Isn't 08 the first year to use the lower keys? So he could also get some t-keys out of an older ranger for another 1-2" correct?

If he got OEM keys from a ranger 2006 and older he could get more lift then he could now. He can get the amount of lift he is seeking with the ones he has.

www.car-part.com search all salvage yards in your state. That would be the cheapest route. Ford I believe they are $50+ a piece.

searching that website look up torsion bar. You would then have to call them and tell them what you need. If they have a torsion bar they will also have the key.

----------

Looked on ford parts site and they are $66.00 dollars a piece.
Im positive you can get them at a junk yard both for that price.

search for 2006 torsion bars on that website?

----------

i found this
http://www.suspensionconnection.com/...nger-lift.html

does it matter that its for a 4wd and mines a 2wd?

----------

also does it matter if its a edge or sport? because mines a sport and all these lift kits say edge and stuff.
like this one
http://www.fatbobsgarage.com/catalog...-1998-2011.htm

how would look if i put that on top of a 3 inch body lift? good idea or bad? thanks

All that you linked is expensive crap. You can get keys from a older ranger and save $80 bucks

I would pre-key... after a pre-key my '08 sits 100% level with very little torsion crank. As long as you leave you're stock blocks in the back that's the best way to go to get her level.
