Change the stance, appearance, and performance of your pickup, all with help from a Sierra 1500 leveling kit. Leveling kits are a type of suspension lift kit that raises the front end of your truck to make it even with the rear end. The GMC Sierra 1500 naturally comes with a higher rear end to accommodate towing and hauling. Some owners think this gives it an odd look. Leveling kits even things out and create a more pleasing appearance, but they also offer some performance benefits in certain situations. To learn more technical details about lift kits and leveling kits in general, see our full Sierra lift kit guide. Otherwise, you can see which leveling kits will work well for your pickup below.

The trick to getting a GMC Sierra 1500 leveling kit that's going to work for your truck properly is to match the kit with your truck's year and the type of pickup you have. Different trucks have different suspension systems, but we offer kits for most models and years of the Sierra 1500. When you select a lift kit or a leveling kit that's matched to your truck, it will install more easily and perform properly. Most of our leveling kits are simple spacers that you install in your truck's suspension system to raise the front end slightly. A 1-inch or 2-inch leveling kit is typically all that's necessary to give your pickup a more natural look without taking away from your truck's ability to tow or haul naturally. It's important to be aware that raising the front end of your truck can reduce its fuel-efficiency slightly, but leveling kits have very little impact on this.
When you get the right leveling kit for your truck you can enjoy the following benefits:
- Clearance for larger tires
- A more natural stance
- Room for a plow or another heavy front-end accessory
- The ability to install more wheels on your truck
A simple leveling kit isn't just for performance improvements, though. Many owners decide to level their Sierra to change its appearance for the better. If you want your truck to have a more balanced appearance, or you just want a bit of extra space for oversized tires and flashy wheels, you can achieve those goals with a leveling kit upgrade. Choose a kit that's going to give your truck the best stance and consider adding on aftermarket wheels and tires as well. Making slight changes to the exterior of your truck can make it stand out in a big way. Make a few simple upgrades to your ride, and you'll be more excited than ever to show it off as you ride around town.

One big benefit of GMC Sierra leveling kits is that they add ground clearance to the front of your truck and sometimes at the rear as well. Whether you decide on one of the 2-inch leveling kits, or you go for something larger such as a 3-inch leveling kit that raises the front and rear of your truck, you'll gain room for larger tires and will have more options to outfit your truck for all-terrain driving. With additional ground clearance, your truck will be able to handle a heavier plow without dragging on the ground. You could also add additional front-end accessories such as a winch for more rugged performance. If you're considering adding a heavy accessory on the front of your truck, such as a plow, consider upgrading to more capable shocks as well to enhance the stability of your ride even more.
No matter what leveling kit you choose for your truck, you'll enjoy the look and the performance gains you get as long as it's matched to your pickup properly. Think about the kit you get, and you'll enjoy the improvements to your ride.
