Overview

Off-Road Action has never been more affordable thanks to Rough Country's new 2.5" Suspension lift for '07 & Up GM 1500 Pickups. If you're looking for something more than a simple leveling kit, look no further! This new design utilizes our popular 2" Lower Strut Extensions combined with a set of strut spacers and rear blocks to achieve a total of 2.5" of lift - enough clearance to run up to a 285/70/17 tire - all at a price that won't break the bank! This kit includes a set of Fabricated 2" Rear Blocks to replace the OEM 1" block. Fabricated blocks offer a longer lifespan than cast blocks and are less susceptible to damage and the environment. Not only is this kit affordable, it's also easy to install, featuring a 100% bolt-on installation procedure with no need for a strut compressor to install. Lift your 1500 easily, efficiently, and cost effectively. Read More

    I just I nstalled this 2.5 leveling kit on my 2015. Looks great and sits level. I only installed the front and if you call RC and speak to the customer service they sell just the front for $100. It doesn't show it on the site but if you are like me and want your truck to sit level then you definitely need a 2.5 in just the front instead of the 2 and stock block in the rear it's worth calling and saving the $50. Oh and I ordered this kit on Thursday and received it Saturday morning. Very fast and I installed it myself in just over an hour with only wrenches. I highly recommend this product and can't wait to show it off. Buy it you won't regret it.

    I had this kit installed on my 2014 Silverado 4x2 to eliminate the factory rake which is up to 3". The truck only needed the front lift to make it level and after a front end alignment it rides and handles as before. I could not be more pleased with how this turned out.

    I installed this kit on my 2011 Ext. cab in the drive way with hand tools a year and a half ago. Took about 3.5 hrs. The rear sits .5 inches higher than the front and looks great. I run 275/70-18 cooper at3's with no rubbing.

    Over all the Lift is great, was not to bad to install. Truck doe's look a lot better. The only thing is that I would change is, I think the Blocks for the rear should be about 1/2" to 1" taller. So that would give you 1 1/2" to 2" lift in the rear, I think the Truck would look even better with that 1/2" to 1" more lift in the rear....

  12. A Must Buy - Posted by: Speezner (5/7/15)

    I purchased my 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT Z71 and I love the truck but the one thing that really bothered me was how low the front end of the truck was. I often bring the truck on trails because I am a hunter and outdoor enthusiast and was worried that I would damage the front end of the truck. I did not want to crank the torsion bars, nor did I want an aggressive huge mudder lift because i park my truck in a 7ft parking garage. I wanted the truck to be more utilitarian.

    I finally gave in and ordered it which came promptly and a few days after installed it and threw some Cooper AT3's 275/70/18 on it. I must say I am very impressed by the kit. After the new tires and the kit i did notice that my MPG went from an average of about 18-19 mpg to around 14 but that is to be expected, especially with the more aggressive tires.

    All in all i believe this kit is a "must buy" if you are taking your truck off of the tar-mac. You wont be disappointed.

    I put the 2.5" lift on my 2013 GMC Sierra.The front went on smooth as molasses. When I went to put on rear, the instructions could be better in letting customers know that the big end of piece faces the rear of the vehicle. The lift was just the right height I was looking for. Other than the rear mounting issues it is a good product. Delivery was fast.

    This kit speaks for itself. It is an inexpensive way to make your truck look great. I love my Chevys but hate the factory rake. This not only eliminates it but lifts the truck a nice noticeable amount. Made my truck look awesome, ride quality is still excellent!! Not to mention the lifetime warranty on their product, and their customer service top notch. I'm running Goodyear wrangler duratracs 265/70/17 on aftermarket rims with a little offset. No rubbing and really does look great. Thank you rough country. Will definitely buy more from them.

    I purchased this kit to go on my 11 Silverado shipping was super fast.I consider myself fairy mechanicly inclined install was harder than expected when I went to put bottom spacer in they were warped it took 4 hands and 3 pry bars to get holes to align once they were in install was per directions.,Moving on to back blocks install was easy except the blocks are tapered nothing in instructions on which way they go in had to do a little research I put taller end to the back.I really wish rough country would put torque values in instructions it would make life easier, all in all nice kit I would buy again

    I put the 2.5 in lift and level on my 2010 z71 Silverado ex cab about a year ago. I did get the lift the truck needed to get the front out the weeds but not level. I'm ok with that. Took me a couple of hours with hand tools to do it in my driveway. I'm runnin 285 70 r 17 hercules terra trac (short 33) with a lil rub on a reverse turn. My next installment is the hidden winch I got awhile back and the 7.5 in lift. Just the 2.5 anit quit big enough yet to do what I want and I want to go anywhere my truck can go. Just runnin out of places.

    Got the 2.5" kit after talking with CS because the 2015 Chevys have about 3" of rake from factory. The kit worked great. I only installed the front for now and I like the look of it. And for any questions that someone might have, the Nitto Trail Grappler M/T 275/70/18 works perfect on the 2015 Silverado Z71 4WD with aluminum arms and stock 18" wheels. No rub and plenty of clearance. Guys at the tire shop were trying to tell me it was going to rub. Rough country proved them wrong! Ha!

    Can't complain for what you get for the kit. Thought the lower strut spacers were made of metal, but they weren't. Some sort of plastic, hope they hold up. Still though, fairly easy to install in a garage with only using a set of jack stand and floor jack. Needed a couple prybars to help with installation. Installed the 2.5" kit including the rear blocks, I now run 285/60r20's without rubbing or modifications.

    Put this kit on my 2014 Silverado 1500 Z-71 and it exceeded all my expectations. Required no cutting to run a size 305/65/18 (33x10) tire with no rubbing at all (positive 18mm offset wheel). Truck is leveled, plus about an inch of total lift all the way around on top of that. Great kit, great value.

    Truck looks awesome with this leveling kit. Took a couple of hours to put on. Well worth the money. If you have a 14 silverado 4x4 no need to spend the extra 90 bucks on this set. Only put the front spacers of the kit on and my truck measured the same on all 4 wheel wells.

    I'm a "do it yourselfer" and found this kit very easy to install on my 2012 GMC Sierra 1500. I'm proud of how it made my truck look. It actually looks like a truck now and don't have to worry about rubbing the spoiler on anything when I go offroad. My favorite part of this kit is that it is made in the USA!

    I just installed the front part of the kit because it was completely level with out adding the rear blocks. The kit was very easy to install, the only issue I have is the strut extensions that are placed on the bottom of the strut are some type of plastic, I hope they hold up comparable to traditional metal spacers. Other than that the kit seems pretty good. I definitely got the stance I was looking for.

    I put this kit on my 2014 Silverado over the weekend, and I could immediately tell a difference in the ride quality. Never would I have thought that leveling my truck would make it ride this much better. I'm currently running 285/65r18 Trail Grapplers on my truck and I'm beyond pleased with the performance of this leveling kit. It's also an added bonus that the truck looks great.

    This is the second vehicle that I have installed this kit on. I purchased my '14 Silverado 1500 brand new and of course it came with the hot rod stance where the butt is high and the front valance touches parking blocks. This kit makes for a nice straight visual line and doesn't affect the handling of the truck. It also makes it easier for my truck to stay level when I pull my 5500lb camper whil eallowing me to run a 275/70-18 without any cutting. Easy to install yourself in about 3 hrs with hand tools (no air tools) then all you need is an alignment at your local shop and you are ready to roll.
