While the cost may be higher, the results you will get from a suspension lift are almost undoubtedly worth the extra cost. Suspension lifts involve upgrading everything from the shocks/struts to the control arms, trailing arms and sometimes even the driveshafts and steering components. Replacing these components allows for more suspension articulation, more ground clearance, and an all-around more capable off-road vehicle.
Leveling kits are designed to level the front of your truck with the rear, which allows for slightly larger tires and eliminates the “nose-down” look common in most trucks. A leveling kit is one of the most popular first purchases made by brand new truck owners. A leveling kit involves hardware to slightly raise the front of the vehicle so it matches the stock height in the back. A leveling kit is usually designed to provide a maximum lift of about 2 inches in the front. If a stock-style stance is desired, front-end leveling kits can be paired with spacer blocks on the rear leaf springs to provide a slight lift at all four corners. Leveling kits require only a small modification to the truck, typically requiring spring spacers or torsion keys.
A leveling kit is a low cost way to raise your truck and allow for larger tires, but limits the amount of height you can add to your truck. Although many new truck owners prefer a leveling kit over a lift kit because of the cost and the fact that it only requires a small modification to the truck. Lift kits, on the other hand, allow for up to 10″ added in height to the truck, or more in some cases. Although the cost is higher, and it requires more modification, if you use a quality product and the installation is done by an experienced, knowledgeable technician, you shouldn’t have to worry about negative impact to your truck, jeep, or SUV. We also offer a warranty so that you can be sure that your vehicle is in good hands.
