Default 2013 2wd 1500 level kit options

I see a few spacers out there but are there any other options like a heavy duty spring, possibly a little taller? If not any recommendations on spacers? Poly vs steel (don't know if I've seen steel for the 13 2wd)? Thanks in advance!

The leveling options for us 2wd guys are certainly limited. I'm waiting on word from Bilstein on if the 5100's will indeed work for us as the website says it does. I have my doubts after talking and reading on this site.

What are some of the best spacer options you've found so far?

To clarify the Bilstein site says they will work on the 2014 but not the 2013. Odd since they should have the same suspension setup.

Bilstein adjustable struts will not work on any 4th gen Ram 2wd truck. They don't have struts. Bilsteins website is wrong.

best way to level without changing the factory ride too much would be with spindles...maxtrac sells a 4.5inch spindle kit but if you don't want that high ebay sells some 3inch ones for @$260...my buddy put on the 3inch and it leveled his truck almost perfect...the maxtrac will give you the cali lean look...

I believe the bilsteins are struts, the 2wds have coils and shocks separate, thats why they wont work. correct me if im wrong tho
