I requested my dealer adjust the front 1/2" lower to maintain a slight rake. They didn't, but I'm happy with how it came out. Mine sits level. Love the ride and handling compared to stock.

Later I read this which may be the reason my dealer did not adjust the height.

Not recommended . . .

Was thinking of doing this also when I install my fronts.

Finally got the fronts mounted. Decided to have the dealer install them. I told the dealer not to align it if it did not sit level or up to 1/2 inch nose down. I think either the tech that installed the coil-overs or his tape measure need to be recalibrated as the front is 1/4 inch higher that the back. Have to decide if I want to make a stink about or not. Rides a drives great and I think looks good too. Before pic is with rear shocks mounted.

It looks good to me. You are probably the only one that will see that 1/4 inch unless your friends carry a tape measure with them. Plus the weight of the topper (180 lbs or so?)probably brings the back down that much. 😷

That's really interesting. I planned on reducing my leveling height to 1.5" or 1.75" (don't know how fine it can be adjusted) to keep a little rake. Good to know before I invest in it. 2" is probably going to be ok too. It looks good on your truck.

If you look at the rocker panel it looks like it still has some rake which I like. Either way, looks great.

How do you like the feel in the front?

It rides and drives great. Body motions are much more controlled, I'm very happy with how it drives.

Hello,

The kit was not designed for diesel applications and we cannot recommend it.

If your still interested in pursuing it let me know,
- Benny
