    I have a 2002 GMC Sierra Extended Cab and want to put a full leveling kit on it. I can do everything myself but want some opinions on brands and stuff. I know rough country's full leveling kit, which is shocks, torsion keys, and 3 inch blocks is popular, but i kinda want to keep the z71 suspension unless the rough country shocks are comfortable. Another brand is made by zone offroad..its 2 inch blocks, torsion keys and shock relocators for the front.

    Give me your opinion!

    Welcome to the club, Lucas. I like the ReadyLift kit, well made. Alot of the cheaper leveling torsn keys are made in China. The ReadyLift keys are forged, good quality.

    X2 on ReadyLift. A little more expensive than most leveling kits but you get what you pay for. The Zone Offroad kit is supposed to be good also.

    My Bilstein levelling shocks are THE answer!

    First, welcome to the site, second, Bilstein leveling shocks won't work for you, they are for the NNBS trucks.
    Here are some links to info on this site concerning leveling a '99-'07 Classic (GMT800) truck

    Do yourself a favor and read all the posts they should help you make a decision.

    idk what to do because rough countrys leveling kit has 3 inch blocks in the rear and zone offroads has 2 inch blocks in the debating over an inch. the only difference between the two is one inch and whether i should go with the rough country shocks or stay with the z71 shocks. I need help!

    Do the 3" block to replace the factory block, and you don't need shocks. I don't know from experience but I can't imagine the Rough Country shocks are that great for the money, your factory shocks are better.

    The stock lift block is 2 in. (I believe) so you'll get another inch of lift in the back if you go with the 3 in. block.

    well rough country only sells their blocks and keys with shocks. Im thinkin im leaning more towards the zone offroad kit, which is 2 inch blocks, torsion keys and front shock relocators.

    All you need is a set of keys and a set of lift blocks and u-bolts. You can buy them separately you don't need to buy a "kit".
