    Looking to get my 2016 Yukon Denali xl leveled. I currently have a 1.5” suspension maxx kit. The rear still sits about 3/4” higher than the front. What would be the absolute best level without getting Cali lean. ( nose up) ??

    Ps. I will be using the suspension maxx max stacks which provide 1/4” lift per disk.

    This hahahahahha.

    That is exactly what I wanted to do to my wifes denali. But of course, she won the battle and I raised the front instead.

    Btw, I went with the 1.5” max kit as well. And while the back is slightly higher than the front, I wouldnt want the front any higher. Thats when it starts looking goofy IMO. That is exactly why I went with the 1.5” kit.

    I'm interested in the 1.5" kit on the front myself. Easy installation? Any effect on the ride?

    Yea, pretty simple install. Rides just like it always did. Definitely will need an alignment when done though.

    I certainly dont want the front any higher.

    Meh, not really. The passenger shock is now blown, though, but not really sure that had anything to do with the leveling kit. She has 80k miles on it now, so that is longer than some have made it in stock form.

    No doubt, I got 43k on mine right now and all seems good so far. Thanks for the input!

    I wouldn't hesitate to do the same thing again.

    However, now that I need to replace the front shocks, I think I may go with some Fox units and do a magnaride delete. Rather than replace with the OEM units.
