I have a 2013 SCrew 6.5' box F150. I want to put a leveling kit on it (front end only). I am torn between a 1, 1.5, 1.75 and a 2. I want the fenderwell gaps to look the same. I will be replacing the stock Goodyears (275-65 18) with Yokohama AT-S tires before winter. The replacements will be E-rated and the factory size. At a later date it will get air bagged suspension. I had the exact combo listed above on my last 2008 F150. Loved it, and the fenderwell gaps looked the same front to back with the 2" leveling kit I had on it. Do any readers out there have experience with the 1, or 1.5" leveling kits? If so please share!

Liking the Freak-O-Beast and EcoBeast stuff LOL!
Stage 3 Motorsports just released info, install, and pics on the Dyna Star Front Level kits (Thread and link) today. Recommend hoping over and checking it out and maybe hit them up with the questions.

I have a 2" on mine and the front sits SLIGHTLY lower than the rear. My only complaint is when it's under a load, the front sits a tad higher which I don't care for. I may put a small 1 or 2" block in the rear to raise it just a fuzz. The ride didn't change any; however, the front end was WAY out of alignment.

Dropped a 2.5 inch leveling kit onto my 2011 FX4 and it sits perfectly level, measured from top center of fender to ground. The perfect amount for that particular truck. Measure yours of course to be absolutely sure of what will work best on yours.

2.5 will make a completely level sit. I have 2 inch, which leaves it a bit low in the front.

I just put the Rancho Quicklifts on the front and the rs9000xls on the back of my 2011 FX4 and it is sitting level. I measured from center of wheel to the top of bottom center of the fender well.

Based off of the suggestion of the Rancho Quick Lift by 11fx4, I just ordered a complete front and rear set of Quick Lift struts and Rancho 9000 rear shocks for my new 2013 FX4.

While I look forward to taking most of the front to rear rake out of the truck, I look forward to having 9 position adjustable shocks. Plus this system includes a Life Time Warranty for the original owner of purchase.

So as of today anyway, my truck still sets the same, but my wallet is much lighter!!!

Congrats jon, IMO you will be happy with the set up. Let me know if you have any questions about the install, it's pretty straight forward.

I have a question also about leveling the front. I have a hell bent steal leveling kit, that has studs installed in the block. This requires you to rotate the strut. Other kits just extend the studs on the strut itself, this way you don't have to rotate the strut. Does anyone know which is best and why? I would like to know before I install.

These are the Hell Bent Steal ones I have. The look to be good quality. Aluminum with stainless steal studs.

I believe on my RC leveling kit once you bolted the leveling kit onto the struts and tightened it down it would turn the spot where the struts bolt up. So that is normal how yours is. If that's what you're asking?

Has anybody installed the Auto Spring 2" lift/level with add-a-leaf that can post some pictures, and let me know how much the ride changed from factory?
