I was wondering if you guys had any tips on how to get the height just right.It seems like I can never get my truck level.It will either be still low in the front,or look like it setting down in the rear.I cannot seem to get a happy medium.Do you all take measurements somewhere?

Well, in my case, I made it a point to baseline what the measurement from the floor to the edge of the fender centerlined w/the wheel. By doing so, I could always return it to where it was if something didn't turn out right.


Then cranked the bars as necessary to meet my objective while keeping track of the number of turns made. After an adjustment, one may need to jostle the frontend to settle it to its new location ~ repeat the process if needed. Anything over 4 turns really need to have the alignment chkd. Results may vary.

With each full turn of the bolt representing only 1/4" of lift I would think you could make some pretty small adjustments. Are you taking it for a spin around the block, to let it settle, while you're making your adjustments? If not, you might want to try that.
