Are you buying a leveling kit or a kit with a new steering knuckle and all that? I call the kit with new keys a leveling kit, and a kit with a new knuckle and associated steering geometry considerations a suspension lift.
At any rate, a lot of those leveling kits come with the option to include new shocks and struts. So if you bought a kit then you could remove the old AutoRide shocks/struts and just install your new ones. That however will cause a code in your instrument cluster. You could pull the fuse for it or disconnect the power to the Autoride computer. I included a link to this guy's video who did just that. There's also aftermarket solutions where you could buy resistors to plug in at each wheel if you plan to sell the vehicle later and want to put it back to stock.
Hope this helps.
