    Don't you have to buy taller shocks with leveling kits?

    Nope. Been looking at a few leveling kits for my 2008 Silverado since I have been having problems touching the bed rails with a gooseneck cattle trailer when pulling out of a steep driveway. Luckily no major damage yet but you can see a few marks on the bed rail caps. Gooseneck is extended as far as it can go and still keep the rear end of the trailer from dragging the ground and have the torsion bars on the truck cranked almost to the max which helped a lot. Usually no problems pulling out when loaded but the empty trailer gives me a fit. Most of the kits I have seen have new keys for the torsion bars and a new extended bracket to replace your lower shock bracket so you can keep your current shocks.

    When i put the leveling kit on my 03,i got the full leveling kit from RC...came with shocks,rear blocks,torsion keys,u-bolts,etc. If i went with just the front leveling kit,i wouldnt of had to get the shocks...So the answer is no if you just get the front kit

    the ready lift front level i came with mounted to the top of the strut, moved the whole thing down in relation to the truck, and the shock along with it, so no, it didnt need longer shocks.

    Sweet. Since I don't need taller shocks, it looks like I'll be installing a leveling kit a week from today. Next weekend I will be replacing my front hub/bearing assemblies so I'll go ahead and install the leveling kit I've been wanting since I'll already be down there an have everything torn apart. Both of those jobs would require an alignment so I'll do them at the same time and get one alignment.


    I may need to get those nerf bars sooner than expected...

    Is this the kit you have installed?

    Most of the kits I keep seeing are $150 to $300 for nothing more than 2 metal rings!!
