degrees anymore? I haven't done mine yet, but have done several '04-09s.

I think you can up to the 13's ... the 14's are different due to the design of the lower strut mount.

I tried to install a auto spring 2.5in leveling kit and got it in there but the control arm is hitting the strut has anyone else had this happen. I do have them on the right sides.
