I'm looking at getting a new truck( new to me not necessarily new) really soon and I have noticed that the chevy's sit lower than a ford or dodge. I really want to buy chevy but don't want to to spend the bucks to make it look taller is there a quick fix in making a chevy sit higher? specifically I found a great deal on a 06 sierra ext cab but the only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger and buying the truck is how low it sits to the ground any info would be appreciated.

you can adjust the front torsion bars to get more height it will ride a little stiffer and you should get it realigned. i have an 07 chevy crewcab duramax and i love it.

on 07 and newer you can buy a leveling kit a National tire and wheel for $69.95. My wife drives an 07 crew cab silverado with the leveling kit and 285s on it. I drive a 09 Sierra with a rough country 3 inch suspension lift that cost me $350 and i also run 285s. 06 and older gms u can just crank the torsion bars up a few turns to level the truck. Just make sure you get it realigned

cranking up torsion bar will make it a bit rougher. also i wouldn't crank them up the whole way, hard on a independent suspension

that was for my 09. It has a coilover suspension design so its a little different than torsion bar. My buddy has an 05 K1500 and a company called sway away makes a different spring rate torsion bar that we installed with ready lift torsion bar keys and a add a leaf in the rear with pro comp shocks. I guess call it a homemade lift from different manufacturers but he has put 80k miles on it with no issues and runs 33 inch tires. A few companies make torsion bar keys that reindex the bar and change the spring rate, therefore mantaining the factory ride.
