    This morning I finally leveled my truck with a 2.5" supreme suspension leveling kit. I'm so happy with the results! Here are a couple of pictures:

    Nice work. Did this kit give you the full 2.5" as advertised? Why is it that other 2.5 kits come with the strut extensions and the lower blocks?
    Did you have the modify the strut assembly in anyway?
    Did you have to get an alignment immediately?
    Thanks for the info and pics.

    The kit said it would give me about 2.5" of lift in the front, however after I took measurements the front was still lower about .25 - .5 " And I have seen various kits that come in a 2 piece kit as you mentioned. Such as Top Gun Customz. The reasoning behind that I do not know, but I have read about it somewhere. I just forget >.< And, I did not have to modify the strut at all. No cutting or drilling. Lastly, I did have an alignment done immediately actually.

    Idk if you're asking Fernier or myself. But ill answer on my part and apologize ahead of time if you weren't asking me. I got a kit of eBay. 2.5" kit with shipping came out to $46 and some change. Put it in with a friend. Didn't take but just over an your. The ball joints were the biggest pain, wanting to turn in the control arm and not tighten but we go it.
