Default What is the best 2 or 2.5 inch leveling kit for a 2014 4x4?

I was wondering if a 2 inch or 2.5 inch leveling kit would be better for a 2014 4x4 F150. I would also like to know what brand has good coilover leveling kit.

I put a 2" HBS on mine and have been very happy with it. It was $80 shipped. If you're wanting to do coilovers, I'd suggest www.f150lifts.com. Alex, is great to work with and very helpful.

Leveling kit brands around here are like favorite ice cream flavors. everyone has a different one...RC, HBS, AS, etc...

Since Bilsteins arent out for the 2014s, f150lifts.com like jerparker said is what you wanna check out.

Since each truck sits slightly different measure from the front and rear fender lip to the ground and determine the best size for your application. Take into account what mods you intend to do in the near future and figure those in to your decision. Also do you tow...as it may now squat in the rear depending on the weight.

Bilstein 5100 doesn't work on 2014? I thought it was 2015+ that were not out yet...

How many miles are on your truck? In my case it made more sense to put new adjustable shocks on since it was time for that anyways. Handling greatly improved as well.

I came here with a question, first thread I search for and find answers it. My dad tried to put Bilsteins on his 2014 FX4 but they weren't compatible. My guess is that the product said 2009-2014 because of the bodystyle being the same, but in reality they changed something for 2014 right? He said something about the lower connection on the shock being different. I thought it may have been an FX4 thing, but this is good information to know about as I'm about to level mine out. Have to get those awful Goodyears off there....

I used the AutoSpring powdercoated 1.5" leveling kit, I have had zero issues with the product or the installation.

I'm leaning towards the AutoSpring 1.5" as well for the 2014. I've read that they yield a bit more lift than the older models.

I had the Rough Country 2.5 leveling kit installed and loved it with the Mastercraft MXT tires, no rubbing or noises.
