    Hey Guys Im been thinking of a leveling kit. I was hoping to get some input from some of you that has installed or had one installed. Im wanting just a couple of inches of lift. I would appreciate any input you have.

    These links should help you out. Especially the second one (if I understand what kind of input you're looking for). Also, if you search through the "Suspension Tech" forum, you should be able to find a wealth of information about leveling kits. Try using the search tool for more specific inquiries, too. If you have any other questions or need any other information, please let us know.

    not trying to ruin this for you but id stay away from the torsion key leveling kits. all the really do is hold the stock suspension at an extended point, usually almost bottomed out and it puts a lot of stress on the ball joints

    ChevyNewby, Bilstien make a adjustable front shock/strut for the NBS trucks that doesn't wear out the front suspension parts prematurely. It adjust from from stock up to 2.25".

    This the kind of input I was looking for. I wondered about the stress on parts. I saw the show trucks one sunday and they actually showed lifting a truck with torsion keys for extra clearance. they never said anything about extra wear on parts. Thanks guys.

    I installed my torsion keys over a year ago and couldn't be happier.

    I'll have my BILSTEIN levelling shocks on the front of my truck in 3 weeks.I'm also going to put a 2" readylift block in the back to replace the 1" stock block.I didn't want to screw up the suspension and possibly my warranty by putting the spacers on the springs.My BILSTEINS also carry a lifetime warranty.
