Hey guys, there seems to be many options on how to level our trucks. How did you level your truck and what company did you go with. Some people tell me you cannot just at the strut spacers. If I can and reading throughout the posts I can fit 295 70r18 without having to level.

I got slight rubbing at full lock with stock and 295/70R18 Cooper AT3s. Installed the Rough Country 1.5" spacer solved that. (My upper control arms are fine with the 1.5" spacer but it is definitely maxed out).

I have 295/70R18 Nitto Ridge Grapplers on stock rims with 1.25" hub-centric wheel spacers, this setup rubbed at full lock on front mud flaps, trimmed front flaps, was better but still rubbing on wheel well liner, added Supreme Suspensions 1" lower strut spacer, sits dead even now front to back and no more rubbing, minimal change to control arm/ball joint angle. I may have been able to avoid the rubbing by removing the wheel spacer, but I do like the wider & leveled stance

@Brando. Do you think 295,70s would fit without rubbing. Some TB members have said they can run 295 without making any changes. I’m trying to avoiding making to many changes.

I can't say for certain because I never ran the 295's w/out the spacers, but 295/70s on stock wheels with no spacers should not rub or at least have very minimal rubbing, I'm pretty sure there are guys on here that would confirm that with their setup

Thanks. I guess in the next couple weeks I’ll get a chance to try it.
By the way both you guys have great looking trucks.

Lots of bad information out there on TB front end leveling. It's all over the net that you must change your control arms even if you are just going 1.5 or 2 inches to level it. Not true. I had a local off road shop quote me over 1,400.00 bucks to instal that kind of kit. Ironically I found my answer at my dealership. They have a factory approved, aftermarket spacer kit for just north of $500.00 installed including the required front end alignment. Perfect for my needs. YMMV.

My reciept says front level kit and alignment. That's about it. My dealer is Courtesy Chevrolet in Phoenix AZ. The guys in the "Pro Shop" there have taken good care of me.

I do like the ready lift kit. I’m trying not spend to much. If I can get these to fit without that would be great. Maybe in a few months I can do the lift.

I like the look of the 295 70 18. Much better at closing the giant gaps in the wheel wells.
