  1. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    Here’s the CST 2wd lift but it’s a spindle lift and not a bracket lift which will poke your wheels out about half inch tops unlike every other lift about twice that of CST. https://cstsuspension.com/352-lift-kit-2014-18-1500-2wd-truck.html You can actually get it much cheaper if you shop around Sent from above

    CST does have leveling coil overs but require new UCA’s to be installed too which is a better ride than spacer blocks and replaces your front struts and coils at the same time. This is the same setup I went with before I decided to just do the full lift. The same lift “will” work on your 2wd truck too but has parts you won’t need too which you could sell to someone that would give top dollar for exceptional quality, just a thought. Sent from above

    I could be mistaken but I believe they’ve been out for years just not as a package till recently Sent from above

    Try taking out the lower strut spacer and go from there. You’ll still have approximately 2” up front but may help with the rubbing. Do not recommend steering stops, you’ll 100% regret it! This is the main reason there are so many leveled trucks on used car sites, get into it not realizing the negative end results. Don’t remember the level setup you’ve installed, can you please brief me Sent from above

    Bingo! When first started same BS was said to me, never had a level before until worried about getting into parking garages and it’s amazing the amount of bad information spewed out in these forums by either very cheap asses knowing damn well it’s going to rub but are either to stupid or just miserable people that think it’s ok and no big deal to have rubbing based on looks instead or then those that don’t even have the same size the OP requested about. I went from front and rear leveling blocks, new front and rear Bilstein 5100’s to then needing new +1 offset wheels which I sold stock wheels at the time the new wheels came out and donated the funds to a single mom with three kids at the tire store that needed new tires. I bought new wheels, tires and rode like CRAP! I was lucky to hear from people with actual experience not made up crap heard from he said she said etc etc, instead of buying front coil-overs I should just do the CST Lift which best fit my criteria with zero widening of the track width and ruining my stock turning radius and after consulting with my Off-Road shop that I frequently use for all my trucks and SUV’s I was told it’s the best out there. So I jumped on it and never looked back. I’d advise anyone looking to do a level to do a coil over level for better handling and much smoother ride but you’ll definitely need new UCA’s if doing 2.5 leveling coil overs. Good luck and God Bless! Sent from above

    No need to start feeling that insecure, wasn’t pointing the finger at you. Just made it clear that lots of people out there have no idea what they’re talking about especially getting involved in something they’ve got no idea what they’re talking about which misleads people into having more expenses.

    You’d be surprised as to how many people actually put out misleading wrong information out there on leveling and tire size especially 15 1/2 - 18’s. In the past, I’ve called out a bunch of BS’ers claiming their tire larger sizes on these model years didn’t rub when leveled even some saying it didn’t rub cause their tires were already on before the level, lmao! And then find them down the road on another thread talking about their rubbing issues. People: Leveling WILL cause rubbing issues on years 15 1/2 - 18’s GM 1500’s running 20” wheels when adding anything bigger than stock size tires. Another thing, leveling will cause your truck to ride rougher than stock especially adding E rated tires which is common on larger tires like 285/60/20’s. You’ll also need to buy new offset wheels in order to get the rubbing to stop and buying new uca’s doesn’t guarantee to stop the rubbing which is why I jumped on the “much smoother than leveling” Badass CST 4.5” lift. When you consider the cost that goes into the leveling parts, wheels, shocks/struts and labor, it’s a no brainer! You should never “ever” go cheap on your suspension, it’s your vehicles foundation. Most trucks that are traded in are traded in due to bad riding trucks caused by people that want the look but don’t have a quality suspension, all lifts are not equal, you get what you pay for. If you’re on s budget? Save until you can afford to do it right cause then you’ll actually not only enjoy looking at your truck but you’ll love driving it too and not need a throw up bag and Advil for the ride along Sent from above
  9. Being that I’ve never really kept a vehicle long enough to have had any of these breakdowns, I’ve always had an extended warranty added just in case I did keep it. You’re correct about hit or miss. I’ve got friends with Fords and GM’s with many miles on them but very well maintained miles with Zero mechanical issues with either and they too have extended warranties just in case. My factory warranty is out on my 16 Yukon once it hit 36k but has an extended 100k warranty. Some may think a 5 year 200k extended warranty is a waste of money but I’d agree with you, $500-$600 per year is damn well worth having one considering what we all pay for some stupid worthless mods.

    Do your homework, do the numbers yourself. Getting new uca’s is no 100% not going to rub. You want as much space for tire flexing as possible. Level $200 plus Level requires new UCA’s $500 plus New wheels $1000 plus New rear shocks if raising rear which you’ll most likely want to do $200 This is the cost of the badass CST 4.5” lift which keeps every thing stock width not needing spacers and stock turning radius https://www.newlevelmotorsports.com/cskc3191.html Sent from above
  14. If you can get it up on jacks then it’ll be worth keeping it whole, no point cutting it then having to attempt to weld it back. Sent from above
