    Should I get a 3 inch level or a 2.5 inch level? I heard the 3 inch puts stress on your front end, but I also heard of the 3 inch doing no damage. I like the look of the rear end sagging a bit (3inch) but if its going to ruin the front end I don't want it lol. What do you guys think?

    Both of them will wear the ball joints prematurely. if your truck is 4 wheel drive both will cause the CV joints to wear faster also. I wouldn't go more than 2 inches.

    If you're not 4x4, you can go 3". Will still wear ball joints....and it's a biotch to install.

    I might just replace all balljoints (upper and lower) and then get the spacer put on cause I don't want one to break on me while I'm on the highway lol.
