    Yeah, get a six inch lift. As soon as you get the 4 you will wish you would have gotten the six.

    It is a Tuff Country kit, which is on the cheaper side, but not bad. Most leveling kits like this are pretty much the same anyway. The shocks will most likely suck if you get the Tuff Country ones. If you want abetter ride I highly recommend going with the Bilstein ones they offer. They will last longer and give you a better ride.

    Funny I should see this. I just put the RoughCountry leveling kit on my 2010 Silverado 3 days ago. Quality is fine. Everything went very smoothly, but lining up the shock/spacer block/lower control arm is time consuming and frustrating. That took longer than anything else. Just be patient and it will come. The front drive shaft prevents you from putting the one bolt through from the top, but put it in from the bottom, and it's all good. The steering arm nut is a little difficult to reinstall, because the bolt turns. You have to put a 15mm wrench on the BOTTOM of the bolt to keep it from turning. You can use air tools on the left front top strut bolts, but have to use a wrench on the right side. You can't get to the bolts from above. I also installed HID lights in my high beams. I'll update the picture soon. Contact me directly if you have any other questions. khargarten at hot mail dot com.

    I love my Rough Country 3" suspension lift! It took a weekend to put on (with new upper A-arms), I fit 33" tires under it and its the perfect balance between the performance you want from a lifted truck and stock handling. In fact with my offset wheels I can take corners a little faster than stock...definitely worth every penny of $450.

    Ok so I have a 2007 silverado Z71 4X4 and I was wondering how high it can be lifted before things like brake lines and all that has to start being replaced.

    I'm not sure how a torsion bar key works. Can someone explain how they work, and how they will raise my truck up? Also, will a leveling kit actually raise up the front of my truck a couple of inches, or will it raise it just a fraction of an inch? Asking this because I have 2 inches blocks to put in the rear, and my truck sits level already and I want to make sure it will truly raise up the front of the truck.
