For me, I cannot stand the 'raked' appearance and combined with the low hanging air dam... absolutely horrendous! Well, unless you're looking to plow snow.
I immediately went in search of a leveling kit and was ready to pull the trigger on the inexpensive RC kit when I remembered the Dmax's that I was ready to purchase was a Z71 LB which definitely rode better than the vehicle eventually purchased- LT SB. So much so that my wife, without being provoked, even commented on how the vehicle purchased seemed to be 'bouncier' than the one I was originally set on buying. This got me thinking that if adding preload, via the RC spacer kit, to the LT OEM setup without changing the struts is definitely not going to get better. With this I decided to kill two birds with one stone and research adjustable strut kits. I ended up going with the Bilstein 5100 setup along with their shocks in the rear. Did it yield the advertised 2" lift- close. Is it level- no. And to me, this is ok. Because it still allows me to haul a little bit before achieving the Carolina Squat/Tennessee Tilt/Cali Lean appearance lol. I got the bits locally via price match sales and if I remember correctly, around $220 for the front bits. I then searched eBay and found StreetRays sway bar lowering blocks for $28 and haven't noticed any issues thus far... vehicle aligned perfectly without tracking issues. I went this route to provide sway bar clearance to allow the recently installed larger wheel/tire combo- Black Rhino Sierra's fitted with Nokian Rotiiva AT's in the 275/55-20 variety. This has provided some very slight rubbing in certain turn angles. I suspect another 1/2" to get 'level' and this would be eliminated. This has me now pondering the Fox setup which is supposed to provide 2.5" of lift.
Sooo...if properly provoked, I could let this Bilstein setup go for a very reasonable price...PM me if interested. BTW- this would pretty much be a 'plug-n-play' since the FOX setup comes with springs, I wouldn't have to disassemble anything and ship as complete/ready to install units.
