"How are we going to fill the day, and the days ahead? When is this all going to end? What am I going to do?! I’m SO bored!" If these thoughts are racing in your head, it may be time to consider mixing-up the monotony.
It’s Interesting, indeed. After more than a decade (and probably approaching 2 decades) since the advent of modern Leveling Kits, how little things have actually changed. It’s also interesting, that most modern Leveling Kits don’t actually ‘level’ a vehicle at all (aside from maybe torsion suspension vehicles utilizing adjustable keys, levers, pork chops, or whatever else you may call them). How can this be, you ask?
The Toyota Tundra has a reputation: not only is it one of the most reputable & trustworthy light truck products on the market, the Tundra also comes with a glitch that becomes obvious when adjusting your ride height.
In a sea of air-inflatable, over sized bump-stop load support methods to offset seasonal front ride height woes (adding a snow plow to the front end comes to mind…), patented mechanically-adjustable products have now entered the market and made their presence known.
It’s no secret that the advent of leveling kits have made a great impact on today’s aftermarket. Additionally, lift & leveling kits have enjoyed a solid position as some of the most sought-after products to be purchased and installed after a new vehicle (0r new used vehicle) has been acquired.
Can you identify which leveling product in this image is the premium product? Our guess is that you’ll find it quite easy to figure out. While most leveling kits are of a “fixed” nature, meaning, not adjustable to a variety of ride heights, there is one brand that clearly stands out against the rest.
Yep, that’s the scoop. Many pickups and SUVs, especially 1500’s (1/2 tons), suffer the consequences of low front ride height after a snow plow has been introduced to the front end. What’s wrong with that, you ask?
