The easiest way to add an aggressive stance to your Duramax and allow for larger tire fitment is by adding a leveling kit. Sure, you could merely install replacement torsion keys or even crank the torsion bars, but don't you want to maintain adequate wheel travel and your great ride? If so, you'll want this complete kit from Cognito.
As mentioned, sure, there are a lot of ways to skin a cat when it comes to leveling out your Chevy. However, your front end is an intricate beast that must be dealt with carefully and skillfully to not cause a degradation to ride quality or surrounding suspension components. Fortunately, Cognito knows how to not only keep these important details in check, but also actually increase the strength of your front end.
UPPER CONTROL ARM DETAILS: Made in the USA specifically for leveled and lifted applications where an upgrade is desired to provide better performance, style, and function. The boxed sheet metal arms are CNC robot welded and powder coated semi-gloss black. Cognito alloy series ball joints are included as well as new crush sleeves and polyurethane bushings. Ample droop travel is required for good ride quality and all suspension components to last and work properly. This control arm kit will add performance to the Chevy and GMC truck by correcting the ball joint angle for lifted and leveled applications, increasing droop travel, and also increases caster slightly for better highway speed drivability. NOTE: These control arms are NOT made with provisions for dual shock mounts. If control arms with shock mounts are needed please see alternate sku.

SHOCK MOUNT DETAILS: Adds length of the front shocks for leveling applications where Cognito upper control arms and stock shocks are used. This shock mount bracket kit is used to take advantage of the increased droop travel that Cognito upper control arms provide. Factory hardware is used for install.<.p>
TORSION KEY DETAILS: Torsion bar keys are used to set the ride height of the front of the truck and are commonly used in leveling kits, and it is important to set the height appropriately as to leave ample suspension droop travel to maintain a good ride quality. There are several different torsion bar spring rates that GM made and put in these trucks, the rate depending on the model and features of the truck. Some trucks that have a higher spring rate may not need aftermarket torsion bar adjuster keys to obtain the maximum recommended ride height. This kit is only used in leveling kit applications as well as lifted applications when the higher setting of that particular lift kit range is desired like taking a 4" Cognito lift kit to the 6" setting.
