    Hello. I own a 2020 Raptor and I'm wanting to level the front 1.5". The Raptor is a new platform for me.

    What's the best route to take between the RPG perch collar and the ready lift leveling kit? The ready lift mounts between the shock and the body I assume and the collar to the bottom.

    I'm wanting to retain as much of the factory ride and geometry that I can. I love how the truck drives and don't want to compromise it too much.

    Thanks in advance.

    I just picked up a 2019 Ford Raptor and installed to level the front. Here's the crazy thing I had a 2018 Raptor and installed the RPG which look great and match the coal of your shocks.

    Both systems worked. It comes down how technical do you want to get do you want to do it correct you need to go with the coil springs if you intend to use your vehicle for off-roading, if the truck is going to be a pavement queen then the RPGs shouldn't be an issue. Again I did both and never had a problem with the RPG and had 8000 miles before selling the truck. One thing to be aware of. The installation cost were considerably different The coil springs ran about $800 with an alignment The RPG system was around $375 installed.

    I ran both the icon collars and then the eibachs, obviously not at the same time lol. The collars didn't seem to do much other than lift the front, ride really wasn't affected and they were about 250 plus 200 install. I wanted better spring performance though so I swapped in the eibach pro lift springs and I'm much happier. I got them on sale from stage 3 for 200 and install was again 200 bucks with alignment. Nose dive is just about all gone and off-roading is much more compliant and enjoyable.

    Thanks for sharing the experience with each. I’m looking at eibach front springs for my 2019 raptor. Do you recommend getting leaf springs for the back and if so, any particular one? Thanks.

    Yah I do recommend it, I went with icons multi rate leaf and have really enjoyed them. Deavers work too but I've seen a lot of people complain about them showing surface rust whereas the icons come painted.
