Angry 2" leveling kit isn't quite level???

hey guys, new here. Got rid of my Ram and bought an 07 FX4. Put 285/60r20 duratracs on and looks great. i then measured to make sure what leveling kit i needed (b/c i've heard 2.5") and ended up getting the 2". Well, the front may big about 1/2" higher. unlevel concrete could play a role, but when it is that close, I'd rather have the rear end up... what do you think?

Then, I'm thinking i will buy the 3" block for the back to replace the 2" OEM to give me an inch in the back, which i believe would make it look better.

Thoughts? thanks guys!

3" rear blocks and 2.5" front for a perfect level on my truck. I had the 2.5" rear installed but the dealership emailed me a photo of the front being higher and asked if I wanted to keep it like that or throw in a used 3" block for a perfect level. The owner is a family friend so it was free for them to swap it out for me. The pic is my old level kit, I'm currently running coil overs as my shocks were toast in the front and couldn't pass up on the price from f150lifts.com

Oh, yeah, that looks nice. When I look at my truck, I kind of have a question mark in my head about it and i dont like that, so I might as well lift it an inch. a little higher will look better and possibly level if not a tad higher, which is no biggie, but not visa versa.
thanks for the pic, it looks nice! i'll be there in hopefully 4 days, haha.

I also measured before buying a leveling kit and purchased the 2" front instead of the 2 1/2" and it still ended up being a little to high.

so thanks for the input!

did you get it aligned after installing the level? That could be the issue.

I have the same problem with my 2" level. So I bought a 2.5 level a few months back but haven't got around to installing it. I will also add a 1" lift shackle as I seen a member running that with the 2.5 level and it sat perfect! Here's a pic of mine now with the 2"
