Looks great. Can you explain to me, who knows nothing about it, why you needed to replace the rear 1" with a 2" block? I thought leveling requires bringing the front up, or do the Bilsteins bring the front up higher than the rear?

The mechanic that put my front levelling shocks on was amazed that the levelling shocks brought my truck up a full 2 ".I still wanted a bit of a rake to my truck and if you look at the pic you can see the back is a bit higher, one inch.I have seen the front higher on other trucks and i don't like that look.If you haul stuff in your box and just have the front levelled the nose of the truck is usually higher depending on the weight of the load and i didn't want that.

That is a pretty big jump for shocks. Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense and I agree. Put a little weight in the back and you're looking at the clouds.
