    Hey Bekah, I'm new on here and also just bought a 2010 silverado!!! It's my first truck!
    I'm planning on installing a leveling kit soon and was wondering, if you find out any information could you pass it on to me? That'd be really helpful!
    Also if you know anything about what the max size tires i need to run once i install the leveling kit that'd also be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Bekah;

    Welcome to the club. There's information about this in the suspension section I'm almost sure of it. Maybe post your question in there.

    I ran the ReadyLift 2.25 kit and loved it. Also there are a few other members that ran that kit, but it is about twice the price as a 2" RCX level.

    Welcome to the Club!!!

    x2 on the Ready lift 2.25...quality and the perfect size to get an even level without having a pre-runner look.

    And for @Zac72497 , I was running ~33s (285/70/17s), which barely fit without having to grind anything. I think that'll be about the largest tire that'll fit.

    Both the old tires and the new are BFG A/T KOs.

    That's a really nice looking truck, some more pics please. Welcome to GMTC.

    A catback dual exhaust would look and sound sweet on that truck.

    I like the 20s on your truck better than the 20s on my 2013 Silverado.

    I personally don't think trucks with a 2" leveling kit look all that different when done.
