I just had a 2.5" Skyjacker system installed in my truck. The front came out good, about 2 3/4" of lift, but I don't like the back with the add-a-leaf. It only lifted it about 1/2". It looks like the truck is dragging. I would like to have about 2" of lift in the back to maintain the stock rake of the truck. So, my question is, how much did the 4.5" system raise the back of the truck? And which method was used, 4.5" add-a-leaf or 4.5" replacement springs? Thanks

Lift kits are designed to lift/level the truck at the same time. For example, a 4.5" lift will lift the front of the truck 4.5" and bring the back up around two inches to make it level with the front.

So, my question is, how much did the 4.5" system raise the back of the truck? And which method was used, 4.5" add-a-leaf or 4.5" replacement springs?

So I guess to answer your questions, the 4.5" system raises the back of the truck approx 2.5" and raises the front 4.5". And the results are the same whether you go with the kit (add-a-leaf/block) or the system (springs).
