Just wanted to get some of your opinions on leveling kits. I think i'm going to go with a leveling kit and maybe a body lift, don't really want to get a suspension lift, I know i'm not going to be offroading with this truck it means to much to me right now to turn it into my friends jeep :p. Anyway!

The place that i'm probably going to get a lift at is telling me they use procomp leveling kits, I hear some people on here use PRG, is their a real big difference in performance or reliability?

Also!, Wanted to ask about Body Lifts, Any suggestions? Any cons?.


I'd rather have a "real persons" opinion before jumping into something like that.

Thanks!

The biggie to Greg at PRG is the service you can count on from him. As far as how they "perform", not really any difference. I'll pay for knowing I can count on service afterwards if need be though. Any of the aluminum billet spacers should perform about the same, but I trusted Greg's reputation for quality as well, and I couldn't be happier.

I'm not a fan of body lifts, but that's just me. Having said that, I can't give advice on those.

First off, forget the ProComp Leveling kit. Both it and the Daystar Level Kits are junk. I'd recommend one from the following: PRG Producs, NCD Customs, or Top Gunz Customs.

Next, just so you are aware, it takes about 24 man hours to install a 3" body lift on these trucks. I've heard that it's a total PITA to install. One of the most difficult of any vehicle in fact.

The leveling kit? No. Just levels the front of the truck. It's a spacer on top of the coil springs. Doesn't affect the suspension at all, although you won't feel like you're going to slide off the front of your seat.

The body lift? Definitely. The bounces may be the same, although accentuated because the center of gravity has elevated and there is more weight further away from the suspension components. So it will rock more, and since the c.g. is higher, it won't corner as well. Body lifts are a lot of work for showboating. And since the bumpers are attached to the frame, they stay at the same level unless you put some aftermarket ones on it, so you don't even get better approach or departure angles with the body lift.

Unless it's just a pavement princess, no reason for a body lift, IMO.....

I HAVE A QUESTION
my 2005 kc4x4 se on18s would look much better if i was to level up the front.
however i have never lifted before and am concerned with abnormal ware to drive line /suspen.and tires. also did not want to affect the ride or handling at least for the worse. my only experience is with a 4x4 atv i lifted and it cost more bearings/u joints/tire ware and bad handling. BUT IT LOOKED GOOD. i want the look with out all that bad. can anyone let me know if any of these problems are true with a titian front level kit?

Get the Leveling Kit from PRG Products for your truck. You won't have any issues with premature wear on the front CV axle shafts or any other items. The kit is probably easier to install than the one you put on your quad.

More coodos for Greg at PRG. I bought and installed my leveling kit about two months ago and its great! Its very easy (if you have the right tools) and it really makes a the truck look great. Greg is a class act and his service speaks for himself. Piece of mind is priceless!

i want to get the PRG leveling kit but i am not sure wich one i should get the 2 or 2.5 and i thought the leveling kit was raising the front of the truck why do they have a prg mini kit the puts blocks in the back to raise the back up more. wouldnt that just make the front sit lower again?

If you have a 2wd, you can get either the 2", or the2.5" kit. If you have a 4wd the you should get the 2". My truck looks level with the 2" kit. Some people just want it higher with a rake, so the mini kit works for them. I prefer the leveled look, so I didn't get the back blocks.

You can go with the 2.5", but I am very happy with the way mine looks with the 2". I don't think there is much difference in the look, but I am not sure. Maybe someone with the 2.5" will chime in with there opinion. BTW go with the PRG kit, never heard anyone one complain about it, and the service is great.

PRG is one of our supporting vendors. If you go into the "Forums" page you can find his web page there.

It does change the suspention, the upper control arm does not have as far to travel after installation. It will hit the coil bucket on hard bumps.....

But I have the top gunz kit and love it

So there is a-arm/coilbucket interference with the PRG 4WD 2" leveling kit?
This is hit and miss... some have the issue some don't. I don't have it on mine. I've got the PRG with the stock coilovers. No bumping. Some have it. :dunno:

Soon, it won't matter.... after this goes on:
