    Default Leveling Kit for '07 Silverado 2WD

    So I saw some other post about leveling kits, but I was looking for something relativly inexpensive.
    I dont think I need more than 2 or 2 1/2 inches. All the cheaper kits I have seen are just blocks. I figured with just 2 inches, you wouldnt need to replace the springs or anything.

    I dont have a heavy duty jack either, so I would probably take my kit to a suspension shop and have them put it on.

    What do you think?
    Know of any cheep kits like i'm looking for or are those TOO cheep?

    Awesome. So I got to looking at the site, and I think I really want to go with the 3inch overall lift.
    I just put 32inch tires on the truck and its only 2wd so I didnt want to go too big, but I do want to give it a little air.

    My one question about the kit is the optional new upper control arms. Should I put out the extra cash for these or not? I'm afraid that if I don't the ride quality will suffer.
    Here is the link to the kit i'm looking at.

    well on the website it says " Kit without new upper control arms requires minor
    trimming to the factory bumpstop."......so with the arms you probably wont have to trim

    Id rather trim the bumpstops than fork out another $220 if I dont have to.

    I'm pretty sure I've heard of bad experiences with that kit when it first came out, I would be weary of it. I would try and find out from people who have had the kit for a while and see if they have made improvements to the kit since the problems people were having.

    Glad to hear some input on the kit. I was a little weary of the 3" riser that goes above the springs. It looked a little "less than" than some other kits I've seen online. I think I'll probably go ahead and scratch this kit and look into another.

    Any suggestions for a kit that will give a little more air than a simple level. Less than 5" is preferable.

    The rancho stuff is a little more than i'm wanting to spend right now.
    I cant seem to find much on the bilstein stuff.
