    Hey sorry for the stupid question but if I am planning on lifting the body and eventually the suspension in my truck do I still need/want a leveling kit?

    If i were you i would get a suspension and then a body lift to raise it up some. You can buy lift kit's that will level your truck out like i did 7.5 inch in the front and 6.5 inch in the rear. I had to take my leveling kit off because i didn't have room for it and it would have caused allot of front end damage that isn't worth it so i wouldn't put a leveling kit on. I believe a body lift doesn't level your truck out all the way so it want be until you put the suspension lift on when it will be leveled and looking nice.

    A leveling kit is an easy and relatively cheap way to get a few inches of lift in the front end. Most body lifts should work in conjunction with a leveling kit, but suspension lifts usually require you to use the stock torsion keys. If you're absolutely set on installing a suspension lift at some point, I would save your cash and put it towards a quality lift kit.

    I agree with what's been said above. I spent a couple hundred bucks on a leveling kit and then had to take it back off when I purchased my suspension lift a few months later. If you plan on going suspension any time soon, bypass the leveling kit.
