    Default not a typical leveling kit question

    Most kits you can get the 3inch rear blocks. For the people who have used a leveling kit, did you buy the blocks too? And does it make a difference? I have a 99 1500 and the 3 inch blocks would add an inch. Thanks

    Yes the blocks make a difference, I ran mine without blocks for 6 months or so and even though it "measured" level it always looked like it was squatting in the rear, especially since most lots have some sort of grade. Also at take off from a stop light I was told by a friend that it looked even worse, so I put the blocks in and it looks much better. The 3" blocks gave me 1.25" of lift in the rear.

    How much do you have your keys tightened with the blocks in the rear?

    I don't have the adjusters turned in very far, and I still acheived around 3" of lift.

    I'm currently searching all the current threads for info on leveling my burb. It definitely looks like the rear sits a bit lower than the front. It looks like I have several threads I can go through for info about correcting this. How many of you have done the blocks so far?
    I like you.
