    Default need opinion on leveling kit for 09 gmc 1500

    i am wanting to install a leveling kit. there are two types of kits the spacer rings for the top of the coil springs is one and the other is a spacer that bolts to the bottom of the strut. i am wondering if it is safe or even possible to install both kits at once and get more lift in the front. if anyone knows give me ur input. thanks

    I'm going with a Ready-Lift this coming weekend. I'll have photos in about a week.

    i have a rough country 2" on the bottom and i was wanting to put a 2" on the top also and i talked to a few highly respectable places that put on lift kits and stuff and a few people and they all told me not to do it... they said it would put too much stress on my front end... what size tires are you wanting to fit? Ready Lift makes a 2.25" that says you should fit 33's

    i have this rough country lift

    is a quarter or an inch worth a $200 difference thats up to you... my lift says i should be able to fit 285/70 and i have some 285/70/17's ordered should be on in two days ill post pics and let you know if they rub any
