ReadyLift - 2.25'' FRONT LEVELING KIT W/ CONTROL ARMS


Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone, 

I recently purchased a 2018 GMC Sierra Crew Cab SLT All-Terrain package. I'm personally wanting to install a leveling kit and I believe I've selected one. I've read a lot about leveling kits for 2017-18 trucks and this seems like a great kit. However, there isn't many reviews on this product by ReadyLift. The appeal of this lift is the UCA replacements and the <2" height it allows. I'm wanting to go with 305/55/20 or 285/60/20 tires with my stock AT wheels and I want as much clearance possible. I found maybe 2-3 members on here with this lift and I'll quote them below. My question is, will this work with my All-Terrain package? In the description of the kit it states, "Will not work on Z71 packaged vehicles with factory Rancho® struts." Yet on ReadyLift's website, there is nothing supporting that statement. Does anyone have any information or review for this kit? Thanks!

Looks great from your stock tires! Thank you for replying, gives me some sign of relief.

I was on the same boat, couldn’t find many with it installed to answer some questions. But worked out, good luck!

Anyone using the Readylift UCA and 2.25 leveling with magniride? Looking to swap my stamped arms on my 18 Denali. My understanding is a relearn is required for magniride unless a relocation bracket is added.

your best bet is to use a relocation bracket, and most kits do include it.

Are you rubbing at all with the 305/55/20s?

Readylift tubular upper control arms and spacers installed. Raised the front end 2.25" Stock rear with stock 285-45/R22 Bridgestones (for now).

Love the new stance and the ride is great.

I had intended to use another company's relocation brackets for the magneride (Readylift doesn't make one) however after installation, the thicker tubular UCA placed the ride sensors right back in the stock position. No relocation bracket needed.  I couldn't be happier with the new setup. 07d6a08f7348f55a3bf1c237745d972c.jpg

just reading from TireRack, will this not work with the GMC All-terrain package???? Thats the one lift I had everything narrowed down to

That's what I read too and that's why I created the thread. But looking at the success rate at others on this thread like MallCrawl's Z71 package and Avolution's Denali, I think we're safe. 

The hardest part for me is finding tires that fit... but I think I'm going with the 305s. They have the best look of them all.
