The Tuff Country EZ-Ride Suspension 12000 Leveling Kit uses coil spring / strut spacers and will mount them above the factory coil/struts. By not pre-loading on the struts, this kit will maintain the factory ride. Also included are two coil / strut spacers. Requires hardware and will allow for slightly larger tires (31x10.5)
Installing this Tuff Country leveling kit onto your Silverado and/or Sierra will give your truck that “mean” look that Chevy owners are always looking for. On a more technical note, this kit is great for Silverado owners that operate winches/plows. With the 12000 leveling kit installed, your Silverado will maintain it’s factory ride height even when plowing through snow during a blizzard and the strut spacers can be easily removed if you no longer need the additional lift that the the front strut spacers give to your truck.

Q: My 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 tends to rake and point downward towards the front of my truck, probably due to the plow I've installed onto the front end of my truck. How can you help me?
A: By installing a Silverado leveling kit by Tuff Country, the front of your Chevy truck will suffer from that dreadful “nose down” look no longer. Leveling Kit model 12000 is manufactured to offer the highest standard in safety and stability and can be installed without having to cut or drill into the frame of your truck.
Q: How else will this Tuff Country Leveling Kit help my Sierra both on and off the road?
A: Clearance is an always important factor when dealing with any part of your suspension system. There are different methods that trucks and SUVs can follow in order to level and lift your vehicle to that comforting ride height quality. This specific Tuff country leveling kit comes with front strut spacers which are intended to lift vehicles that utilize a coilover spring solution such as the GMC Sierra.
Other leveling options include torsion bar keys as well as coil spacers which offer the same end solution but differ in terms of location on the vehicle.
