    Default leveling question

    i put a leveling kit on my truck and now the rear sits visually lower than the front...

    i dont even have the front all the way up....should i get a 1 inch block for the rear or a 2?

    also is there anything anyone recommends specifically?

    Yup. Just get ya a Nascar single pump floor jack and put it under yer rear and jack it till it looks even.

    Seriously I was talking to a friend who had the same problem and he chose shock extenders. Not sure I would but we will see how they hold up.

    Sarge,

    I don't know what kind of truck you have, nor the year?? I checked your profile, and there is no mention of your vehicle?

    So, how can I answer your question?? What kind of leveling kit? Tweak the torsion bars up? Lower the rear?

    If it looks close go with a 1" block.

    Assuming you have a 88-07 1500 you can turn your torsion bars all the way down. If you have a newer 1500 you can wait cause the front might settle a little.

    When I had mine lifted/leveled (05 CC Z71) I removed the factory 2" block and replaced it with a 3" block from Fat Bob's Garage. The extra inch was all mine needed to level it out.


    Here's a link:

    Looks a lot different now though!
