Leveling Kit

I have a 1989 2500 Scottsdale 2X4 that rides a little low in the front....to fix this I am probably going to get a leveling kit and was wondering where the best place to get it is and the cheapest place to get it without loosing a good quality product....I am also wondering exactly how to attach this leveling kit to my truck and what tools I will need...thanx

Re: Leveling Kit

If its a 2wd, its probably just spacers for the front coil springs.

Re: Leveling Kit

If you get the 1.5", you should still be able to align the truck, if you get the 2.5" you would need longer upper control arms to get the camber correct. The 1.5" should bring the front close to the rear, but you could measure if you want.

Re: Leveling Kit

Who knows? Maybe if the rear sat higher on a 1 ton it would need to be lifted more in front to level it. Or you could get the 2.5" spacer, longer upper control arms, and a 1" block in the back.
