Description

This simple to install leveling kit for the Chevy Silverado 1500 will raise the front end 2 inches. This is done by installing the included spacers above the factory strut / coils. No need to replace struts or shocks, no strut disassembly required. With the additional fender clearance you are able to fit a larger tire. With larger tires you get a more aggresive look along with more ground clearance (which can come in handy when you leave the pavement). Made in the USA of high grade billet aluminum. Backed by a lifetime warranty.

Features and Benefits

  • No Drilling Required, Simple bolt-on installation
  • Keeps your stock ride
  • Levels the front of your truck with the rear
  • New struts or shocks are not required or needed
  • Will allow for use of 32 X 10.50 tires
  • Finest High Grade Billet Aluminum
  • No spring compression required or strut dissassembly
  • Proudly Made in the USA - (many other brands are not)
  • Backed by the Tuff Country Lifetime Warranty

Installation Notes

1. New extended shocks are not required to install this leveling kit properly.
2. Designed for Chevy Silverado models with front struts only.  Vehicles with torsion bars please see part # 12903.
3. If upgrading to a larger tire (32 X 10.50) with aftermarket rims a positive 30 offset is required. If lower than a positive 30 offset wheel is use, trimming is required. If kit is used with factory rims, no trimming will be required.
4. Will not fit 2007 Classic models with front torsion bars.
5. Excludes vehicles equipped with Magnetic Ride Control
6. Due to inconsistent factory coil spring heights, variations in end ride height results may vary

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.

Great Improvement!
The kit went in easily and improved the looks of the truck! Would be nice if the manufacturers would make them level to start with but they want that angle to give an extra mile or so per gallon to advertise.

Just what my truck needed.
The install will be fairly easy . Basic tools are all you need although a cutting disk on a grinder will make the job easier.

level's the truck
I wanted my truck to sit level instead of the factory lean so I purchased this product. I can not tell you how easy the part was to install since I had it done by my favorite local mechanic as part of a front end deal where I needed an alignment and tires. if you decide to go with this product make sure you ge your truck aligned after installaton or you'll be buying a set of tires. The truck looks much better now just a subtle difference not a radical lift.

The way a truck should look !
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 !
