    Leveling Kits. Who’s got em

    Just purchased this 2019 F-150 4X4 and I’m looking into leveling kit for the front. Debating on a 2inch or 2 1/2inch Kit. Who’s got what ?

    Just do it the easy way and get Bilstien 5100 all the way around and set the front on the highest setting. The handling will be better and the rear end won't jump around on washboard roads.

    Right now I'm running a 2.5" spacer but have the new 5100's in the garage waiting to go on. Right now mine sits perfectly (or as close to) level but I want to get some of the rake back so the front is coming down about 3/4".

    You’re beating a dead horse man. Definitely one of the most discussed topics on here.

    So the 2.5 is the best bet for getting it as level as possible. Wow I didt realize the ride comfort would be effected. What’s the 5100s ? Struts/Shocks ?

    The ride won't change one single bit if using stock shocks and springs.

    I have a MotoFab 2.5 level on my truck, and it's too much. It looks like the truck has a little squat. I have an add a leaf kit to install on the rear to bring it up some and fix that.

    I'm seriously considering leveling my truck.... The other way. I've always been about lifts and big tires, but I can't break this feeling that my truck would like T!TS with the rear lowered to level. I've never lowered before. Anyone have any advice?

    This simply isn’t true. At 2.5” you lose almost all suspension down travel if using stock control arms. The ride will definitely be harsher.

    ^^^this

    I've done aftermarket coilovers for levels on trucks and the pucks, the coilovers or Mets better for a ride quality. In other words I would never use pucks again.
    Now if your truck is pretty much a street truck it won't make a whole lot of difference
