Looking for a Leveling Kit to raise the front end of your vehicle to sit level with the rear? You have come to the right place. We offer leveling kits to fit most current model trucks and suvs from top brands like Daystar, Tuff Country, Bilstien and Rancho. These kits come in a variety of styles and sizes (ranging from 1 inch to 3 inches) depending on the vehicle. Most current models will use a coil / strut spacer that is mounted above the factory coil springs to add additional height to the front end. The material used includes polyurethane, steel and aluminum. Replacement torsion bar keys are also a common method to leveling specific models. These keys will lift the front end by re-indexing the factory torsion bars.
With our finger on the pulse of your truck and SUV needs, at suspensionconnection.com we offer only the most reliable and effective kits designed to level your vehicle. From Daystar to Tuff Country the goal is to level the front of your vehicle with the rear, without the hassle of a difficult or problematic installation. The term leveling kit is derived from the fact that most trucks are taller in the rear than in the front so the front suspension allows the truck to sit level. Although the main function is to raise the front end to match the height of the rear, they employ other purposes as well, like allowing extra clearance for larger tires and wheels. Tuff Country and Daystar leveling kits are custom to each vehicle make.
Coil Spring Spacers:
One way of leveling your vehicle is the coil spring spacer leveling kit. Used in many vehicles like the Dodge Ram 1500/2500/3500 and 2wd wheel drive pick ups. By simply inserting coil spring spacers above or below (depending on the application) existing coil springs, you will not only lift the front end of your vehicle, leveling it with the rear but you'll maintain a factory ride without voiding your factory warranty.
Strut spacers have two different styles. One is a pre-load which will need a compressor to install it onto your coil. The other bolts onto the top of your coil which is a much easier way to install onto your vehicle. The struts are used most on Chevy Silverado 1500's, Ford F-150's and also Toyota Tundra's. The installation on the bolt on style is much easier which requires no disassembling.
Torsion Bar Keys:
Another affordable and efficient method is a torsion bar key kit; used in many popular vehicles like the GMC Sierra 2500HD, Ford F150 97-03 and Dodge Ram 1500. These replace your factory keys, providing a lift by resetting your vehicle's torsion bar resulting in a lift. The aftermarket torsion keys we offer are constructed with high quality steel making them more substantial than factory torsion keys to guarantee this is a safe and effective providing long service life, especially under heavy loads.
