2010 Silverado leveling kit
Hey guys, just recently purchased a new silverado (ill try to get some pictures uploaded soon). I dont know about any of yall, but i cant stand how much lower the front sits than the rear. Ive been looking around at some leveling kits because Im not too interested in lifting it right away. Any suggestions on what a nice reliable kit is? maybe share a few links with me. Thanks guys and so far im digging the forum!

Welcome to the Club and congrats on your ride!!!
I had a Ready Lift 2.25" on my truck for awhile and liked it. It was easy to install and Ready Lift is a high quality product. It's on the more expensive side though but since I off-road a ton I was willing to spend a few extra $$.

I went w/ a ReadyLift kit just for the piece of mind of quality parts and components. The rough country kit is a love/ hate thing on this forum. Many users with that leveling kit swear by it, and others who have used it and switched to another leveling kit say its crap.04 ECSB Custom silver & grey, Soft 8's, BFG KO's, ReadyLift Leveling Kit, Hellwig front sway bar, K&N filter, DeeZee EZ-Down, Rhino liner, Alpine CDE103BT, Rockford 6.5's, 12" V.A.T.

I always think of you get what you pay for. The RCX is a polymer/plastic kit. I just could not see putting a $70 plastic part to lift my 30k truck. You cant go wrong with ReadyLift. The TGZ kit will net you closer to 3" and might have to lift the rear some to level out, but I believe you have to cut the strut bolts (not 100% sure, but hace heard that).

Like the Bilsteins adjustable shock/strut, 0 to 2.5" lift or the ReadyLift. Both good products.
