Many people said I needed to do the pre key mod. But I have raised the front by 2 1/2 inches & the T bars are not maxed out yet. I am guessing I can raise the front another inch if I want to. So I dont see why I need to do the pre key mod.

The rear end only came with 1 1/2 in blocks & I got some 2 1/2 in blocks I need to put in. Once I get those installed I will crank the Tbars some more to level it out again.

You know, after seeing everyone doing it, I really want to crank my T-bars to lower the truck but I have never done it before and petrified that I must screw something up... Yes I've seen the write up but I just don't know if it will make a difference in look on my truck...?

2-2.25" thats why people do the prekey mod because it puts your truck higher with out too much stress on the cv joints then you can crank it 2"

Is there a write up on here to do that? Because the way my truck sits if I did that in the back, I am thinking that it will come out to be leveled out front to back. What do you think?
