Tires, wheels, and leveling kit
I have a 2012 Chevy Z71. I have a few questions I would like to ask. First off, I'm thinking about putting a leveling kit on my truck and was wondering I would need to replace the shocks. Also, what's the best leveling kit to go wit? Secondly, I'm thinking about putting the Toyo Open Country M/T's on it and was wondering if anyone had experience with them.2012 Chevy Silverado Z71 LTZ.

All depends on what leveling kit you go with. For my 2008 3500HD I had a performance parts level kit installed last year. Kit came with new torsion bar keys and shock brackets so you do not have to replace your shocks. Sorry - no experience with those tires.

Toyo M/T's are great everyday mud tires. I keep bouncing back and fourth between Trail Grapps and Toyo MT and both are really good. I noticed the Toyo's on my truck hopped a bit more than the Trail Grapps do. I am on my 2nd set of Trail Grapps and had 1 set of Toyo's.

Or you could skip the leveling kit and go right to the lift. That's where so many of us end up anyways. lol. Agree with Ajarman, Ready lift makes a good kit, however there's really nothing to them. There all pretty much the same. Good luck to you.2008 Silverado LT 5.3, Rancho 4", 18x9 XD Addicts, 295/70/18 Nitto Trail Grappler m/t's, Westin brush guard, Go Rino steps, Truxedo lo pro cover, magnaflow, tow mirrors.

Not all level kits are created equal!! I went with a performance upgrade when I installed my level kit. I went with the King Shock upgrade. With that came an adjustable coilover with a remote resevoir. It was just as expensive as any other 4" or 6" kit would have cost.
