Review & Install Video

Hey, everybody. I'm Justin with and this is my review and install of Rough Country's two-and-a-half-inch leveling kit with rear shocks, fitting your 2015 and newer F-150. A leveling kit's gonna be the easiest and most affordable way to change the altitude on your new truck without totally altering the ride quality in the process. Now, you should be checking out the Rough Country kit if you wanna get rid of the factory rake on your new F-150. You wanna get that front end in the air a little bit more to match the rear, giving you some more ground clearance in the process. Now, this is also going to be a great way to stuff a bigger wheel and tire under your new rig. In fact, Rough Country says you can easily squeeze 33s under there, but I've personally seen guys run 35s on a two-and-a-half inch level. It's all gonna come down to your offset wheel and tire size. Now, in thinking about going with a leveling kit as opposed to a more involved full suspension lift kit, I'd probably ask you what you're gonna be doing mostly with your truck. Is it gonna be a daily driver, or a tow rig that will be on road most of the time, or do you plan on subjecting your rig to some serious off-road duties? Well, if it's gonna be mostly a family hauler with some occasional tow duties, I'd probably say the leveling kit is great way to go for the reasons I already mentioned. It's gonna save you a ton dough and it's also gonna be much easier to install, saving you some money there. Now, most leveling kits are gonna consist of some kind of strut spacer for the front or some kind of strut extension. That is the case here with the Rough Country kit, but this kit's also pretty nice in the fact that it does include some stuff for the rear. You're looking at additional one-inch blocks for the rear along with their premium Rough Country N2.0 shocks. Now the rear is something you guys can experiment with at home. Again, this is a leveling kit so expect a pretty level stance when installing this full kit. But if you do want to maintain the slightest bit of rake, meaning the front's gonna be slightly lower than the rear, then you might wanna go with a slightly larger block for the rear. Again, something you can totally play around with on your own. Check out the forums or the product page for more info there. Breaking down the individual components of Rough Country's kit here again, we do have the front strut spacers, T 60-61 build aluminum. Very nice material here, guys. Basically gonna help resist any corrosion or rust over the years. Just add to the durability of the product. Again, guys, this is Rough Country's two-and-a-half-inch leveling kit, so expect the front to be raised roughly two-and-a-half-inches when installed when compared to your factory ride height. In addition to the front setup, Rough Country does again include some premium N2.0 shocks, the one-inch additional rear blocks that you will use in conjunction with your factory blocks, and finally, some longer U-bolts. Now, the rear shocks are a nice addition as they are designed for on and off-road use, and they do include what Rough Country calls their velocity sensitive valving technology, which is gonna basically react like an adjustable dampener, but you're not gonna have to mess with any knobs or adjustments, anything like that. It's gonna do it for you all on the fly. Now, Rough Country claims this provides excellent ride quality on the highway and some solid control in gnarly off-road situations. And if you should ever need it, guys, this entire kit is backed by their lifetime warranty. On the topic of price, guys, the Rough Country kit is going to be one of your more premium options here at But again, you do have to factor into the price that this does include a bunch of stuff for the rear, which a lot of the other kits do not. Ultimately, guys, again, this thing is only gonna run you a couple hundred bucks. Compare that to a couple thousand dollars with those full suspension lift kits. And you're gonna have to think this thing is a bargain when your number one objective is just to get the truck in the air a little bit more and stuff a bigger wheel and tire under there. I've said it before, guys, but I'll say it again. A leveling kit is going to be much easier to install compared to the more involved suspension lift kits. But overall, there still is a fair amount of work. I'll call it two out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter, and a few hours from start to finish in the garage. Now, of course, you will need to remove your front struts in order to install the brand new spacers, along with removing the factory rear shocks, and installing the brand new Rough Country units along with those one-inch block extensions. Again, not a terrible amount of work, but you do have to know what you're doing in the garage. So make sure you have a good set of tools on hand. A lift will definitely be your friend here, but if this all sounds a little bit too intimidating, don't be afraid to leave this one up to your local shop. So to summarize, guys, Rough Country two-and-a-half-inch leveling kit will be a solid and affordable way to get the truck in the air a little higher. It'll easily fit 33s and even possibly 35s with a little modification. So be sure to learn more about the Rough Country kit here, at

Remove your Rake. Most trucks roll off the factory line with a slight drop in the front of the truck which isn't very appealing. If that isn't a look you want for your F-150, then you would need Rough Country's Leveling Lift Kit with Premium N2.0 Series rear shocks. This Leveling Lift Kit provides a 2 in. lift to the front, bringing it level with the rear of the truck for a more rugged appearance while maintaining the factory ride quality.

