Default Front Leveler Kit ? Anyone install one ?

2009 GMC Sierra 1500 4WD --- anyone install or know anyone with a kit ?
Thinking about 2.5" billet spacer on top of coil.
I see now they have a kit including the 1" rear block also.
Is this really necessary ? what are the results ? I measure 3" difference from front to rear above the tires. Any opinions or help appreciated. I hate the front dive down look I have stock. thanks JIM

I've done many of these. Pretty easy. If you put a 2 1/2 spacer over the coil, you're going to most likely gain 4"+ actual because of the geometry. Most spacer lifts are 3/4-1" that will gain approx 2".

Here is what I normally put on with great results.

Thanks for the input, very informative. I am just looking to level and install air bags in rear only for slide in camper. I have seen two other trucks w/ 1" bottom shims only and looks like what I want. Would you happen to have access to these and get me a rough print dimension to make some, (top ring or bottoms) Hole space, U shape size, etc... that would be most appreciated. thanks again.
