Levelling kit question

I just put on my ready lift levelling kit. It seems to me that the front sits up higher than the back. The fender gap is the same front to rear, but it just looks nose up. The truck only has 1400 miles on it, will it settle some? Or should I get some of the 2" spacers I see some people using?

I've read quite a few posts says what you are saying ... that the truck doesn't look level even though the tape says it "should be". So, some people have raised the back an extra 1/2" to give the appearance of level. Some say it's because the hood sits up so high compared to the bed.

Did you use the ReadyLift 4" block in the rear?

I did use the 4" ready lift blocks. I think I'd really prefer something in between stock and where it is sitting right now. Any ideas on a 1.5" front and 1" rear setup?

I've not seen a 1.5" front spacer. But, you could go 1" in front with one of those Icon TEI spacers.

But, what I would do is contact Jason with Newton Lifts and see if he could make you a 1.5" spacer for your front. Also, I'm sure he could make you the size of block you need for the rear.

Newton Lifts:

Does the ReadyLift 4" block actually measure 4"? Or, is it really ~ 3.5" ? Just curious because a 4" block in the rear with a ReadyLift 2.5" front should have put you 1/2" high in the rear ...

I'll have to get under it an measure the block. I do know that they claim it to be 2" of lift.

I put 2.5" pucks in the front of my stock 1 ton, and it "looks" level. But when I put a tape measure on the fender gaps, there is more gap for the rear than the front. Not much, but some.

I tried to get mine on level ground today and it has 1/4" more gap in the front. I'm going to put the 2" kit on this weekend and see how it looks.
