I have a Hell Bent Steel and have no issues. I think I would just buy the one that promises 2" or the one that the install shop recomends. My HBS raised the front exactly 2".

Just ordered a Moto-Fab 2.5" level. Billet aluminum, so solid piece of metal off a CNC. Has anybody installed these?

I had the Rough Country kit on my 2006 and was thinking of doing that again on my 2014 now that they're available. It wasn't too hard to put in but I'm gonna ask the dealer if they'll do this one and how much it would be.

I went with the bilstein adjustable shocks, wanted a level and new shocks for the front. my oem shocks have 50K on them and our roads where i live are terrible. hoping the highest setting 2.25" looks and rides good.

I have the bilsteins as well on my FX4 and love them so far. I only wanted level and tried to keep from making it too ruff. so i only went with the second setting down from the highest and got exactly 2" and it sets level ( actually its 3/8 higher in front). and still rides great.

Oh really? that's cool, i was told by bilstein that setting was only 1.75" lift so I figured I'd go to the highest. what was your fenders at before the level if you remember? I'm 2.15-ish lower in the front on my FX4.

I was exactly 2" on mine it was 37" in front and 39" in rear.. now it 39-3/8" in front and 39" still in rear.. i was worried about going all the way to the top as i had heard on on other forum that it was a lot ruffier and most was adding blocks to the rear to level it back out.. now if the maximum heieght is the goal then go to the top and add some blocks and get right at 3" is what i have heard.

I'm sitting at just under 37.5" F and just over 39.5" R. How's the ride? Factory? Better? Worst?

I installed a Daystar 2" level. Took about 2 hours and I am happy with the results.