Quality Construction. The Rough Country Strut Extension Kit offers increased durability while leveling the front of the truck to the rear. The spacers are made out of aircraft quality T6061 billet aluminum that provides resistance against corrosion but also offers a great look to your truck.

Shocking Performance. The included Premium N2.0 shock absorber was engineered by Rough Country's expert team to provide extreme performance for both on and off-road use. The heavy duty chrome hardened 9/16" piston rod offers the strength and durability that is needed out on the trail or road while allowing fluid movement in a massive 1-3/8" bore.

Bolt-On Installation. Rough Country's Leveling Lift Kit includes everything that is needed for a straight forward installation requiring only basic tools, and dissembling of the existing struts is not necessary.

Further Protection. Backed by Rough Country's Lifetime Limited Warranty, you'll be protected from defects in this kit for the life of your truck. Some exclusions apply, please see manufacturer's full warranty for details.

Application. This Rough Country 2 in. Leveling Lift Kit with Shocks is specifically design to fit on all 2015 to 2017 2WD and 4WD F-150s. It is not compatible on the Raptor model.

Why does this say it comes with (2) Rear Premium N2.0 Series Shocks (2) Strut Extensions (2) 1" Lift Blocks Hardware When this is a front level kit, why would it come with rear shocks? Also, why does it say (2) 1" lift blocks?


  • The Rough Country 2 in. Leveling Lift Kit w/ Shocks comes with the strut extensions to fit the front, which do not require new struts. Since the kit also comes with rear lift blocks, it is also going to lift the rear of the vehicle as well. Lifting the rear will require new shocks as the stock units are too short.

This product is stated in the title as being a 2" leveling kit, however during the video it says this review is on the 2.5" rough country leveling kit. I have not seen another kit on your website showing a rough country 2.5" kit? Could you clarify is these front spacers are 2" or 2.5"?


  • Hello! Thank you for pointing that out, I am not quite sure where the mixup came from,. This kit is a 2" leveling kit, not 2.5". Thanks!

    Easy DIY Install

    I've never worked on suspensions before but considering the quotes I received in my area were between $650-$800 for both front and rear work, I decided to do this myself. I own a 2016 F150 XLT FX4 w/Sport package. I went with this kit because it indicates a 2" front lift and a 1" rear lift and I wanted to keep a little bit of rake on my truck AND be able to fit it in my garage still. Stock front height was measured at 37 1/16" and rear stock height at 39 1/4". The install instructions are 90 worthless but there are really good videos online for this type of install. You will need a spring compressor because the orientation of the strut will have to rotate once the front spacers are installed to allow for the rotation offset between the original bolt positions and the spacer bolts, and you can't do that without the spring compressed. Front installation took me about 2 hrs each side going slow and being meticulous, and rear only took 35 mins each side with shock replacements. Finished height in front is 39 1/4" (up 2 3/16"), and rear is 40 5/8" (up 1 3/8"). Got an alignment immediately but shop says that alignment numbers can improve with camber/caster kits. I have that on order now and will install myself and go back for my lifetime alignment.

    The kit leaves a mild rake to the front of the truck. The install is simple, but the instructions are awful. Mine is pictured with Nitto MT 35" tires on my 15 Lariat FX4.

    This is my first lifted truck. In the past, I've avoided any types of leveling / lifts because of the negative things you hear about poor handling and ride quality. After this kit was installed by me and a friend, my truck seemed to actually handle a little better and there was no change in ride quality. I'm extremely impressed with the quality of the product and the added style to my truck.

    Not that easy.

    Me and my brother installed this kit. First off, it's not really a level kit. This kit includes a 1 " spacer for the rear springs, new shocks for the rear as well as the 2" front spacers.15' thru 17' crew cab f150 has a 2.5" rake. Put the front spacers in, and you have a 1/2" rake, then install rear spacer, and you come out with a 1.5" rake. So after all that work, your truck will still not be level. To install, you have to disassemble your cv axel, on top of all the other steering/suspension components. If you don't, you risk damage. Also I had to rent a spring compressor to be able to rotate spring 180 degrees. The strut studs/ bolts were a pain to get out. Just a heads up for everybody, if you are a novice with not all the right tools and knowledge, this will take a loooong time. If you are an experienced mechanic, with the right tools, it shouldn't take more than 3 hours.

    Rough country lift

    This is a great kit for the price, you get everything needed for the install. Everything goes on easy, the only problem is that the instructions could be a lot better but it's fairly easy to install so its not that big of a deal.
