Hi,

I am trying to level my 2012 2500 crew cab - does it need the 2" lift to make it look right or will the 1" kit do it?

I don't have a 2500 but my best advice would be to measure the front and rear fender heights and see what the difference is. If your front is 2 inches lower than the back, then a 2" leveling kit would make them pretty even

You should have about 3" of rake right now, so a 2" would be about right. I have a 2" level kit from Top Gun Customz that I am selling...

Yep I have 3.25" Rake - but its getting an A.R.E MX cap so I will remeasure after it gets that - what does the kit come with? It seems I will need shocks for the front..

I had a 2.5"(i think) ReadyLift. leveled it out pretty good, but hated the ride.

I didn't need to replace the shocks, but if you want to upgrade, Bilstein 5100's are a good way to go.
