Default 8" rize ind. Lift kit

I am installing an 8" RIZE ind. kit. Will this kit retain the factory rake or will it level the rake on the truck?

It will have a lean to it. For some reason rize likes that. You will remove your 2" block and add there 6" so only 4" of total rear lift and 8" of lift in the front. Your rear will be 2" lower

Rize is absolutely better. They are a true 8" drop Down bracket.

Thanks for the info - Good thing I haven't bought it yet. I searched BDS and they offer rear springs as well. I did not know about the BDS kit. Cheaper as well..... Thanks....

They certainly look like the best kit out there but what do I know....
Maybe I'll go with the RIZE 12" and call it a day....
