Default torsion bar keys

ok guys i have two questions i going to put in here... im new to the suspension lift thing but here they go

1. Does anyone know where i can buy FACTORY torsion bar keys for my truck. i prefer online since i live on a army base and I move around alot.

2. When i do the lift in the back (either AAL or Blocks or shackles) do i need to get extended shocks for the back? i know the front wont need them.

thank you

Cranked mine yesterday and couldnt believe how high the front end came up.

How exactly does turning those bolts raise front end so much?

it will increase the distance so the stock shocks will be limited. It wont hurt anything right now but down the road I would upgrade.

I dont drink so a Dr. Pepper will work
