Overview

Transforming your truck has never been easier with Rough Country's 1.5" - 2.5" Leveling Suspension kit for 99-06 Chevy / GMC 1500's. Get everything you need to run up to 32" tires and gain the aggressive good-looks of a leveled truck with a taller stance - all in one easy to install package.

A set of high-quality Rough Country Forged Torsion Keys allow fine-tuning of the torsion bar to level the front with the rear. With a 1" adjustable range, these keys can be dialed in to the desired angle; from perfectly level to Cali lean. Our Forged Torsion keys are considerably stronger than cast-iron, offering plenty of strength to keep everything locked and leveled.

Get the wheels you want! Rough Country's 1.5" - 2.5" Leveling Kit comes with everything you need to fit up to a 285/75 R16 tire with factory backspacing. A set of 3" Rear Blocks and shock spacers help provide ample room for a wider range of options than lesser leveling kits can offer.

This kit also ships with front and rear N2.0 Shocks. These shocks are nitrogen charged at 200 PSI to prevent foaming and offer a longer lifespan and incorporate our 10-stage "Velocity Sensitive Valving" technology. This allows for a super smooth highway ride and outstanding control in rugged off road situations from the same shock.

With our 100% Bolt-On Installation processes, this kit is easy enough to install on your own, or can save money on installation at your local shop. Best of all, this GM Leveling kit is backed by Rough Country's Lifetime Replacement Warranty and features our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

    I bought the kit put it on a few days later. Orileys had the gm tool for the keys made it super easy. I didn't have any issues at all with the install. Couldn't be more happy. I fit micky thompson 33x 12.5 17s with no issues at all No cutting very happy.

    The first go around I didn't do the 2 in block in the rear. The rear was about 1 inch lower I have since put it it and it is almost level I'd say the back is slightly higher but looks great.

    I already had a set of 2" lift keys.that I didn't install. When I looked into buying a set of shocks, it just made sense to get the whole lift kit. which came in lot cheaper than buying the shocks and rear lift kit separately. this kit is heavy duty, well made, and I'm looking forward to installing the kit as soon as the weather gets a little better.

    This lift gave my truck an 2 inch lift all the way around in I love how it rides nice and stiff like truck should feel. I wanted the 6 inch but I wanted to use my truck for traveling and doing some mudding and this lift looks great

    No complaints. But a heads up.... if your truck has spent it's entire life in new england and has 210,000 miles; the torsion bars do not slide right out of the stock keys as they say in the directions. But I kind of expected that.

    I fought with the keys and bars for 45 minutes with no luck. I ended up having to drop the "cross member" that holds the keys and bars and completely remove it from the truck. Once the complete assembly was on the garage floor i was able to heat the keys and after 15 minutes of banging on the old keys they finally came out. In my situation there was absolutely no way the old keys were going to come out if I hadn't dropped the entire assembly.

    Everything else was a breeze with zero problems; just a quick run to autozone to get some shock boots.

    My silverado actually looks like a 4x4 truck now and I am very happy with the kit and the price. I'd recomend this kit to anyone with a silverado 1500. There really is a noticeable difference.

    For $200 you can't beat 4 shocks alone. Great price. As far as install it calls for 2.5 hours. That is probably truck with a brand new truck or a clean southern truck. I love in Michigan. Torsion keys had me at 8 hrs. To save someone time, what I did was got the keys loss. Then I heated the key with a torch. Not cherry red as you can head the shaft to much and change the steels properties. I then splashed the key with water. This distorts it. I then took an air hammer and knocked them off. 3 hours on shocks and blocks. Bought 4 dust covers for the shocks. Looks good. Levels the truck nice. Not a high rise but definitly a clean level. Torsion key unloading tool is recommended. I used a c clamp and a puller but was sketchy. I recommend the tool. Hope this helps. Braaap on

    Just installed, haven't got an alignment yet but it looks great. Old shocks were bad so I actually got 4-5 inches in the front. Now all it needs is some tires to finish it off.

    I recommend the Kent Moore torsion bar tool, made the job for a novice fairly easy on the front. Not sure why some of the guys online bring up a ball-joint tool, it is not in any way needed. I first cranked it up to 3 inches on the front but the truck road like a Buckboard wagon so I backed it down to 2.5 and all is good. After some miles I had to put a few more turns on the keeper bolts as the truck settled in a little bit. Overall my 15yr old son and I had a great time installing this kit. We are going to try and squeeze in 35 inch tires. In the words of my boy, "go big or go home". I would give this 5 stars, but I never do based on nothing is perfect. Installed on a 2003 GMC 1500 Sierra 4x4.

    I just put this on my 2005 GMC Sierra Denali AWD, looks great, got about 3" up front and 1" in the back. Ordered the shock covers, everything went on smooth, I would suggest getting the torsion bar tool as the ball joint tool was a bit clumsy for this task. Was able to fit 285/70/17 on stock rims, could have gone a little bigger but rim width wouldn't allow it (at least at my tire shop) Everything looks and rides good (although it is a stiffer ride) debating whether or not to get an alignment since it cruises straight. My only complaint would be the fitment table, it says it won't fit mine, however 4 of the 6 times I chatted with a (different) sales person they said it would fit.

    I ordered this kit for my 2007 classic model Silverado and it came within two days. Me and a few buddies installed it and also put my 285/70/17 Nitto's and everything fit perfectly with stock wheels. I have been running it for almost a year now. I love the look and now my downfall is wanting more lift! Looking at the 4" or 6" NTD lift from RCX. Hopefully here soon! Thanks Rough Country for everything!

    Overall it is a good lift kit! I had some set backs though. Didn't have a ball joint remover so I had to make one and took a long time just to get the torsion bars tight again. So I recommend getting that tool if u don't already or its pretty hard to get them tight again.other than that it was an easy process

    I put this kit on my truck and it quiet a bit and it looks great! The suspension seems a bit stiffer in front though. But still rides great. I would recommend it to anyone. My torsion keys were frozen on pretty well. I took a torch and heated them quiet an bit then let them cool completely and with a little beating they came right off. Hope this helps someone. My only
    Complaint is that the shocks don't have dust covers. Other than that it's a great kit.

    This Kit Made my truck look Great and I couldn't even tell a difference in the way my truck rides! The only complaint I have is that this kit did not include dust covers for the shocks. I had to order them separately. I would definitely recommend this kit but just remember to also order the shock covers.
