    Very true Big b, i guess it all depends on what you want to do, i plan on up grading my shocks in the future as well as the cst4.5 or similar 4inch lift

    I agree with you on the 4" lift jb as i would love to go higher.Isn't it funny how once you lift your truck your never satisfied with the height?

    I think the 295's would be OK, but would love to rock some 315's. After a long talk with the wife I will be ordering the shocks next week. Wife 1 Me 0 Can't wait to see how they are going to ride. I think it is going to be a pretty sweet set up with the ReadyLift level and the Bil's for ride comfort. Wonder if I can get an extra 1/2" out of the 5100's?? Might be too bad on the angles.

    Like said above, once you leave stock height.....it is all down hill from there.

    Thanks for the pics guys, I can't use any of the leveling kits ya'll got, my truck is 2wd, and doesn't have torsion keys, that's the whole preface of looking at coil spring spacers. Any idea what shocks I should run for a 2 inch leveling kit?

    I have a 2009 Silverado, 1/2 ton crew cab short bed. If I install a Ready Lift Leveling Kit, do I need the 2.25" or the 1.5" leveling kit?

    I have a Pro Comp leveling kit and have had absolutely no problems. Here are some before and afters:




    Will be installing some Bilsteins in the front as soon as they show up on my door step. Already have them in the rear.

    I have a quick question im still new to this and i want to do things right. Currently i have 2" blocks in the rear and aftermarket torsion keys that added a few inches in the front. My problem is the torsion keys like to bang around when i turn my wheel and i just dont like the ride. I would like to get rid of them and level it out a new way then add a body lift. I would like some suggestions and all this is to add some more height and fit some 35s on, im currently running 285s.

    It all depends on what look your going for. I have a 2" RC level kit and 2" rear blocks (3/4" lift) and it looks something close to Ajarmans truck. A 2.25 level kit is going to be slightly higher in the front. A 2" kit (without rear lift) will be completely level front and back, BUT if you add any weight to it the rear will sag and you will be higher in the front. Which was my problem so I added the 3/4" in the rear. I wish I would have bought the 1.5" to achieve the same look and still be able to fit 285's
