    Angry After levelling kit install, rear lower than front

    Hey guys,

    After I had my levelling kit installed I noticed my rear end was a little lower than my front end, people are always asking if I am carrying something heavy. will blocks work in the back? if so how big of a block can I put there before it starts to strain the drive shaft or rear end? Any suggestions?

    Also, after the levelling kit install there has been a clinking noise when going over larger bumps, you can really hear this when it is colder outside (usually around 0).

    I had a similar problem when I installed a 3 inch leveling kit from truxxx. I ended up keeping the 3 inch block in the back that came with the kit from truxxx and I installed an add-a-leaf from skyjacker. It gave me about another inch and a half and now it doesn't sag when I have a load in the back. Plus it gives it a much nicer stance.

    I got the add a leaf on - it was pretty easy to install
