Leveling kit or torsion bars

Recommended Posts

Looking to raise front end a bit on 2005 silverado 1500. Not a lot just to level it out a bit, thinking about a 1.5 in leveling kit. Is there any benefit to doing leveling kit vs cranking torsion bars? Price and recommendations for 1.5 in leveling kit?

I turned the torsion bars on mine.  This was very simple.  Took about 8 turns to level out and the ride appears to be the same.  This is a 2020 Silverado Highcountry 2500

A couple newby questons:  Does the front end alignment need to be adjusted after a lift/torsion bar change, I hear it can change the camber?  Also, if one does a leveling kit, I heard the ride stays pretty much the same however, wouldn't it change your headlight alignment when pulling or hauling a load?  Thanks in advance!

Anytime you change your ride height it will change your headlight alignment. What i do i park of the most level surface i can and take a before measurement of the height and after i level/lift i just realign the headlight to the height it was before to adviod blinding other drivers.
