Has anyone installed a front end leveling kit on their SD?

I am thinking about doing it but wanted some advice from anyone who may have done it already.

Thanks.

Yes, I have the Skyjackers and have photos of the finished product. Love them but wish they were black. Easy install. Pull wheels, band springs the springs, disconnect shocks and brake line bracket. Put frame on jacks and lower front end. Simple. Takes a little time and a buddy to help makes it go by fast. A couple beers help too.

I would have purchased those but they were out of stock when I was in the market for them.

Thank you sir.

I have been looking at another brand made by Summit Engineering so I will give skyjackers some serious thought as well.

I used these and they work great. Just need a big jack to lift the frame up high enough and drop the axle down to install. Or you could compress the spring.

I used banding material from our shipping department. 3 bands then jacked the truck up and set the frames on jacks. You have to use muscle but done realtively easily.

how much did the cab raise in comparison to stock? I'm looking to do this, but park in a parking garage.

If you were asking me, about 1-3/4" at Cab Lights. Front bumper is between 2-3/8" to 2-1/2".
