    Hey guys, needing some help on deciding what brand leveling kit to go with for my 07 nbs. I've been reading on here about some of the different brands. Just wanting some suggestions on whats best and ride comfort. Thanks in advance!

    I really liked my ReadyLift. Kind of pricey.

    Is it the Classic body style,'03-'07 or the NNBS '07-'11? Reason I ask is because the front suspensions are different.

    New body so I know I need strut spacers instead of keys

    OK, just checking. I had keys in my '05 so I don't have experience with the NNBS, from what I've read since it just uses a spacer the ride is not affected, hopefully some of the NNBS guys will chime in. I think hardware and materials have a bearing on what is the "best" kit.

    I like ReadyLift or the Adjustable front Bilstein shock/strut.

    Since its a '07 it most likely needs new shocks/strut. If you buy the Bilstein you get a new shock/strut and a leveling kit.

    Most factory shocks are only good for about 40,000 miles at the most. They go bad slowly so you don't notice till you install new shocks/struts and then you realize how bad they where.

    Hey man you can still use the stock shocks for the leveling kit because it will NOT change the ride comfort until you lift it. The Readylift is Non-Adjustable Strut Extension Leveling Kit - 2.25" Front Lift and you can run 33 11.50's is max tire size without rubbing. The kit in a easy install and no cutting drilling or swapping parts out at all. If you feel you need to buy shock's you could buy some Exspensive ones or cheap one's what ever your budget is but bilsteins are one of the best shocks for the price..
