    I want to put a leveling kit on my truck but the prices are all over the place. How much should I be spending? They seem to be from about $75 to $300. I'm a guy that believes you get what you pay for and I want a quality part. Gimme some input people.
    Thanks, Casey

    Holy cow, how did i get to this one before ProSeasons? seriously though, consider going with the supercoils replacement springs up front rather than a leveling spacer. i had the spacers on mine for 3 years and then went with the new springs after the stockers bagged out. What a difference! i went with the +2-1/2" springs, but mine is a 2nd gen 3/4 ton cummins truck.

    if you are going to go with coil spacers, go steel, not poly. Poly spacersd have a history of splitting out after a year or 2 on plow trucks.

    Thanks for your input! Do you know how much I should be spending on the spacers? And what the new coils would be to compare?

    Yeah it was nice. I looked at my phone when we hung up and we had talked for over an hour! Like a couple of girls!

    I have Rancho Spacers on one truck and Top Gunz on another. Happy with both. I would suggest getting new shocks as well.

    I have "Husky" or "Super" spring in my truck too, as well as a 1.5" spacer (it sits about 1.5" too tall, so that's coming out), but the front end is much more stout than it was. Carries my 1000# PLUS plow very well, and actually sits about 2" from touching the Timbrens....

    These things are beef.

    I have Daystar spacers and Rancho shocks on mine, had them for 6 years now. With the plow on the truck, it barely squatted. I have 0 complaints with either one. I bought them both from 4wheelcustoms.com, got a great deal also.

    Hey Guys, if I go with either spacers or bigger springs how do I know what size shocks to replace with since the truck sits higher now?

    When I ordered my spacers, I just told them to send me shocks that would work with a 2" lift. Pretty sure wherever you order from will be able to set you up.
