+1 to ELKs statements. I, too, run the steel ones, w/stock shocks.36s ain't gonna fit, though.

I had to think about this a bit but I installed a leveling kit on a 04 Dodge awhile back and used the stock shocks as well but just used the leveling spacers for the springs... Owner loved it... :thumb1:

what do you get in a levelling kit?How's the installation? So a 2" levelling would do the job for 35" tires

I got mine from ebay for like 65.00. You just drop the frontend one side at a time. Take the spring out and bolt the spacer in. Then put it all back. One side at a time.Takes 2 to 3hrs.

disconnecting the shocks will allow the front axle to droop enough to almost have enough room. you'll be able to get the springs out, but putting it back together required I take the UCAs loose to get enough droop to fit it back with the spacers.. 2-3 hrs total.

UCAs = Upper Control Arms

We use a rachet strap on each side to compress the spring.

you can also rent coil spring compressors from AutoZone.. At least, you used to be able to.. :edit: Yep, still can. $50 rental, refunded upon return.. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/OEM-Strut-spring-compressor/_/N-25f9?counter=1&itemIdentifier=555557_0_0_

when you install the 2 " levelling kit are you better to go with longer shocks,do you need to go with special rims so your tires don't rub against the frame?:cookoo:
