2" Daystar leveling kit

Well, after having it since January, I have finally got it where I want it. 2" leveling kit really made a difference in ride (plus now i am able to fit 33" tires under it). Still trying to find Better shocks than the scorpion shocks that came with the kit. The rears in the kit did not fit.

What size wheels came on your truck?

I have the 18" wheels and they are 33 inches tall factory........I assume your truck came with the 17" wheels? What size tire is on that?

I would think a 33" tire would fit all day long without any lift

245/70/17 came on the truck. Mine is only a 2WD. I needed the level kit to fit the 33's. I cant express how much of a difference it is in ride quality!

Does it ride smoother? It looks nice in the pics. I may get one for my front end. Did you need longer shocks?

It Took the re verb bounce out of the ride. I rides like a truck should ride now. It does recommend longer shocks. The daystar lift came with scorpion shocks. The verdict is still out on them.... The high way ride is great, but there is a little spungyness in the steering.
