Any Issues with Leveling Kits???

Hey guys,

I've been debating installing a 1.5" leveling kit on my 2013 silverado since the day I got it. However, I've gotten a lot of mixed messages about the pros and cons of a leveling kit.

I was considering a rough country leveling spacer kit, but a buddy of mine told me it's hard on the CV joints and other front end parts. Other people have told me it doesn't have any negative effects.

Now I'm here for the HT veterans to tell me your experience/thoughts on leveling kits. Do you run them? Why or why not?
Your buddy is right. Level kits are good, but a spacer is the wrong way to do it, especially for a truck being taken off road. Spacer only kits are changing the geometry of you upper control arms and you are start wrecking ball joints, risking that joint separating and ultimately that tire basically falling off. I installed a Cognito level kit, with upper control arms, and fox shocks on my 2016 Chevy 2500 HD, 110,000 miles in and no issues. Do it the right way, grease everything once in a while and you wont have anything to worry about.
