Description

Like most full-size trucks, the Chevy Silverado 1500 model has a lower front end than the rear end. This is a look that many buyers do not enjoy and would prefer a level stance. This is where the Tuff Country EZ-Ride leveling kit comes in. This simple to install leveling kit will just raise to front of the Silverado 1500 2 inches. This is done by installing the included spacers above the factory strut / coils. No need to replace struts or shocks.

Why Buy a Leveling Kit ?
Besides leveling your trucks front end with the rear, by gaining the additional tire clearance you are able to fit a large tire under the Silverado. With larger tires you get a more aggresive look along with more ground clearance (which can come in handy when you leave the pavement).

Quality and Build
The Tuff Country #12000 leveling kit is made in the USA and uses the finest high grade aluminum. This will never wear out, unlike other materials that are used by other manufactures. All required hardware is included. Tuff Country was the originator of the truck leveling kit. With over 25 years experience they know how to lift about anything.

With over 25 years of experience Tuff Country is a market leader in lifting and leveling trucks. All products are backed by their rock solid lifetime warranty against any defects or failure. image

Customer Questions & Answers

We will respond with an answer ASAP.

Question:
I have 275/55r 20 tires. With a 2" leveling kit how much bigger tires can I use
Answer:
Great question. The largest size tire that will fit with this kit is a 32 x 10.50. The conversion for the 275/55r 20 is 31.9 x 10.8. This would be the biggest metric size tire that you can fit with this kit
Question:
Hi there... I own a 2014 Silverado lt regular cab longbox 2wd...I'm basically a weekend warrior..I don't go off-road..I just use my truck for hauling my dirtbike and dump runs which it does well. Only thing I don't like is the rubbing of the plastic underneath the bumper when parking around curbs downtown..so maybe a few inches would be useful. However please answer these questions for me first: Will the kit change the ride quality? I'm sticking with 17" tires not going bigger... Will kit mess up front suspension or void gm warranty? Will it cause a loss in fuel economy? Can I install it myself? Is it hard to do? Ty for information..
Answer:
Your factory ride is maintained with this kit. Going up 2" will not mess up or change the geometry of the front suspension. Tuff Country sells a lot of these directly to Chevy and GMC dealerships, they install these all of the time so your warranty should not be affected. You will not lose any fuel economy and yes you can install this yourself. This kit doesn't require spring compression required or strut dissassembly.
Question:
Hi: I own a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 4x4 extended cab long box. I have 265/60R/17s on there now. I bought rims and tires the tires are 275/60R/20 for my truck. I want to buy a levelling kit for the front of my truck. Will a levelling kit work or do I need a lift kit for this truck. Thank you
Answer:
A leveling kit like this Tuff Country part # 12000 will work for the tire and wheel combo you are looking at.

Much better
My silverado looks so much better with the front end level with the rear. Wish I would have do this sooner. Ride did not change. Was a little concerned when I opened the box thou. The spacers are only about an inch tall, but when I put them on it did lift the truck two inches. Very nice look.

Great kit...
Kit arrived a day early. Had it installed at a friends shop and he said it was a lot easier to install compared to other brands. Was able to get 33x11s on it and could have gone to 35s without any rubbing issues on a 2009 Silverado 4x4...

Excellent and easy install
Kit was easy to install. Description of kit stated no drilling or cutting and the first thing you have to do after removing the struts is cut the factory studs on the struts down to 7/8". Not a problem just was not expecting that at the time I ordered the kit. Was able to install the kit in just over 3 hours and I am not a mechanic. Instructions are clear and easy to understand. I would and have recomended this kit to friends.

This is the way a truck should look when you buy it ! It levels the front to the rear and allows for the appropriate size tires ... Which in my case are 285's . A perfect Chevy now !
