2014+ Leveling Kits

Recommended Posts

Mines 2wd but just put a 1.5 inch level on the front. Rear is stock. Gonna go with bigger tires when these wear out. I’m satisfied with the level because i still wanted some rake with towing. 04679A88-A92B-4977-9BC8-CAB58374200B.thumb.png.ba0ccd42fba17d12a5aeccdda51ac903.pngNo difference in ride.

Looks good. It’s a shame that we truck lovers have to go through so much these days just to make our 4 wheel drive trucks look like 4 wheel drive trucks!

Seems like it's mostly GM that doesn't get it, the HD trucks from other manufacturers look the part.

Yup, because image is very important; you have to have others know you drive a 4wd truck regardless if it is used or not. It can be easily rectified by placing strategic 4wd emblems/stickers on the truck to let others know you aren't driving around in a lesser much less macho 2wd truck at the local starbucks...

on the rear kit, how did the ubolts fit over the leaf springs? did the centers of the ubolts sit flat against the leafspring?

Added Bilstein 5100s on highest setting and Toyo Open Country AT 2 at 295/55/20.  Ride is NIGHT AND DAY different from the OEM "Max trailering" shocks.  They were basically shot at only 42,000 miles.  Tires rub the sway bar on BOTH sides when moving forward... rubbing seems to begin before full lock so I've had to adjust my driving habits just a bit.

 

It makes me wonder if 285/60/20 would fit without rubbing?

I recently upgraded from my 2017 Sierra 1500 SLT to a 2019 Sierra 1500 SLT.  So of course I did my usual upgrades: window tint, spray-in bedliner, 2.5" level kit and Fuel Beast 20" wheels with 305/55R20 rubber.  I did the level kit(s) over the weekend and put the new wheels and tires on.  I think it looks much better now.  I just left Belle Tire getting the front end re-aligned, so I should be good to go.  I do have a slight tire rub at full lock at the rear of the wheel well, so I'll have to trim back the plastic/carpet in that area.  Other than that, it looks great.  The level kit was a Motofab 2.5" in the front, and a Motofab 1" in the rear.  For some reason, the 1" in the rear gave me a lot more than that though.  

 

Prior to the leveling kits, my front height (ground to bottom of fender flare) was 36.875" and my rear height was 38".50".  After the leveling kit, my front height is now 39.50 (increase of 2.625") and the rear height is 40.75" (increase of 2.25")

Does anybody know what the differences are between a top mount and bottom mount spacer to level?

 

The top mounts seem to be more expensive and may require cutting the length of the top shocks bolts from what I can tell, so are there any positives to going with the more expensive top mounts?

I've always used top mounted spacers.  The bottom mounts look a bit sketchy in my view.  The top mounts use their own studs (the stock studs get buried in the spacer) so I've never had to cut the stock studs - but then I've always used a 2 1/2" kit.  I guess a thinner spacer may cause the studs to protrude through the top of the spacer, and require you to cut them off.  I think that the top mount is the way to go, even if it costs a few bucks more.

What did you do with your stock wheels? Looks great, BTW.
