body lift. do not get the keys, they are terrible. just get on summit and get a body lift you will need an extension and maybe some bumper brackets but besides that everything is there

You can crank your torsion bars for free and get the same result the keys give you.

Only if you max them out.

You have to remember it is a truck not a bmw. It will be a little stiffer over larger bumps.
