here is a stock photo from side



two with leveling kit - from side





stock from front



leveling kit front



the second side picture does more justice than the first :Yawn: but you should be able to tell the difference... i looks like it still sits low in the front but the fender flares kinda throw off your perspective of the right height so i measured one day from the ground to the fender then from the top of the wheel to the fender and its only about .35" off. sometimes when i look back at the truck when im out, it almost looks like its sitting back, kinda weird i guess.

As for tires im ordering some from cali, great price! at onlinetires.com. A set of 285/65/18 BFG A/T's and when i get those on ill put more pics up :shhh:

Yeah, I agree that it looks off in certain situations. I have the 2.5" front/1" rear CCM kit, and the rear is 0.25" higher. Atv, check my post regarding level kit pics. I can't find them to post again.

uofm71, how much are the tires (if you don't mind). That is exactly what I was looking for when the stocks wear out. Love the BFGs!

at onlinetires.com i believe they are $1006.46 shipped to my door! then i called local shops to get the best mount and balance price and i found one for $22 a tire

Total about $1100

thats about $300 difference here in price!

the only thing i might be concerned about is warranty or road hazard cause they didnt offer that... so im wondering if i could get that somewhere else i dunno, didnt get any raod hazard on the stockers

Thanks UofmZ71 for those pics. Helped alot. And yes please post more pics once you get your tires on! And isnt it true that with only the 2.5 inch kit the rear of the SUV will sqwat somewhat? Also, what size kit is that? Thanks again!

yeah the rear will squat some if you use a 2.5" on the front and nothing on the rear. i have the CCM 2.5" front and the 1" rear.

i mean if you level it might as well go with this. i have heard no complaints and its a great price! about $140 shipped and i had it installed for about $175. the 1" doesnt really make the price jump that much, but sure as heck makes the truck look that much better!

Alot of people may diagree with me but personlay i like the look of my vehicle sqwatign a small amount in the back. I have seen a z71 around town before with a 2.5 inch leveling kit and it sits up just a little to much in the front for me. I like the way the CCM kit UofmZ71 has looks, but i want mine to sit down in the back just a little bit more. Can you buy just the front 2.5 inch strut spacer for the front without the 1 inch in the back? I would liek to get the CCM in the front because it is a great product, but superlift has a .75" spacer for the rear, which im hoping will give it the look I am looking for. what do you think? Thanks

yeah actually the CCM website only has the 2.5" spacer listed, so i had to call and ask for the 1" rear. But yeah if thats what you like go for it and get the CCM for the front and the superlift one for the rear!

again if thats what you like go for it, its your truck! and when you get it all done i wanna see it! post some pics!

goodluck
