    I have a '92 Cummins LE 2wd. I HATE the nose-down configuration of the Dodge. I bought a 2wd for the mileage, but I crave the look of a 4wd, even though I would rarely go off-road.

    Has anyone leveled (or even better) lifted their 2wd? I have heard that the Daystar coil spacers for the '94's are the same diameter and will work on the '92.

    Any thoughts????

    Buy a 4X4. With a Cummins the mileage will still be great!

    Not an option at this time, plus if I were going to sell it I would be inclined to get an older model Power Stroke 4x4.

    I'd at least like to get it level....

    trucks sit tail high for a reason, its to compensate for load. if you jack the front end up you are asking for trouble w/ a moderate load.

    If the truck has spring blocks in the rear you can remove them trying to lift the front won't work with the A arm set up Dodge uses.

    I agree with Randy if you want the look of 4 wheeldrive get a 4 wheel drive or just live with the low riding nose down look.

    Good Luck
