Ford F-150 Lift Kits vs. F-150 Leveling Kits

2021 Ford F-150 Towing a Trailer

With the proper lift or leveling kit, you can elevate your Ford F-150’s ride height, handling, and capabilities. Whether you want greater off-roading prowess or larger wheels for your Wichita drives, there’s a kit for your new Ford F-150. Compare Ford F-150 lift kits and leveling kits below with the team at Don Hattan Dealerships to see which offers more of what you want for the right price. 


Ride Quality & Ground Clearance 

Lift and leveling kits give trucks greater ground clearance and make room so you can outfit your F-150 with larger tires. To do this, you’ll raise your truck’s body further from the axles. There are some noteworthy differences between the two kits in terms of how they’ll affect the F-150’s 3.5L EcoBoost performance and utility on Andover roads: 

  • Ford F-150 Leveling Kit: You can simply lift the front of your F-150 by about 1.5 to 2.5 inches with a front leveling kit. Stock-style stances can be achieved by placing a rear lift block on the rear leaf springs for a small height increase at all four wheels. From there, you can install slightly larger tires—about 33 inches in diameter. Ford F-150 leveling kits are best for daily driving, towing, and light off-roading around Maize
  • Ford F-150 Lift Kit: A Ford F-150 lift kit will raise your truck’s ground clearance at all four points by 3 to 12 inches, allowing for 35+-inch tires. If off-roading around Wichita is one of your favorite pastimes, this is the right choice for you. Ford F-150 lift kits are best for mud, sand, snow, and heavy-duty off-roading. 

Price & Installation

It is important to note that leveling kits are less expensive than lift kits. Typically, the cost ranges from $100 to $250. If you’re lifting your Ford F-150 truck, you can expect the cost to be around $1,000 to $4,000, depending on the ride quality and height you want. Professional installation is recommended if you’re using a lift or block kit, as well as an alignment after. Ford F-150 leveling kits are easy to install, and usually require hand tools.
