    Just went over this with a guy who sells both, says the leveling kit will keep the smooth ride with more height than the timbrens. Just curious to everyone's opinion. Going on my 07 classic 1500 ext cab.

    I would go for the leveling kit. Check out bilstein leveling kits. You might want to add the differential drop too. The dif drop is only like $30. The leveling kit will give you a smoother ride while the timbrens just make you bottom out sooner. The bilstein kit is an adjustable height kit, it goes from stock height to 2.5 inches of lift, I would set it on the highest one and get that 2.5'' of lift. Let us know how ya make out.

    I have the timbrens on my 2003 Silverado Z71 ext cab, the front timbrens set on the axle all the time which makes for a stiffer ride. The timbrens for your truck may not, but if I was to do over again and had money to throw out the door, I would try lift kit or airbags on the front.....
