Does hell of a job!!
Was totally surprised on how level lift actually lifted front end up 2and a half inches., no more nose in the dirt look!! Have a GMC Sierra SLE extended cab w/8foot bed, truck looks "TUFFER" now along with 275R7517 tires I put on it. Love the new look !! Amazed at just what a 1inch piece of extruded metal could actually do...

Totally pleased!
I work for an automotive repair facility and after much research, ordered this product for a customer's 2012 GMC Sierra Z71. After install, he said that it provided the exact look he was going for. I had mentioned that it could cause the truck to feel a bit firmer but he said that he didn't notice any noticeable difference in the ride.
