The NNBS trucks use a spacer on the struts to level out the front suspension. It will have minimal if any affect on ride quality and wear of front end suspension parts. Leveling kits can vary in cost from $100 to $250.

I like the ReadyLift spacer kit or the Bilstein adjustable leveling shock/strut. If your truck has the original front shocks than the Bilstein would be the way to go because you get a leveling kit and shock all in one. Then you can buy the rear Bilstein shock later.

Pros....Bigger tires, no rake and much less expensive than a lift kit. I went with ReadyLift 2.25" and I love it.

Pros:
-Bigger tires (33")
-Leveled look to your truck (instead of factory forward lean or rake)
-Cheaper than most alternatives
-Relatively easy to install
-Cheap to have installed (if you chose to have someone else do the work)
-Most kits come with a lifetime warranty (CCM, ReadyLift, etc.)
-Very minimal effect on ride quality

Cons:
-......... Hmm.........
-It will cause you to desperately desire new (and pricey) tires.

Indeed shortly after I had my leveling kit on. I had found a set of 4 Firestone Destination MT's on craigslist with 8,000 miles on them and $400 later on my way home. For $900 this past winter I got 5 - 31" Dunlop Mud Rovers, 4 - 33" Firestone MT's and 5 - 17" Pro Comp wheels. All thanks to ideal finds on craigslist.

Craigslist is the way to go IMO for good deals on truck parts. I found my truck on craigslist and I sold my stock wheels on craigslist when I got my Cragars.
