Um...No. It will simply pivot the truck forward. Your fender height will be the same in the front.

Now block and a torsion bar crank and you'll be lifted and level.

I'd imagine that the front end would be tilted down because of the lift on the rear. It wouldn't lift or lower only tilt the appearance.

Also known as pivoting forward on the front axle.

If may have deceived you to think so, but it also just pivoted the front of the truck downward at the rear axle. If you measured at the highest point of the rear fender, it would also be the same.

Off-topic but the pm couldn't go through. Says you have me blocked or are not allowed to recieve pms???

I still have that tiny dash vent that goes beside the bezel. I was cleaning out my inbox and totally forgot about this. If you still want it let me know.
