Suburban Leveling Kit

Post by smccollamjr » Mon May 30, 2016 6:08 pm

We bought a 2012 Chevrolet Suburban. The front is about 2" lower than the rear. I've looked at leveling kits and seen some that are metal spacers that go on top the strut and some that go on the bottom of the strut like these: ... 307-8.html

Any opinions as to which is better.

Ive installed this kit on a 2008 Sierra, which is the same platform. It raised it around 2.5" though ... hgodwLUBbA

Edit: i think the kit i installed was only the top spacers, not the lower pieces.

Either one will do the job. The style you show is usually a little easier to install because you don't have to remove the whole strut and deal with the studs on the top.
