    I ordered my kit from suspension maxx. I talked to several shops who told me they didn't know of a product that would lift the rear and keep the auto ride intact. Larry at suspension maxx was easy to deal with and knew exactly what I needed.
    It's scheduled to arrive via UPS today.
    I have an SLT with autoride, but no magneride.

    I plan to install it today or tomorrow.

    2.5" Front - SMXGM725

    2" Autoride Rear - SMX15200M

    Rear Shock extender - SMXHDSKEX

    Currently, my front fender is 36" off the ground and my rear quarter is 37". I'm hoping this combination will decrease the rake to .5"
    I want it to look level or very slightly higher in the back.

    I finished mine this weekend too, but you got off cheaper than I did.
    I went with the 2.5" / 2" from suspension maxx. I also installed the rear shock extenders and autoride brackets. The rear was more involved than I thought, but nothing terrible.

    My front is now at 38.75"and the rear is 39.25"

    Im happy with it and the CV angles aren't as bad as I imagined. The ride is as good as stock from what I can tell.
    I took it to the alignment shop today and they trued it with no problems. It drives straight and tight.
