2wd lift?

I hate the way the front of my dually sits and how the headlights point at the ground....
Haven't really ever seen much for 2wd's,
Is there anything that will pick up the front a few inches?

Re: 2wd lift?

I did a 2.25" leveling kit up front, and 1.5" blocks in the rear. My truck sits exactly like a 4x4, with the 05 factory 20" wheels, nobody knows its a 2x4, except when they see me running through the mud with enough momentum to plow down a house. The leveling kit is a daystar, and the blocks are a generic steel block, I also put on new U-bolts on the rear axle. Parts came to less than $200 plus a little labor from a lift shop (modifications unlimited in RPB, FL) to do the leveling kit cause I didn't want to fawk with the front springs. but You do have to get your truck aligned afterward, and to get it done right it cost me $200 as well.

All said and done, I like it, my front tires are a little toe in still, so I will have to get it aligned again when I get new tires, but that wont be for a while because my Goodyear wrangler AT/S tire have about half tread left on the front tires, but the back tires have a little bit less,

I just redid the back, I like the way it sits and it sits a few inches higher than the stock 2wd's I want the front to match though. Its way to low for me, I like the idea of having it look like a 4x4!

Re: 2wd lift?

If you lift it with springs or spacers, you have to drop the I-beams as well.....

Re: 2wd lift?
