Just thought I'd share if anyone's wondering what a leveling kit looks like on a 2021 Ridgeline with stock rims/rubber.


Also for reference, for installations in Northern California SF Bay Area, these guys did an outstanding job (ask for Paul or Larry). Alignments need to be done elsewhere, but Larry fully understood how to handle the subframe drop, trimming of stock bolts, and getting camber close on the first try (Traxda kit has adjustable camber).

That's a beautiful Radiant Red and with the 1.5 lift it looks awesome!

Did you also do the .5" lift in the rear?

Did not, just wanted to level things out, and now both wheel wells at 33.5", so mission accomplished. Definitely got some more room under the air dam, so helps me do the occasional fire/access dirt road with more confidence, but keeping on-road dynamics the same. On-road, noticed NO driving differences at all (even with my lead foot), and all the lane keeping stuff works fine. Headlights angle, I'm unsure if I'm affecting oncoming drivers, but no flashes directed at me yet.

That's helpful info. Don't want to change the ride/handling geometry, but I really like the look.

May I ask what that cost you? If you don't want to say, no problem....kind of a rude question, LOL.

The kit is running around $200+ online, you can do a search on Traxda 202030.
Installation varies from 3 to 4 hours, so depends on how much going rate per hr is in your area.
4 wheel alignment is commoditized, so pricing was relatively consistent around SF (~$100)

I have my eyes on a skid plate, that's probably the next mod, but really in no hurry for what I do with the Ridgeline.

Any pans for a front skid plate?
