https://www.illusivefabrications.com...roducts_id=437 the price on these will be going up pretty soon. The manufacturer has already raised their retail price on them.

Why don't you just flip your stock keys to get lower and not buy anything?

Or get stock 08+ keys that are re-indexed 1.5" lower

Yea everybody seems to be happy with them and has been able to get the truck realigned. I remember somebody compaired them to another brand of keys and the ones I sell had better grometry to them. Theres pics on RPS somewhere in the lowered section of them.
