    What's the best and most economical way to level out your truck?

    I've seen lots of spacer kits that sit on top of the strut. Around $115CAD on amazon. BDS.ca has a kit for $235CAD. How is the ride quality ?and does this method mess with the cv/differential geometry ?

    That answer is going to vary. Different strokes for different folks. What's your budget?

    Right now under $500 would be nice. I'm not planning on doing bigger tires I just want to get the level look. I've also been looking a way to take the rake out of the rear end, but there's not many options to go that route

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    Avoid the spacer and jump to a Bilstein 5100 or the copy ProComp ProRunner or spend a little more for the OME complete lift kit.
    I have the Toytec Ultimate Bilstein lift kit that uses the 5100s in a fully adjustable coilover. Never had any problems. Rides great.

    I second @csuviper , I'll be getting the Bilstein 5100 shocks and getting new OEM springs. The Bilstein's run about $100 for each ($200 to level the front, $400 if you do all 4).

    With the addition of being able to level your truck you'll get a better ride.
