Re: Best Leveling Kit???
When you say level, I assume you're not touching the rear, just lifting the front about 1-1.5" to take the rake out.
The Bilsteins have 4 positions where you can put the spring perch. They'll give you stock height on the lowest setting, then .75", 1.75" & 2.5" lift. Sort of like a poor man's adjustable coil-over. It seems like their lift numbers are a little low, at least for the 2nd and 3rd notches. If you're stock, the 2nd notch will probably level you out. If you put a heavy bumper on the front, you might want to use the 3rd.
If you want to lift the rear 1.5", you'd be doing what most people would call a 3" lift. Lifting the front about 3" and the rear 1.5" results in a roughly level stance, but I think most people would call it a lift.
Oh, BTW, if you put these on yourself, you can skip the gym that day. It's a workout even with air tools. I'm still a little sore.
