Default Leveling and/or lift kits for 2012 1500 2WD?

Ok so I've spent hours trying to research it, and I can't seem to get a straight answer.

I understand that the 2012 4x4 suspension changed slightly from the 09-11's.
But did they also change the 2012 2WD?

If not, then I would be able to run a kit made for 09-11's, although not advertised. It seems that not many companies make kits for 2WD 4th gens.

Im looking for the same thing. There are a few, but they are coil spacers. I want strut extensions (like the T6 Billet) so my ride will not change. Does anyone know who makes them?

Same here. It seems most are made strictly for 4x4 trucks. I know Ready lift makes one, but its for $400. For that price, I may as well go with a complete suspension lift....but im not because I dont want to change my factory ride.

I had the same problem when I was looking for leveling/lift kits for my 2010 2wd. It seems it was either coil spacers or spindles. I went with the 4 inch spindles from CST performance. Spindles aren't cheap but I wanted more than 2.5 inches on the front. And it still rides the same to me.

Also, the spindles got rid of the annoying has pedal vibration that has been talked and discussed about around here.

I ended up ordering a 2" leveling kit from Fat Bobs Garage.
Im gonna rock those until i can afford new wheels/tires and the 4" spindle kit.

CST also makes spacers to go with their spindles for 2 more inches of lift.

Or you can combine a body lift with the spindles.

Yea, hence why i got the 2" spacers to start.
Then later on ill add the spindles (Which is what the kit has; 2 inch spacers / 4 inch spindles).

Thats part of the plan eventually. Im gonna hold off on going TOO big because i want to stick with 35s.

Once they make a programmer for 2012's ill go bigger, probably the 6 inch lift with the body lift putting it at 7.25" lift. Then ill go with 37s.
