    There are a bunch of people on here who have 07 and up trucks and have leveled them out. Any leveling kit will yield you more or less the same results. For me personally, I use ReadyLift and it works great. Some other brands are Zone offroad, Pro comp and Rough Country.

    Readylift probably makes one of the best all around leveling kits but it's also the most expensive.

    http://www.readylift.com/c-122-chevy...6-lug-225.aspx

    At the same point in time, I've yet to find anyone who had a leveling kit by any other manufacturer who was not happy. I have a CCM Offroad Leveling kit and I like it just fine. Especially considering the $150 price difference that left me with extra money for other truck accessories. Leveling kits are a pretty simple idea and like TELORVEHC said, they all pretty much do the same thing. Most of them will also offer a Lifetime Warranty. CCM does (and of course, Readylift does too).

    It's just up to you. Best of luck!

    Hello Black Tie. I just got a 2011 Silverado Z71 4x4 my self. On recommendation from a friend who owns and operates 4Wheel Plus (http://store.4wheelingplus.com/), I bought the Rough Country 3.5" lift/leveling system that comes with the control arms (http://store.4wheelingplus.com/prodd...od=277S&cat=66). At $429, this was a heck of a lot cheaper than the $2600 I was quoted by one of the local franchises for a 4" Rancho lift.

    I also bought wheels & tires. RC recommends max 32" tires with this lift but I'm assured that unless I'm going to do some serious offroading, I should have no problems with the 33" Cooper's I bought. I was a little concerned about that. Actually, that's how I ended up on this forum. I was looking for anyone who had installed this combo already. I found RotaryEnginePete here. His profile states he has the RC 3" lift and 33" tires. I've also seen plenty of posts with 2" or 2.5" leveling kits and 33's so I think I'll be ok

    I'm dropping the truck off tonight and the lift/wheels/tires will all be installed tomorrow. I wish I had the time and space to do it myself but I work too much. Got to pay for the mods somehow. Anyway, I expect to pay another $450 or so for the install so feel pretty good about getting an almost 4" lift for less than a grand installed. Oops, that doesn't include the alignment I'm scheduled for on Tuesday Anyway, I turned around and spent the money I saved on wheels and tires for sure. I can't wait to see these Black Rhino's and Cooper Neon LTZ's on this truck! I'll post pictures when it's done.

    You can see the wheels & tires in my gallery here:

    The ready lift 2.5 inch leveling kit is the best by far and the ride comfort is great easy to install without having to swap things around and the price is good also.
