Okay guys, new member here! First I want to say hello to everyone. I have always owned big vans or small trucks. I moved from larger "recreational" vehicles to smaller trucks because my wife and I do a lot of camping. My most recent vehicle before purchasing this rendezvous is an 04 Ford Ranger Edge. I strongly feel that smaller trucks are more capable of accessing terrain off road than those large/loud "mudding" trucks. I love being in my ranger, putting along a trail, and slowly creeping by a huge truck that is stuck in the mud or can't progress forward because of a narrow pass etc. but i digress. I own a 2003 awd Rendezvous and I'm looking for leveling kit options. This vehicle is a fair enough cross between a grocery getter and a trail/camping vehicle. I got a great deal on it because my wife's uncle knew he would soon lose his fight against a very progressive stage 4 stomach cancer. Basically, Uncle Joe wanted to bless as many people in his passing as he could. I have read a lot of posts and threads on this forum and really think most of you guys seem easy to get along with. However, in my searches, I have only managed to find one post where a guy thought he'd found a leveling kit that was intended for the Aztek but would fit my closely similar Rendezvous. After researching (and even calling the manufacturer) I found that it in fact does not exist. I'm looking for any safe and reliable option for a leveling kit or way to slightly lower my rear end (OR slightly raise my front end) to level out my right hight. And GO!

2003 in Electric Blue

Hey Boontendo, welcome to the AFC! Sorry to be so slow replying, haven't been on in a while and just saw your post. In terms of levelling options, have you looked at something like Max-Air shocks? I put them on my Tek when I got our tent trailer - didn't end up needed them for that, but they were great when I was hauling a bunch of bags of cement. Back end was very low after loading up, so I just grabbed my compressor and had it leveled in a few minutes. Once the cement was out of the Tek, just a simple matter of deflating them back to default.

Hope that helps!

I know this is an old thread but have sent an email to AirLift about their 1000 series rear air spring kit that fits a Montana van and the like. I compared the rear springs to our Teks and the inside diameter as well as the ride height length are the same. The only difference was the uninstalled free length was 1" shorter compared to the Montana. I am waiting on a response to see if they can confirm if the kit will work or not. Dimensionally it should fit, also since out Teks are built off a shortened GMT200 (van chasis) I do not see why it wouldn't work. Hoping AirLift has run into this or  been asked before. Will update when I have some more conversations with them. Or maybe convince them to send me a free kit and be their test dummy  Grin
