Advantages to Leveling or Lifting
Whether you choose a leveling kit or a lift kit, there are benefits to modifying your truck. Not only will you add style to your rig, enhance your drivability, and optimize your truck’s performance, you can also protect your vehicle from potential body and undercarriage damage.
A leveling kit can even out your truck’s stance, especially when there is an uneven distribution of weight. For example, if you have a plow or winch on the front of your truck, it could cause the suspension to droop. A leveling kit can bring your truck back up to its proper height.

Lifting vs Leveling – What’s the difference?
Both lifting and leveling allow for increased ground clearance. They also accommodate for larger tires. But with a leveling kit, you are raising the front end of your vehicle to match the stock height of the back end. The average height increase is about 1-2 inches. Leveling kits are simpler than lift kits.
Lift kits can take your vehicle much higher, due to the modification of suspension parts. You can increase the height of your vehicle from two inches up to ten inches, even taller if you choose a custom modification. Depending on the desired height you want, lifting your truck will require new springs, shocks, control arms, and possibly a new driveshaft. Keep in mind, with increased distance between the wheel and the hub and running larger tires may require running aftermarket wheels.
So what is the right choice for you?
If your truck is used for daily driving, some off-roading, and possibly for towing, a leveling kit might be your best bet. If you’re looking for ultimate ground clearance, trudging off-road through mud, water, or snow, or if you’re looking to turn your truck into a head-turning ride, then a lift kit is for you. Whether you choose a leveling or a lift kit, either one will bring style and individualization to your truck!
