Default Newbie help on Lift Kit for 07 ram

Hey guys, im newb when it comes to lift kits and i really need some advice.
I have an 07 quad cab and im going to be putting on a 4" RCX lift kit. Would i still need to add the Bilstein 5100s or would the lift kit alone level out the front end?

Even if the kit claims to level it, most the time it ends up having some rake (as reported by many people running RCX on this forum)

so you could certainly get the bilsteins and run them at an intermediate height setting to get your truck looking pretty darn level.

of course if you don't have $$ in your budget for that...then it certainly won't look bad with just the lift.

Also consider the 6" lift is only $50 more....

Contact bullysperformance here on the forum for great pricing on any of the above mentioned parts

What would be the pros and cons of going with a 6" instead of a 4" ?

It seems most of the time people who go 4" just wish later down the road they spent the extra $50 and went 6.

Even people who go 6" end up wanting to go BIGGER

In the long run, a little bit more bumper clearance, clearance for slightly larger tires if you needed too. And the looks, it's not A LOT bigger than 4"...but it's just the perfect look IMO. And still looks good with 35"s

Nothing wrong with going 4", was just making sure you realized the 6" kit is only $50 more...so why not????

In my state 2 inches is the limit so I'm going 4 inches to play it kind of safe lol. Would going to 6 require any more work or put any more added strain on the trucks ride?
