    Default Is alignment necessary with level kit.

    Hey guys, I just leveled my '13 sierra today and was wondering if the alignment was really necessary. I only brought the front up 2 inches.
    I guess I just want to hear from those guys who skipped it and if there was uneven tire wear later down the road.
    Thanks.

    Yes... the cost of an alignment is nothing compared to $500 - 600 worth of tires.

    I had my truck realigned and glad that I did! Adjustments were needed after the level kit was installed.

    I could take some pics and show that it is needed!! As was said before an alignment is much cheaper than buying 2 new tires.
