on the level, really!!! Level headed?? HUH?? [Expired Topic]
OK, newbie question here.... Be easy on me...
I have a 92 454 3/4 ton k2500 4wd sub with about 180,000 on it. I love my truck to death EXCEPT for the little rake in the attitude of the front end. I do have a 3" body lift on it and 32's on convo pro rims and it looks sweet EXCEPT for the rake in the front end. I have been ALL over everywhere trying to find a front end leveling kit or SOMETHING to raise the front end about an 1 1/2 to make it level. It just grabs my eye everytime I see it. Like the front end sticking out more than the rear. To fix that I will put duals on w/ fenders. But, I am looking for some solution for my front end. Any ideas?? All suspension has been replaced and improved, bushings, shocks etc. Ok, so , what you got ????

First of all, thanks for stepping up and doing your part in Iraq. Keep safe.
Secondly, I'm not exaclty certain what you're talking about. Do you have a photo of what it looks like and what you want it to look like?

It's understandable that you don't like the rake. A lot of people would rather have a level appearance.
These people have a leveling kit for the suburban
If you don't want to replace the shocks, you can get just the torsion bar cogs from them instead.

I have never done this myself, but I know people who have. You can level the truck by cranking the torsion bars underneath the truck. It is easiest if you put the truck on jackstands to relieve some of the pressure. The Haynes manual doesn't say much about it. Its easy to change it back if you dont like it.
