@Kengrier, are you putting a 2" lift kit on in addition to the 2" leveling kit?

You can't do that without causing problems with your cv axles, upper control arms, and drive shaft because that would be the same as a 4" lift. Max you can go is about 2 1/2 " without problems unless you put a Superlift kit on. The Superlift uses a diff drop and other methods to compensate for that much lift without causing problems.
