Default LLY Level

Hey guys, I'm looking to level my LLY with keys and Bil 5100's. Would that be enough to clear some BMF Nova's (0 offset) and 305/70's?? Thanks for any info

My truck has 20x9 +22 offset and keys. Without having them cranked to level I fit 33x12.50 pretty easily, and could fit 35s pretty easily if I did it fully level. You’ll have to trim the bottom valence and possibly heat the inner fender at the wiper reservoir and bend it back some. I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t have to take a little bit off the bumper and do a NorCal mod.

Assuming you’re wanting an 18” wheel, 305/70 are almost 35s. Anything can be done with a little trimming though

Like Sean said, with just keys ride will be junk unless you get aftermarket UCAs. You’ll be blowing through ball joints and steering components too. Keys came in my truck and I hate them

Ok thanks guys. I was thinking without getting UCAs it might be too bad to ride in.

You can get a 4” super lift kit for $900 right now that’ll ride like stock

Edit, don’t know why I thought superlift, meant tuff country

A 4 inch lift with flat cv and steering angles will get you about an inch above leveling. Be careful with rough country and Zone kits. They push the front tires out 1 5/8 per side. Tuff country may do the same.

Edit again, sorry guys, according to suspension connection, the tuff country kit does not widen stance. A bit confusing, as it includes new knuckles but is a full drop kit. Although I’m not very well versed in IFS lifts and this could be normal

haven't gotten anything yet. haha I've got about $4200 left of truck money, and I'm going to ride it for a little bit to see if anything goes wrong with it. I bought it 220k miles and nothing major has gone wrong (knock on wood), so I'm just holding on to the money to get more miles on it to see if anything craps out on me

A $40 set of drop shackles is a far better option. That levels out the truck and you keep the factory ride and steering angles.
