Default Re: Do I still need to level my truck?

I dont wanna do a key change because it costs quite a bit for the keys and the tool to do it, so i think ill prolly just do a 3" body lift and see if it needs to be leveled after.

BL won't change anything... you are lifting the entire truck 3" off the frame... that means the front and back are being lifted the same amount and it will sit exactly as it does now but 3" higher.

That may be true but it has nothing to do with a BL... a 3" lift all the way around the truck is not going to make it sit more or less level...

dude....a bodylift is just that: lifts the body off the frame. Has NOTHING to do with suspension.

So....in review....if your truck has a rake stock and you put a bodylift on it, it's still got the same rake as before.
