Hi Scotty,

I see many truck owners installing leveling kits . Mostly I see people using 2 - 3 inch steel or aluminum spacers on top of shocks and coil. What is you opinion on leveling kits.

I know some install them to put bigger tires and end up with rubbing issues and having to modify tire wall.

Just want to know your opinion on leveling kits with everything else stock?

trucks are designed to work best with their original engineer designed geometry. You change it up, you mess with engineering negatively.

Scotty is right. It's merely for look. If you are using same tire, the axle is still at the same height clearance. It only lift the up above the frame. I've done (2) Toyota Tundra 3" level lift. I love them for their height. Just seem right for my style driving habit. Any higher then it get more complex and problem. One thing to note. Most level kits don't come with upper control arm that adjusted for increase height. Without it you'll have outside shoulder wear. Reason they don't include in kit is costs. At least $400+ Scotty gave his opinion and effect on video.
