I recently bought an 06 duramax completely stock. I bought a readylift leveling kit for it and it still doesn't sit level. The keys are fully cranked as well. What do I have to do to make it sit perfectly level?
Here's a picture of it the day I bought it.


And how it sits now.

Looks pretty level to me...but in the first pic it looks like you have an extra helper spring, or possibly a small block. The rear definitely looks higher than some others. Buy a real suspension if you wanna be level with a good ride!

I don't want to lift it, not because I'm cheap but because I like the leveling kit height. Yeah I was thinking about that that there might be an extra block in the back.

If there is a block in the rear, take it out and then you will be level. Might have to lower front down a bit as well

What size tire? How's your cv angles? I could only imagine it's a bumpy ride in there.

They're 33" duratracs. Idk about the cv angles though cause Idk what they're supposed to look like lol. The ride actually isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I'm sorry I'm still new to the duramax but when you say tbolts do you mean torsion keys?

Yeah. New keys just allow more lift when you screw in the bolts but you still gotta screw them in all the way if you want the desired lift. Theyre made to be adjustable.

Theyre obviosly gonna be bad angles its a stock front end with leveling keys you dont expect thrm to be flat. Unless you do a drop lift any 2-3" level will have bad angles.

Yeah keys are cranked. Thanks for the pics I'll have to look tomorrow to see how my angles look. Would cognito Ucas help level at all?

They will not fix cv angles... but they will fix the upper control arm angle which will give you a better ride. They are well worth the money.,, I've had 3 sets!
