Default Re: 2wd 4wd does it matter?

Putting that key lift in is technically the same. If u don't want the harsher ride then don't do it. That's why I have not cra ked mine. If you just want lift, thrn buy a body lift. Trust us, we posted in your thread for a reason.

EDIT: I seen your signature says you already have body lift. So what are u wanting to do now, just level it? If so cranking tbars is best way.

Not sure if you avoided my post or if you simply skimmed over it, so I'll post it again.

In the best case scenario, the torsion keys at a minimum cause as much wear & tear as a torsion crank while giving you exactly the same lift, and a lighter wallet. Worst case scenario torsion keys mess up your suspension bad.

i would man. I had mine maxed then i lowered them a lot for a way better ride. And i only have f-bars the weakest of them all and i couldn't take the beating anymore. It was insanely ruff and uncomfortable. I lost a lot of lift from de-cranking them but i haven't loved my truck this much since i bought it lol You can crank them a little to take the sag out of them from over the years of driving on them.
