Hey all I have asked this question before and would still like to hear from sombody that has installed

a Maxx cam Key kit in a 2500 HD ? Now I have helped my son install a maxx cam 2 kit in his '03

canyon and it looks great and the project turned out fine. Here on this site I read alot about level kits beaing installed on silverados/sierras with photos and most are 1/2 ton projects. Now in the many topics and projects talked about on here Levels,lifts shocks tires rims of all types I would think

SOMEONE has used the Maxx Cam level keys???

 

I would like to hear some pro's / con's on this product on a H.D. truck Anyone?

 

Thanks in advance Dave :chevy::cheers:

The pro's are the lift achieved, the con's are the shortened lift you put on your front suspension components if you go over 2.5". Most of the kits you hear about are the 2" RC leveling kit that justs a block under the front struts to achive the lift. You could have just cranked your torsion bars to achive 2" for free.

 

Make sure you get an alignment after the installation :thumbs:

Hey, Sea thanks for the reply, I'm also trying to get rid of the rake and won't be going over 2.5 in.. I guess steven thinks that H.D.

trucks have struts??? Glad to hear that the ride is still the same .But I just thought I like to hear about Maxx Cam products being

used by some of our members.

Thanks for the info I'll post what I do and shoot before and after Pics

Understand that the more you crank, the worse the rides going to get. No I fully understand the 2500's have torsion bars. I was saying that most of what your reading online is people talking about 1500's and they have struts.

 

Anything above 2.5" cranking the torsion bars is going to affect the ride. Your limiting the down travel of your suspension.

I had the Suspension Maxx, Maxx Cam3 installed on my '11 2500 HD Z71 4x4 CC LTZ as soon as it was introduced into the marketplace in December of 2010. Raised the front suspension on the keys to 2.5 inches. I have not altered the rear suspension. The rear of my truck is only 3/4 inches higher than the front which I like, not noticeable and the ride did not change. I intially tried to just have the stock keys adjusted to give me the same lift height, but the ride was too stiff for me. I am very satisfied with the setup and the truck rides excellent.

 

Due to the frame change on the '11 HD the normal torsion bar unloading tool will not work and you will have to get the Super T Maxx-2 heavy duty torsion bar unloading tool or another manufacturers tool. My setup was professionally installed locally and since my installer nor any of our local Chevy dealers had the tool I just went ahead and purchased the tool also. My cost breakout for the keys and the tool was $418.00 delivered.

 

I realize there are many products in the marketplace now that will facilitate what you would like to do with your truck. The folks at Suspension Maxx did right by me and their product at the time (December 2010) was the only one that would work on the new 2500HD Silverado/GMC after I did a lot reasearch. I am a very happy camper with my setup.

Theres no way reindexed keys provide a better ride if both are lifted no more than 2.5". They do the exact same thing only one alows more lift. The reindexed keys only allow you to crank more. :dunno:

I believe the front shock extension spacers that came with the kit may have made the difference, versus none used with just cranking on the stock keys. Regardless, my ride is excellent.

Well when I looked up the "kit", it doesn't show the shock extenders and maybe thats that helps your ride some. :thumbs:
