I think it's the Level 1 but not 100% sure, I do know that I did not want the full drop in the rear so made all 4 corners the same. The Truck gets just as much attention as the Vette, especially with the hood open.

None of the SportTrucks reduce payload with optional Level I Suspension, but with Level II, it's diminished.

Callaway does not change the payload of tow ratings up or down, but my experience is the trucks tow a whole lot easier than base. I Ince towed a 24' enclosed trailer from New York to Illinois - and back. No issues through the mountains.

Good luck with your choices.
Thank you! Is there a way to visually know whether it is equipped w/ the Level I suspension or the Level II?
Level II is a flip of the axle and very low. Most of the SportTrucks were Level I, and then some were lifted by either Callaway, or in conjunction with Rocky Ridge during that time.

Fun seeing one out in the wild. They are few and far between.
