front end leveling kit...

I work with a gent that says if I put a frontend leveling kit on my truck that I will lose @1-2 mpg.
he owns a dodge but it has 4:11 gears and when he bought it he took it right to Les Schwaub And had a lift and larger wheels and tires put on.


Id like t know If this is true before I have it done to my truck.
I understand it will effect the aerodynamics of it but will it cost me that in fuel milage???

He is wrong. You will not see any mileage change for better or worse if you are simply leveling the truck.

I have a leveling kit on my dodge, and I get the same mpg as I did without it. If you put bigger heavier wheels and tires that could effect.

yea i would say that he's going by his own truck which is completely different from yours, you will not see any change.

Thanks for the help, I kinda figured he was a bit upside down on that one.
