Hello, I'm new. I was wondering if anyone has a leveling kit for a 2008 Sierra 4x4, and if so has anyone had problems with it? I would like to get a leveling kit, the above the strut style not the control arm block.

Basically I want to make sure that I won't hurt the CV's or ball joints with the leveling kit.

Thanks in advance.

I have a 1.5 inch readylift kit. Its pretty nice, but I would recommend a kit that lifts at least 2 inches.

I put 3 kits on already. One on my 2008 crew, another on my wifes 2008 tahoe, and another on a buddys 2008 crew. I used the level kit from rough country. I used all three sims on the the trucks, and used just two on the tahoe ( one big and one liittle). three on the tahoe was two high.
I have got it down to one hour oto install.

I was looking at getting this kit, is this the one that everyone else is using, if so does it come with all the hardware for both sides?

I used the Truxxx 2-1/2" front kit, 1" rear. Cost me $400 for the kit (installed) and $100 for the alignment.

You WILL need an alignment!!!
