its cool bubba, some people are mushrooms and love to eat it up. I've been to the site, and dont get me wrong its a very high quality product, there is no arguing that, but it seems to me at that price to become a "hey look at me" item for trucks that will never use the setup to its potential, which the same results could have been achieved for literally penny's on the dollar. if thats the way you guys choose to go hey more power to you, just trying to take some of what I know a little about and be helpful to the members of this site.

For me though the 2 inch coil spring spacers is all I needed for my truck since it is a dually and it will never be off-roaded very hard.

Oh yeah and Queeg lets go the page buddy, first you put down Texas and now this I don't care if you know us Texans know

While were on the subject, what is the diferences between the Carli, kore and Lorenz. I still wanna lift my truck front and back 2-3 inches but can't find anyhting but leveling kits that will stay within those sizes. I want the back end to stay that little bit higher then the front but more then 3 inches interferes with trailers to much.

Wow.. I go away from my thread for a while, and wala.. this is what I find. My theory is this. Different strokes for different folks. I have decided that FOR NOW, I am gonna run steel leveling spacers, some bilsteins, and the sway bar spacers from lorenz. It'll work fine for what I want to do, for now. That being said, this is just temporary. I go a lot of places where the Carli kit will work better for me, and when I have the $$ I will be switching out to that. Great thread guys. Glad to see it discussed.

Scotty,

Spend the dough on the end links instead, they work much better than the spacers.
Factory end links are

As far as a $75 spacer vs a $2500 performance system.......let's just say there's a $2425 difference in ride quality, on or off road. It's alot more than a leveling kit, we're talkin' coils, add a packs, end links, Bilstien 7100 rezzy shocks, and IIRC, a track bar too.

You can also call it the difference between doing 20MPH through the rough stuff with a spacer, and tossing everything all over the truck, or doing 40-45MPH with the Carli kit and not spilling your coffee

coke or pepsi. ford chevy dodge... i like carli cause he`s right down the street from my girlfriend. and i like meeting people face to face i do buisness with. and i got to ride in sage carli`s truck. and i liked it.. alot.

so its all what you prefer. it seems carli has also spent many moons dealing with a custom shock for the dodges. wich should be availible in the next month or so.

btw 49 hours now no sleep i feel

Conrad, I hear you bro. The ONLY reason I am doing a leveling kit right now is because I wanna keep the tires out of the fenders, and my budget doesn't have carli's stuff in it yet. I WILL eventually have carli's system on my truck though.. you can bet that
