    Question Leveling Kit...Which one???

    Yeah okay I am the Newbie here. I have a 2011 Silverado WT with that is in serious need of a leveling kit. Been through Ebay and a couple off road sites and I am not convinced yet on which Leveling kit I want to get. I have a Westin HD grill guard on the truck now and think I might have to go with a 2.5" leveling kit. Which leveling kit would work best? Looking for personnal experience with different kits.

    I used the Ready Lift Leveling Kit. I also had to add 2" to the rear due to the Topper and towing requirements.

    Welcome to the club. As far as leveling kits you will get a few different answers from many people. I have the King Shock level kit on my truck. I love it. Real smooth ride and they look bada$$. Many people have the ready lift kit. If you do a search you will be able to find a few threads about this subject. I hate the "do a search answer" but in this case there is a bunch of info out there on this subject.

    Thank you guys for the response on this. I am trying to go up with the front so I can eventually get the bigger tires under it. I am gonna check out the ready lift kits and see what I can find out. @MACannoy, I have a topper on mine as well and as soon as I can get photo's on here I will show you what it looks like. Thank you again everyone for your directions.

    Check out Tuff Country and Rough Country leveling kits. You don't have to worry about changing shocks or anything. Super affordable.
