    Default Got a new truck finally...Question about BDS

    I was thinking about getting the truck lifted but I am going to have to wait a bit for money reasons. I can however afford a level kit I was going to get a BDS lift kit and now I was thinking about getting the BDS level kit, does anyone have that kit and what do you think? I hear a lot of good things about the lift kit i assume the level kit is just as good.

    Thank for the info.

    BDS is one of the best, but a leveling kit is a leveling kit IMO.

    My bad... 2011 Silverado LT Crew Cab 4x4 Z71 in Black.


    I want to level it and because that is way cheaper than the lift I want the best level with the best ride.

    Like I said, a spacer is a spacer. Don't go over 2" and you won't notice much difference. You could also go with some adjustables, but those often stiffen the ride and cost more.

    I started the same way as you, first with a level then moved upto the 5" and then to the 7.5" and then added an add a leaf and body lift. it just keeps going
    Save up for the lift kit to start and then you can do the rims and tires you want the first time
