    It's a body lift. It consists of spacers that replace the body mounts, thus lifting the body up from the frame. The suspension is in no way affected, so the ride will remain factory.

    Yep, your ride will be just the same with a body lift.

    A leveling kit replaces the stock torsion keys only and lifts the front end of the vehicle. A body lift replaces the stock body mounts with taller ones to lift the body of the truck taller than the frame.

    The suspension on your vehicle is what supports the frame. A leveling kit, which can be a spacer or torsion keys, adjusts the height of the front suspension, which will in turn raise the entire vehicle from the frame up. The body of the vehicle is mounted on top of the frame with body mounts. All a body lift is, is larger body mounts that will lift the body up, while leaving the frame in it's factory location.
