    Default 2" Leveling kit.

    Whats up guys still messing around with my 2011 1500 but decided not to do much. My question is what is your take on the 2" leveling kit for a GMT 900 model truck? You think it will do a lot of harm to my ball joints and tie rods? If so let me know I got a cat back too but that will be harmless. Its a Daystar non strut dis assembly Polyurethane and here is the link. Just want the take because the dealership is pretty anal about everything else I asked about.

    Think there is really much difference? I mean I dont care about the exhaust they said that was fine but the leveling kit they said was my choice? I guess I just want to know if it will put more harm on the ball joints and tire rod ends?

    i highly doubt it, i havent seen a rise in people needing to replace the ball joints and tierod ends. the majority of the users here have leveling kits

    A leveling kit will have minimal if any negative effect on wear and tear of front end suspension components and ride quality.

    Definatly a big thing on the forums is leveling kits. Got mine leveled off 2 weeks after buying the truck. Normal wear and tear as stock. Had mine on for 40,000 miles now and nothing, but a better stance for the truck.
