    Default 96 1500 2wd extended cab leveling kit?

    Ok so Ive searched all over for a front leveling kit for my 2wd extended cab. It seems like all either are 4x4 or single cab only. Is there anything different between them? The only one that didn't say it didn't fit was Daystar but there product looks just like all the others.

    Daystar is the only one I've ever found but I'm actually going to use 2" Rough Country coil springs instead of spacers.

    Ok Ive done a little more research and emailed people who sell them on ebay. And this is what they told me

    "The reason why our kits will not work on extended cabs is because of their coil. Extended cabs coil measure thicker in diameter so when the kit is installed it won’t allow them to seat properly."

    So I searched Rockauto to see the specs on the 96 1500 5.0L v8. And according to the ACDelco springs they sell there isn't any difference in springs between for extended cab and standard cab. Only different springs they have is with AC or without AC.

    So I guess I'll have to email them and see what they used to develop the spacer.
