    Default 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 $$.

    top gun custom make a 2.5" leveling kit for a cheap price and i know rough country got a 2" leveling kit for 70$ i think it is readylift is abit ont he pricey side like fleetwood said but it holds up nice i never heard anyone having any problem with any of the leveling kits for the nnbs but if you go with the topgun your front might sit alittle bit higher then the back.

    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.

    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).

    i have the RC kit and it works just fine, very easy to install, i think the strut boltswould snap before the spacer

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