    Default Leveling Kit

    I have a 2009 Silverado and was wondering if anyone has pictures of their truck with a 2 1/2" leveling kit installed and with the STOCK tires. Every picture I have seen they have installed bigger tires, I just want the truck to set level with the same tires.

    Ok, I'll admit I haven't done a search yet, but what is with the leveling kits? My 08 has the factory 20's and appears to sit level. Am I missing something here?

    My

    2009 LT 1 Texas Edition sits lower in the front as you can tell by the picture.

    Chevy is famous or infamous, depending how you look at it, for the front end of their trucks sitting lower than the rear end. Just the way the trucks are designed.

    Because typically most chevys are used for hauling and pulling. That's why there's also a stabilizer in the rear end, and you get smoother driving 45+ when there's nothing in the back of your truck. It's built to drive smoother with more weight in the back. If you don't have 250 lbs+ in the bed of your truck, you'll have a noticeable difference in handling 45 mph or lower without the stabilizer. Most chevy dealers will install them for free if you don't have one.

    Thanks guys! As soon as the lightning quits popping, I'll put a level on my truck to confirm what my eyes are telling me.

    Jpulling, can you tell me more about the stabilizer? I work for a GM dealer (GMC) and have never heard of this?
