    Hey guys looking to pick up a leveling kit for christmas and am just wondering which ones people have had good experiances with and how hard they are to install im no master mechanic but i can hold my own.So far im considering ethier a daystar or procomp kit that includes new keys and shock extenders and both are priced pretty good right around 130$. If anyone has had any experiance installing these please let me know level of difficulty and how long.
    Thanks, Let it Snow!

    Unless your stock TB bolts are maxxed out you don't need keys. The shock extenders will help with your ride though. Maxxing your stock keys out and putting new keys in are the same difference. You can only go so high before you bottom out the control arm.

    Take your $130 and put it towards a cognito leveling kit. Then you will have the truck leveled the right way Thumbs Up

    They /Cognito/ really have their ***** together when it comes to Chevy products.

    Or you could just buy the shock extenders for $25 and find a set of Ford F150/Expedition keys a lot cheaper.
    That is all they are when you buy the 2" torsion keys under a different name.
