Leveling Kits for 2wd?

I've looked around everywhere and cant seem to find one, are there leveling kits out there for a 2 wheel drive?

will a 4x4 kit work? It is just basically coil spring spacers. I'm 95% sure it will work the same

I would call the manufacturer and ask

You can buy the front lift spindles and brake lines from CST that is used in their lift kit for the 2wd and it will level it up. You can contact them for more info but when i was looking at some 2wd's there was a guy on the forums that did just the front spindles and brake lines and it was basically a level truck.

IIRC the CST kit requires different rims with more offset.

Here is something for 2wd 3rd Gen HD Dodges that I just stumbled upon.

SuperSprings - HD Front Coil Springs

These only raise the front by 1/2" but they look to be a much heavier rating.

I find my 2wd front coils to be much too soft. I even ordered 2wd Megacab, dually, Cummins front coils from the dealer & they were identical to my 2500 front coils.


My goals are different than yours as I want to lower the front of my truck 1 inch from stock. I've already trimmed a 1/4 coil to lower it a 1/2 inch but I want it lower yet.
Trimming these heavier Superspring coils might just do the trick.
