    Default Leveling kit front and H2 springs rear?

    Hello All
    I have been doing my research regarding lifting my truck approx 2" and I am thinkng of doing a front leveling kit (key replacement) and the rear H2 coil springs, seems that both will produce approx 2" of lift so I was wondering if anyone has done this set up and if so what were the results. Pics would be great as well.
    thanks

    I was reading a post today where a member did install the h2's in the rear and it raised his truck 1.5 to 2" so I guess it should work ok with the keys.

    i'm planning on lifting my truck 2" as well. i found that tough country makes a 2" lift kit. for my truck, it comes with 2" leveling keys and 2" AAL's. it costs $170. getting H2 springs might cost a bit, and then the additional leveling keys. you may want to look at this tough country kit.

    So you would replace your leaf springs with coil springs?

    I think I would just do an add-a-leaf in the rear to add 2"

    he has coil springs in the rear, not leaf springs, so that kit wont work.

    I looked at the tough country kit but I am opting forthe new H2 rear coils this way I am getting more bang for the buck,
    1. new springs to replace my 100K mile stockers.
    2. A much more Heavy duty spring that will help when I tow my camaro to the track
    3' Will gain 2" lift over stock height when not towing.
