What is a leveling kit?
A leveling kit is an aftermarket automotive part used to level the stance of a vehicle by raising the front end of a truck or SUV. It uses spacers or coil spring spacers to raise the front of the vehicle, allowing it to accommodate larger tires and create a level stance.
What is the purpose of a leveling kit?
The primary purpose of a leveling kit is to improve the overall look of the vehicle by creating a level stance. It can also be used to improve the handling and performance of the vehicle by allowing for larger tires, as well as improve ground clearance for off-road driving.
How can I tell if my leveling kit is faulty?
If your vehicle's stance is not level, or if you notice any unevenness in the ride or handling, it is possible that the leveling kit is faulty. You should also inspect the leveling kit for any signs of wear or damage, such as cracks or corrosion.
Can a faulty leveling kit cause damage to my vehicle?
