You don't want torsion lift keys, read the sticky: Torsion Lift Keys ???

Just crank your torsion bars, it's free.

no as long as you have torsion bars. but i wouldnt run a level kit or anything like that.. cause your talking about one harsh ride up front.. plus worn out parts. if its 4x4 i definately wouldnt do it cause of the CV shafts

He has Tbars, no it shouldnt matter about the keys, crank your keys in order to level your truck out. The after market keys are a waist of money and time your other option is to go the JY and get some ealier keys and pre-key your truck.

You don't need that. Like the others posted above just go out and crank your bars. Nothing is required for you to do that.
