A few years ago I added a 2.5" suspension spacer to level the front end of my truck. Every since I noticed that the front end is more sensitive to bumps and turns. I'm trying to find a better solution for my suspension because I feel that want i've done is not the best for my truck. What if any options do I have?

Do you
have the same problem?

If you want to lift the front. I suggest stronger springs. Have a spring shop check into this. It is a much safer way of raising your truck without changing handling characteristics.

What about lowering the rear to match the original front end height?

Yes but that will change the geometry.

You are better off putting the front back to where it belongs.
