    1\" Add-A-Leaf

    I installed the add-a-leaf yesterday and it makes my K5 look so much better!!! Not only does it not look like its taking a squat in the rear, i think it rides as good if not better than when it was not installed. I would STRONGLY recommend this product for anybody with a saggy butt. The only bad part was not having a floor jack.

    Glad it worked out!
    Really, ride quality should not change much, except that you did raise the center of gravity for the truck a little and it may have some pitch and roll characteristics that make it feel better. There is one other possible explanation for a better ride: newpartitis. Sometimes when you put something new on the truck, it just has to ride better!

    A level truck may feel better due to using steering and suspension in their stock or intended positions.....?

    The Vette's suspension is sensitive to a bout 1/4" ride height changes (I believe anyway). I am in the process of changing wheels and tires to identical sizes front and rear so when I change brands of tires (thus ride height differences) I wont need to re-align.
