Hey guys, just recently purchased a new silverado (ill try to get some pictures uploaded soon). I dont know about any of yall, but i cant stand how much lower the front sits than the rear. Ive been looking around at some leveling kits because Im not too interested in lifting it right away. Any suggestions on what a nice reliable kit is? maybe share a few links with me. Thanks guys and so far im digging the forum!

Welcome to the Club and congrats on your ride!!!

I had a Ready Lift 2.25" on my truck for awhile and liked it. It was easy to install and Ready Lift is a high quality product. It's on the more expensive side though but since I off-road a ton I was willing to spend a few extra $$.

top gun custom make a 2.5" leveling kit for a cheap price and i know rough country got a 2" leveling kit for 70$ i think it is readylift is abit ont he pricey side like fleetwood said but it holds up nice i never heard anyone having any problem with any of the leveling kits for the nnbs but if you go with the topgun your front might sit alittle bit higher then the back.

I went w/ a ReadyLift kit just for the piece of mind of quality parts and components. The rough country kit is a love/ hate thing on this forum. Many users with that leveling kit swear by it, and others who have used it and switched to another leveling kit say its crap.

I always think of you get what you pay for. The RCX is a polymer/plastic kit. I just could not see putting a $70 plastic part to lift my 30k truck. You cant go wrong with ReadyLift. The TGZ kit will net you closer to 3" and might have to lift the rear some to level out, but I believe you have to cut the strut bolts (not 100% sure, but hace heard that).

Like the Bilsteins adjustable shock/strut, 0 to 2.5" lift or the ReadyLift. Both good products.

I have the King Shock Coilover level kit. It is probably the most expensive kit out there. I have had it on for almost a month now and love it. It is rebuildable which is one reason I went with it.

Thanks guys, ive taken a look at just about everything yall talked about. the coilover stuff just isnt in the question at the moment but that readylift sounds pretty good and ive heard nothing but good things about the rough country one. guess ill just have to make a decision and post some pics as soon as i get it done. i read in another thread about taking the lower facia off so i did that today and make a heck of a difference on the "appearance" of the ride height. but hey, every little bit helps! and thanks again for all the input.

I completely agree... A leveling kit is a must for me, too.

Like others have said, ReadyLift is a great way to go! The cost is pretty high in comparison to other kits, though. I went with the CCM Offroad 2.5" leveling kit and I like it just fine. It has a lifetime warranty too (like ReadyLift) which gives me a great piece of mind.
