    It helps reduce it, it doesn't avoid it. Any kit that still uses a spacer on top of the strut increases the total length of the strut and therefore allows the suspension to overextend. Their kit just reduces that amount of overextension as it's only a 1.5" strut spacer instead of a 2" or 2.5".

    My 2016 2WD still has it's stock tires and it doesn't look "Too bad" with a 2" TGC leveling kit, Zone UCA's and Zone 1.5" body lift. I couldn't justify changing the tires yet seeing as they only have 6000 miles on them.

    At some point I'll get bigger tire but for now I can deal with it.

    I did bilstein 5100 set at 2.1. Hankook atms stock size 33". It cost me about 400 total with shocks, install and front alignment. It still rides great.

    Yes just went through this hell. Got the coil spacers and it worked, but makes the front end feel like shit. Worked nice tho as it made room for my new wheels/tires. But wanted my front end to feel solid again so i went with the Fox 2.0's all around,, its a completely different truck now.. well worth the money

    The bilstein 5100 shocks are adjustable for the front from 0.75-2.8 inches. Most set them at 2.1 to have about 1 inch of rake for towing. I love them.
