    Default Leveling kit opinions and experience....

    I have a 2002 Silverado Ext cab 4x4 that I have been thinking of leveling the front end. I am running 265/75/16 tires with 16x7 wheels with a 0mm offset. I would like to level the front end, but would consider a small leveling lift. I'm just looking for ideas right now. Any pictures or at least experience/opinions would be greatly apprecitated.

    Hey there, I did a front end 2" leveling kit from Max Trac. Not a large difference, but noticeable. I have some photo's of it in my garage if you'd like to see what they look like. Good luck and let us know what you finally decide on!

    If you wouldn't mind posting or sending the pics that would be great. I just bought my truck about a month ago and I'm trying to get it to where I want it to be. As soon as I finish in the next few weeks I will definately post pictures of it on here.

    I did a Rough Country 2" level kit. I did their full kit with the blocks in the back and shocks included. My frame gained 2 inches but my front bumper gained about 5 and my rear gained 1 1/2". Took about 2 hours to install taking my time. Here are some before and after pics with my 265/75 R16's still on. I still haven't taken a pic with the 285's yet.
