    Ok, have a 2005 F150 4×4, stock rims and tires. I’m not adding rims or bigger tires, etc., just want to put a leveling kit on the front……I have see 2″, 2.5″ and 3″……just want to level it out without having to buy new springs and shocks, etc……which height would be the one to go with??? I’ve seen the kit in powered coated steel and molded hard plastic or what ever that would be…

    Thoughts or experience with this, chime in and give opinions…..

    I also wanted to raise the front to level it with the back and what I found out after reading about the procedure was that a 3″ lift will affect the geometry adversely. As it is, the suspension has to be disassembled to install the riser puck on top of the spring and shock assembly. The steering alignment will need to be reset and the headlights re-aimed lower. The riser is fairly cheap to buy (about $50) it’s the installation and alignment that run anywhere from $300 to above $500 unless you can do it yourself. Still need the proper alignment performed. The materials they’re made from will determine their longevity. I’d stay away from the plastic ones unless you really enjoy replacing them.
