There are several reasons that a truck can have that “nose-down” attitude. The engine is heavier than an empty bed, and truck rear suspension is generally set up to carry a load without dragging the tail, so the truck will naturally sit higher in the rear when empty. The weight of aftermarket accessories like a winch, off-road bumper, or grille guard can also cause the front end to droop. Whatever the reason, the stance can be improved with a leveling kit.

Now, personal taste is subjective, and some folks like the look of a raked truck. But the popularity of leveling kits shows that many truck owners want a level stance. Most trucks have plenty of room between the rear tire and fender, and having the same gap in the front can make the truck look like it’s been lifted all around, with the attendant imposing, aggressive appearance. And you can get this look for much less cash and effort than a four wheel lift.

Along with improved appearance, a leveling kit will also allow you to install larger tires on your truck. Most trucks can easily handle sizeable rubber in the rear, but the front can present problems. Front tires have to turn, and if the front end is low, larger than OE tires can easily rub the fenders. If all you want to do is run bigger meats why spend the money for a four-wheel lift kit if you know you already have plenty of room out back? A leveling kit is the economical way to raise the front end and give you the tire clearance you need.

The makeup of a leveling kit will vary according to suspension design. Many late model trucks have struts in front and the front end can be raised on these trucks using spacers at the top of the strut or extensions at the bottom. If you want to replace the shock portion of the strut, some can allow the position of the lower coil spring seat to be adjusted so you can get the exact degree of front end lift that you want. For torsion bar suspensions we offer torsion bar keys that reindex the factory torsion bars so you can lift the front without the harsh ride that comes from just cranking up the bars with the OE keys.

Leveling earlier models may require installing taller coil springs or adding a leaf pack and longer U-bolts to the front leaf springs. Punch in your truck’s year, make, and model into the drop down boxes on this page and you’ll find the details for your truck in the individual product descriptions. The most important thing we want to convey here is that each leveling kit we offer has been engineered for the specific vehicle by manufacturers who specialize in performance truck suspensions. You’ll get the front end height you want for level stance and tire clearance, while maintaining factory ride quality.

    Has this happened to you? You catch a glimpse of a truck like yours in a parking lot or around town that, for some reason, you like better than your own. It seems to have a stance that's more rugged-looking and more suited to a 4x4 than yours does. Maybe you get a chance to stop and take a closer look immediately, or maybe it's days or weeks before you see the other truck again.

    Very often we don't even realize what a crucial role a car's suspension plays in providing a safe and comfortable ride. The system maximizes the friction between the road surface and your vehicle's tires, ensuring steering stability along with responsive handling.
  • Performance Parts
    The very first thing to know about timely suspension system diagnosis is that the stability and steering control of your vehicle and, what is more important, your safety on the road depends on how often you make it. Automotive suspension belongs to one of those car systems that are constantly exposed to high loads and thus are prone to wear and tear. Most specialists recommend inspecting suspension system after every 6,500-7,500 miles or when there are any signs of its breakage.

    Lowering is high on the list of many people who want to improve the appearance of their car. If you want to lower your car with the coil springs, then replacing them with lowering springs is the way to go. But what if you want to lower your car and also make it handle better? If that’s your goal then consider coil-over shocks.

2003 Cadillac Escalade / Posted by Phillip (Homestead, FL) /

I was surprised that what I actually received were aluminum spacers and not the polyurethane ones as described. How ever they work just as good were easy to install and make my ride a lot smoother.
