    I don't know much about suspension in general. But I wanted to level the truck so I initially bought a 2.5-inch spacer and it's doing a great job except for a clunk driving slow over a speed bump. I'm going in tomorrow to get the front end retorqued

    But as I am about to get tires I want to get adjustable shocks. Most of the shocks say for 4 wheel drive but they have Coilover struts for the front. I will think the two-wheel drive is a lot easier to put parts on as there's no Drive mechanics in the front end.

    So I am not sure what size tire I will be able to use. I'd like to shoot for a 275 65 if possible. There's not a lot of room between the tire and the spindle as it is. Does anyone know if there is a brand of struts made for 2 and 1/2 to 3 inch lift. Eibach has them but they say it's for a 4WD drive it doesn't make sense to me that the fronts can only fit on 4WD

    I went with ICON as they were one of the very few that worked with 2wd. Been very pleased with the results. Running a 275 width tire on +18 wheels. You MAY be able to get away with 275's on stock wheels.20190916_204123.jpg

    Got Pics of the Icon kit installed? Did you do the rears as well?

    Purchased from Stage 3 Motorsports. Price is $1619 but if you call and ask for Lou he will get you a much better price. As for ride quality it is much stiffer and matches the rear now. I hated the floating front end and the stiff rear so these equaled things out. much better in the corners and way more stable. I would say however if you want to keep the stock ride this is not the way to go.

    These are adjustable, correct?
    I would like to a little front slope.

    Yes, they are adjustable. I remeasured tonight and they have settled a little so it ends up being very close to the 2.5" they claim. I would call Icon and see what the adjustability of these are. As you can see from the pics there looks to be a lot of threads for the spring seat ring.
