That is why I went with the 2" Kit from Hell-Bent Steel...... Just enough height and helps keep the angles in a halfway decent spot....... 2.5" on a new truck will raise the front end a little to much and if you have a slight vibration while in 4HI I would not even worry with a level kit. You will just make the vibration worse. I just installed a 2" level kit on mine and I checked to insure that I had no vibration before I bought my kit....

Not really...just wanted to make sure that you have checked to see if there were any vibrations before. Paying a shop to do it is a wise choice......But if you have to have it removed you will have to pay for that also....I took that into consideration when installing mine and I figured that if I installed it and something was wrong I would then have the understanding of how she went in and would be able to get her out easy....... Good Luck and I hope to see pictures soon

You won't have any problems. Installing it is not hard takes a couple of hours the first time you do it. If you have vibrations on a new truck take it back there is something wrong with it. Vibrations in a driveshaft are generally from the driveshaft not being balanced. Get the dealership to replace it.
