I've got a hellbent steel leveling kit on mine, I love it, only about $75 bucks, works great, and it's solid metal, no plastic. had mine for about 3 years now, no problems with it at all.

Budget, Hell Bent Steel, or any steel spacer.
Best: Carli Suspension

I went with MAXX Suspension, great parts, very high quality and nice price.



I have had trouble with steel spacers cracking. Maybe the Cummins is to heavy.

Carli does make some nice stuff, but I have found a lot of it to be re-branded parts from others such as Ballistic Fabrication.

Here are Carli's Dodge Ram Control Arms with the Ballistic logo on them.
