Kryptonite Leveling Kit


Recommended Posts

So I installed a kryptonite stage 3 leveling kit on my sierra HD. Cranked up the keys so it’s just about level, it had quite a bit of rake to it before. Came out to a total of ~3.5 inches lift in the front and 1 inch in the back from the new bilstein shocks included.  It looks amazing but my issue is it rides rough. I don’t want to lower the front and lose that nice stance it has. Can I install the kryptonite shock extenders as well with this kit to get my ride quality back?  Or any other suggestions?

How long have you been driving with the new kit on? What do you mean by it rides rough? I installed the same Kryptonite Stage 3 kit but with Fox 2.0's all around about 4k miles ago. My stock shocks were shot. After the install, the truck rode much more firm, but didn't have the rough ride and huge banging impacts that it used to have. It still rides rough over rough roads (especially here in Denver). I chalk it up to the fact it is an HD truck. It isn't going to ride smooth over rough roads. But it can ride firm.

 

On a separate note... I see you have the Rek-Gen mudflaps. My setup is close to yours (2016 GMC Sierra, 20x10 Fuels). Do you have any more pics of your truck with mudflaps?

Had it on for a week now. The potholes are what are real bad. Since it’s turned up a little much those shocks don’t have room to stretch down on potholes or turning into places. Yea I don’t expect it to ride amazing it is a hd truck. I ordered the shock extensions gonna put those in and turn keys down hopefully that should help. It truly feels right now like the front shocks are just solid steel. Will look for some better pics of the mudflaps very happy with them.  It won’t upload photos says to large will get some on here in a bit

You cranked indexed bars.  If you wanted a 3 or 4 inch lift, you should have bought a 3 or 4 inch lift kit instead of a 2 inch level and then ram the torsion bar adjuster bolts all the way up on lift keys.

 

Turn the front back down and you will get your ride back.  Or, install a proper lift kit and you will REALLY get your ride back.  This is what happens when people take the cheap way out trying to lift with a level.
