you also say you removed one of four shims? I assume these were in the rear correct? I am looking at raising the front of mine to achieve level.

those are 37's i got. i had to trim the inner rear corner of the factory flares and they rub a little when turning full lock on the control arms but nothing serious. yea i removed 1 block from the rear suspension. but i'm also pretty sure my leafs have a little bit of sag to them i'm a little hard on the old girl lol. i think it's a 1.5 or 2 inch spacer for the front coils to level. that is if your rear springs aren't well used and beginning to sag a little. i don't think youd need anything other than just the spacers. i'm sure one of the other pw guys can confirm if i am right or not. got any pics of how your truck sits and how much difference in ride height there is you have to get it level.

The reason you don't see any "levelled" PW's is because it's not as cheap or as easy as just adding a spacer, The front end is already raised 2" at the factory , you'll have to replace the control arms to add a larger spacer , or go to a full suspension upgrade

hate to point it out, but that picture shows why you shouldn't put a spacer on a PW without installing longer control arms, you can see how much it's cocking your spring and shock rearwards , which will cause binding and bumpsteer issues, as the suspension is at the very end of it's extension travel, the center of your hub , should be in a straight line with the top center of the coil
