If I go with a 2" or 2.5" levelling kit can I also put a add a leaf or something in the back to stiffen it up a bit,and what kit seems to work the best.I'm thinking of ditching my stock 20's for 17's and want to know what backspacing I need and what size tire I can run with no rub issues?I'm new to dodge and when I go over a bump my front end seems to bounce like an old crown vic,is this normal or do I need new shocks?Thanks for the help.

Most of the kits are the same...
I think you can get 33's easily with the keys..
Sounds like you need new shocks

Truck is a 2007 quad cab 4x4 with 20" rims.Want to go with 17" dick cepek dc1 black rims and a 35 " tire,just not too sure on what tire yet.I also need shocks as well.What is the better of the levelling kits?

if you can ditch the stock shocks do it. Mine blew out with in six months. I went with rancho 5000 because thats all they had at the time. It seem to make the truck ride a lot better.

I just added the leveling kit and the front sits a little lower than the back. but it does make difference. It has alot better stance than it did before.

i also run 33" inch nittos on and they dont rub at all anywhere

when it comes to the kits, I am not sure if there is a "better" one. The main differences are 2 and 2.5" kits. Some say the 2.5s put too much strain on the CVs, and cause vibration. Some have seen that with their 2" kits.

I have a Hell Bent Steel kit. Seems very solid.
