    Default stacking leveling kits?

    alright well i know your really not supposed to stack leveling kits, but was wondering if i could add the rough country 2'' level to my truck even though i already that the daystar leveling kit (which i believe is 2''). the daystar goes on top of the strut and the rough country goes on the bottom mount. the only thing im wondering is if there is a diff drop kit out there cause then ill have 4'' of front lift.

    just kinda wanting to know if this is an option. thanks

    If you do that set up, you will max out your A-arms and definitely lose your ride in the front end. I would not recommend doing so.

    If you are looking to go just a bit bigger your best bet would be a 4in suspension lift. There is alot on the market that are pretty decent. Rough Country also makes a 3.5in lift kit but im not so sure about that one....

    You can add a body lift with a leveling kit. Zone Offroad makes a very nice body lift.

    The result of stacking level kits.....

    It is about the same size as my truck with a lift and looks really good, but the angles.....

    I agree. Get a 3" body lift. IF, and I mean IF you could manage to get your front end back together with 4" of leveling kit I would be amazed. The UCAS would be welded to the droop stops, your CV's would bind, and on and on. The ride would be horrible and it's dangerous anyway. I personally wouldn't do a 3" leveling kit either, and much of the above still applies.
