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.2013 Sierra ext 4x4-- 4.8L

Yes... the cost of an alignment is nothing compared to $500 - 600 worth of tires.2009 Chevy Silverado 2500HDLT 6.0L w/ Towing Package, Dick Cepek GM8 Rims, Dick Cepek FC II 33X11.50R17,RKSport Ram-Air Hood(Functional), Lazer Lite Aluminum Tonneau Cover, Road Armor Stealth Bumper, PIAA Lighting, Diablo Trinity Tuner, Diablew Custom Tune, BullyDog Cold Air Intake, American Racing Headers w/highflow cats, Corsa Performance Sport Exhaust, Custom Striping, Black Bowties front and rear, Fuel Grille Inserts, Recon Headlights, Readylift Shocks, Readylift Upper Contol Arms, 2" Blocks in the Rear..

I had my truck realigned and glad that I did! Adjustments were needed after the level kit was installed.2010 GMC SIERRA CREW CAB (Silver) 4x4, ReadyLift 2.5" Level Kit, 305/60/18 Dick Cepek Mud Country, Go Rhino Nerf Bars, Husky Liners front and rear, Bushwacker Bed Rail Caps, SCT Programmer.

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.
