    Sweet. I think I'll go ahead and order it. One last question: how do I tell if I have aluminum control arms or not. The kit comes two ways - for aluminum control arms and for non-aluminum control arms.

    Lies! You tell lies. Everyone knows you can't tell the difference between a stock truck and a leveled truck.

    Pretty easy!...crawl under your truck and look at them...if they are nice and shiny they are aluminum...if they are black they are non-aluminum

    Wooaahh!! I was just about to click submit on my order and I realized the leveling kit I linked to is for NNBS trucks!

    Looks like the only leveling kit for NBS trucks is the circular coil spacers from Daystar.

    I'd be careful with those Daystar spacers McClintoc. They're not usually made of solid material. If you go off-road at all (like bumpy field roads) you'll have to watch it. If I were you I'd get a leveling kit that had new shock/strut brackets and torsion keys. Pretty sure procomp and a few others make a kit like that.

    A) it seems the synthetic (non-metallic) spacers from Daystar are all that is available for my old truck.
    B) I don't think it will be too bad as I don't have 4WD nor do I do any off-roading. In this case, the leveling is almost purely for looks. They should hold up to daily driving.

    Thanks for the link but 2.5" is too high and I already ordered the synthetic Daystars yesterday.
