kywildcat103,

I purchased the ez lift yesterday and it will be here Wed.When I get it installed I'll let you know how the install went. The reason I went with the ez lift was because it looks pretty easy to install .

I was just thinking, I realize that sometimes that can be a dangerous thing, but anyway. You said that you have not installed them yet because you are worried about how much the front will go up when you tow. My ? is; have you thought about installing a set of load leveling air bags on your ride ? And possibly using a lowered hitch. Just wondering.

No I dont want the front way up in the air over the back, Wright know the front is 5 1/2" the back is 8" 2" lift would be 7 1/2 when I have my boat hooked up It drops 1/2" I think it would be ok but I want to know

Well it does go w/out saying that if the back drops down, then the front is going to raise up. If it only drops down about 1/2" then the front is going to raise at least 1/2"-2". Maybe a little more or less. I could be a little off on this figure. Again, alot of factors have to be taken into consideration when trying to figure out how much the front will raise when towing or carrying a load. But again, if you are worried about, I would just get some of those load leveling air bag systems that you can install on the rear axle. That way you can adjust the rear as you need it depending on the load that you are towing. Some of the systems that I have seen in the past even have their own air tank systems onboard. Anyway LOL.

Keith, I don't have a leveling kit on my FX4, but I can tell you that when I loaded the bed with firewood, the rear sat just a hair lower than the front. I also had an empty cross bed box in it, taking up space. When I used it with the trailer to move two big, 55' matco toolboxes, loaded at the front of the trailer, it sat level. So in my opinion, yes you will be nose up with the 2.5 kit if you put anything in the bed. I'm going with a 1.5 kit from autospring beings is I use the truck, but mostly just cart myself around with it.

I really like the EZ lift. Installed it about 3 weeks ago and it looks great, truck still rides the same.
