    On my 2004 2-wheel drive, how would a leveling kit and P265-70R16 tires look?
    Do you guys think there would be too much of a gap, or it would look alright?

    And can you guys point me in the way of a decent leveling kit? I'm assuming I need new spindles to achieve this.. true?

    the kit for you body style just requires torsion keys, if i was you i would go with a 285/75r16 which is about a 32.8 inch tire

    I don't believe I have torsion bars.. I know for sure I've got coils, and I don't think torsion bars and coils mix..?

    I have 265/65R16 tires on my truck and there's plenty of room to fit a 285 tire or slightly bigger in the wheel well, so you could go bigger if you want. Also, check out the "official lift/ leveling kit" thread at the top of the page in the Suspension Tech forum, that should give you all the info you need.

    '04 was a mixed year for GM 2wd. pick-ups. The early '04's had front coil springs and later in that year they went to torson bars on the 2wd's. Since you have coils, I would go with CST or Fabtech lifted steering knuckles.
