Default Advice? Torsion Bar Crank or Leveling Spacer

I want to level my truck and have thought about just cranking the torsion bars but I know it stiffens the ride quite a bit. Does a metal spacer do the same thing? Is a metal spacer similiar to a torion key and wear some things faster? And is the ride just as stiff as a torsion bar crank? Or would a leveling coil spring be the way to go?

different suspension. spacers are for 2wd coil spring trucks, and t bars are for 4wd. except not your 4wd. t bars were added in the 98 model year. you have a ttb suspension, traction bars i think. and im not real big on those, as far as know how. i hear they flex better though. someone will know.

Sorry for all the questions about my suspension but how much of a lift would a F150 coil approximately give me? And are coil over shocks good? Can they level or lift my truck?
