I can’t remember where I read that someone put a spacer under his front shock (Lower control arm) and one on top of his shock. Does anyone know who makes the lower spacer? I can find them all day long for the 1500 Silverado’s but not for the Colorado’s... Thanks in advance

Can't answer your question directly, but coincidentally I was perusing 2021 Colorado diesel specs. Their front shocks offer a 1" lift. This might or might not be a new offering, but you could check your local Chev/GM parts dept. and see if they offer what you want OEM.

Now to thread hijack. Who has raised their diesel front ends 1", and how has it been? Especially interested in those who lifted, and subsequently towed heavy. I know it's available with Bilstein struts, which I might have installed this spring. I am super conservative on mods, but 1" higher in front would be nice. Compromised handling, a harsher ride, more tire wear, not so much...

As LA said, thanks in advance.

I did a AutoSprings level kit on my 2016 diesel with 2.5” spacer in front and 1” block in rear. Also did the front diff drop. I also added larger tires and have been towing my 3400 lb travel trailer. Not super heavy, but handles well with or without the trailer behind it. I don’t have any regrets. Level kit has been on for 18 months.
