Looking for a front end leveling kit

Hello,

I'm looking for a company who makes a front end leveling kit for a 2001 Chevy Tahoe 4x4 5.3L. I already cranked the torsion bars as far as they would go and it still didn't level it out all the way. I want to put it back to stock and level it properly with a kit. Can anyone give me any information on companies that make these kits? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Thanks,

MT ZION

Re: Looking for a front end leveling kit

Here's one I ran across:

http://www.suspensionmaxx.com/vtahoe.htm

Not an endorsement, haven't tried it or anything, but it might be what you're looking for.

Otherwise, are the Tahoe t-bars re-indexable? On my previous vehicle (Trooper) you could uncrank the bars all the way, pull the adjustment/tensioning arm off the t-bar, rotate it a few splines on the t-bar and reinstall...it gave the arm more room to swing and hence more adjustability. But I don't know if the Tahoe is setup the same way...

Re: Looking for a front end leveling kit

there's no such thing as a leveling kit. but if you want, go for those raunchy tbar keys. and you cranked your tbars and it still didn't level out your truck??? that's odd. you got any lift in the rear?

Re: Looking for a front end leveling kit

Well, I was going to mention that ALL torsion bars sag after a bit, especially if you crank them up, but according the site mentioned earlier it seems that there is limited adjustment especially in the Tahoes.

So I WAS going to suggest new bars (or heavier-duty ones if available), but it seems that this might work too...

If you're going for this type of lift, FSC Offroad forum has a post that walks you through the replacement of the keys and from there you could replace the torsion bars with higher rated ones. I definitely don't recommend this type of lift but it's up to you. The post also includes part numbers which you could use at a junk yard to save you some bucks. I have read Ford keys can be found for around $50/pair. Here's the link to the post.
