    Default Rear shackle leveling kit

    Here is a pic of my silverado with a rear leveling kit on it. For some reason it didnt level my truck at all. I dont know what the problem is. The kit is so easy to install i know i didnt do it backwards. Any suggesions? It is a belltech kit.

    Post rear shackle kit

    I havent installed rear shackles on new body style, but I know early model belltech shackles were adjustable. I went on belltech website and couldnt find kit for your truck. I know this sounds dump, but are you sure there right year or ever it there belltechs?

    I did this same mod. It doesnt level it perfect but I does bring it closer without sacrificing ride quality. Just put something heavy in the back!

    I threw a bed cover on mine and it did the trick for me.

    thanks! yes it is belltech and it is the right drop for my truck. It is like 8 1/2 inches in the rear and 6 inches in the front from the tire. I guess I am going to have to call belltech on this. If they are going to sell a leveling kit It should level it. I mean it was a 2 1/2 inch drop so the kit should have dropped it at least 4 inches to level it out!!! Thanks for the help i guess ill go with eibach next time.

    Why would a 2.5" drop kit lower your truck 4"? By my calculations that would be a 4" drop kit....
    I have the Ground Force rear leveling kit on my 08 and it worked perfect. 2.5 and its right where I needed it.

    Did you cut the pinch weld under the bed? The kit isnt sitting on that weld, holding it off is it?
