Default Add a leaf and Torsion key kit??

I came across this on Ebay and was wondering your opinions on it and if it was a good price? It says it will fit my year ranger but I thought I read somewhere on here that I wouldn't be able to do a torsion key to my truck? I don't want to shell out the money for a suspension lift and am on the fence about a BL due to what a friend has told me about them, so this appears to be perfect for me. I have no idea how it works either so if someone could enlighten me that would also be greatly appreciated!
Here's the link! Thanks!!

Thanks Tom, I've looked at that thread, are the same benefits your talking about for free just cranking the T-bars? If so, I've already done that but still would like a few more inches in the front and rear.

Is it possible to do the torsion keys in combination with cranked T-bars? I read about bad axle angles and wearing down cv joints and definitely want to avoid that.

Thanks Kurt, I just read over that Torsion Key thread for the third time and I think i finally understand what their talking about.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when adding the aftermarket larger keys on top of already cranked T-bars it puts the axle and entire front suspension at too extreme of an angle therefore wearing out ball joints, tie rod ends, and cv joints? It sounds like it way more trouble than its worth...I guess ill just have to live with the height my trucks at now.

Tbar keys are precranked if you put a standard 3" key at sock height on the bolt it will lift the truck around .5" vs cranking the tbars. That won't really mess the truck up...the issue people have with keys is they crank a 3" key all the way down and that fucks shit up.

Also that procomp aal is $35 and keys are $35 if yiooou get them separately. So whomever is selling that crap is m/aking a pretty penny.
