    Are you guys having any problems keeping the front aligned after installing the leveling kits?

    Before this truck I had an '07 Classic Z-71 with keys and everytime I went off road my alignment was off. I have 1.5" spacer on my '08 and I give er hell and still straight and true.

    hey man i noticed you took the front bumper valence off of the bottom of the bumper. does that have anything to do with the airflow to the motor or is it definitely ok to take it off?

    I've had mine on for about 2 years now and haven't had any alignment issues. In fact, I took it to get a front end alignment right after I put it on and it was still within spec without it.

    Silverado469, I removed mine a few months back. I researched on here before I removed it and most memebers reported a 1mpg or less drop with it removed. I added a drop in filter the same week and have not seen a difference in my mpg. As for the air flowing to the motor, when I crawled up under the truck to remove it, I could not see how it could harm it in any way.

    I have an 05 with a pro comp kit, and I am having alignment issues I believe. I was also involved in an accident recently that the front tire was hit, so that probably doesn't help.

    469, taking that off really adds to the looks of the truck. For a less than 5 minute job it adds a lot to the looks. Here is what my before and after looked like.
