    Hey guys, first of all, new member from Southern California. I've had my '05 since it was new, but my son just told me about this forum. So, hello.

    I was looking to get advice and some info on what it would take to level my truck out.
    Is it about an inch or so of lift to level it? thank you!

    Cool, I don't ever take my truck on trails, but I think leveling it will make it look better IMO, so its all aesthetics.
    Thanks for the reply!

    Have you measured the height difference between the front and the rear? I see so much variation in height.

    Bilstein 5100 or Pro Runner (adjustable struts that uses factory coil springs) are good options.

    All are good options. The struts are nice but for the price and being you don't off-road, the spacers will be just fine and dandy.
