Hello Clayton, The Ride Right lift in 2.5, does it level the vehicle or does it leave the rake to the front leaving the rear higher for towing purposes??

I'm not looking for the rake, want it level, please advise on what my choices are for this set up, thanks

I used the Teraflex leveling kit in my 2.5" Clayton lift and it was nearly dead on with just the 1' spacer (didn't need both spacers), maybe 1/4 inch of rake but it wasn't noticeable at all. If I had used the full leveling kit (both spacers) I think it would have been too much.

It removes some rake, but not all of it. Leaves about 3/4” according to Clayton. Which I think is perfect. I never measured on mine, but below are a couple different side shots of mine with a Clayton 2.5”.

You could add a small coil spacer in the front with the lift. It can easily handle it with the adjustable parts that come in the kit. But I don’t think it’s really needed unless you want that perfect level look or the rear to look low sometimes.

Thanks for the reply's

I don't want any rake, I'm over the nose dive on the highway, I live in Florida where we drive 80 and go to 0 in less than 60 feet, so I'm looking for level side of things,

Keeps the ideas coming, and pics, thanks everyone!!!

I have a .75" spacer on the front with my Clayton 2.5" Ride Right and due to the weight of my front bumper, winch and lights, it still has a slight rake to it. Maybe if I didn't have all that stuff on the front, it might be level.
