I ran a Suspension Max leveling kit on 15 and 16 Chevys. Took off when I traded. I ran longer Bilsteins on mine. Shocks have 30k on them. I will sell the whole deal for $400. Will bring the Lake next week.

Is there a kit to lower these trucks?

purchased the rough country leveling torsion keys, installed the front shock spacers that came with the kit. 20” Helo 901 satin black wheels and LT285 Toyo open country RT tires. Still using the factory rough country shocks that came on the truck when purchased new. The truck is a 2019 1 ton Denali with duramax diesel.

Any change to the ride quality?

honestly....a hair stiffer in the front end but very minimal. I am truly amazed that this alteration didn’t make the truck ride like S***. It certainly has a great look...very pleased

If you have the Magnetic ride control, make sure you adjust the sensor arms so they are in the stock position or it will make the ride really stiff. I put the strut spacer on my Yukon Denali to level it with the new tires and before I did anything to the suspension control sensor the ride was terrible. I had to make a custom piece to get the arm back to the original at rest position. I have the magnetic ride control and the sensors are very sensitive. I had to mark the sensor position with the stock suspension and make a bracket that matched that with the leveling kit.
