    I just picked up a 2020 Z71 Midnight Edition and want to put a mild lift on. I'm thinking of doing the ReadyLift 2.25" front and 1.5" rear since I still want some rake for when I load the back down. Anyone have any experience with this kit? Are there better options for a simple lift like this? The truck gets weekend trail duty getting us to hiking trails but nothing serious that needs a crazy lift or more articulation. The link for the lift I'm considering is below. Thanks

    All leveling spacer kits are essentially the same with the biggest question being how large you want to go. I would say that 2.5” is as large as you should go.

    Alternatively, a replacement strut or coil-over is the preferred route.

    You should consider getting aftermarket upper control arms to help adjust the upper ball joint geometry when installing your leveling kit.

    I have a 3.5” leveling kit with 2” in the rear and it rides great. I have a midnight edition LS and the wheels look great.
