    I have a 2011 ram 1500 4d quad cab and my front end sits to low was looking around a different leveling kits? but idk what the best way to do it would be dont want the truck to ride like crap i did spacers with a jeep once and it was never the same. What would be a good way to lift the front end? Also one of my front shocks is bad so probably would make sense just to change them all anyone know what a good aftermarket replacement would be?

    You need a set of Bilstein front shocks. I think 1500 is the "model" number, but double check that. They're adjustable for height. They ride good. If you look in my sig, you'll see that's what I run in my 11. I did Bilsteins all the way around. I'm very satisfied with how my 11 looks and rides.

    Look in the Lifted section. You'll find your answer there.

    Check with Matt or Nick before you buy. Always good to patronize sponsors.

    2.1 on bilsteins solves your bad “shock” and will bring your truck level with little to no front droop. You can keep your stock wheels. Rear ride height does not change with adding just shocks. The ride will be firmer than stock is a negative, but the positive is that with that firmer ride comes better cornering and responsiveness.
