Is it just me or does the front look a tad high?

Why did you opt for JBA springs in the rear? And what hub-fender measurement did they put you at?

The fender flares are cut up higher in the front then the rear. Look at the body lines. Its level.

This is something that gets brought up quite a bit whenever someone levels these rigs.

i thought so myself after the install, i went with OME HD's in the front along with bilstein 5100 height adjustable struts. and i heard that the ome HD's have been known to lift more than 2''. so that along with the lowest setting on the 5100's giving me an extra inch. the front is a bit more than 3" total. so it may be sitting a bit higher in the front, especially after the rears break in
