    How much more will the new torsion keys give to a 2006 1500 z71 if the stock keys are maxed out.

    I cranked my stock keys as far as I could go and gained 1 inch of lift, at that point the passenger side adjustment bolt was bottomed out while the driver side still had room to go but of course the truck would have been leaning to one side! I drove the truck this way for a while just to see how the ride was affected, and I can tell you it wasn't very good it made the front end "floaty". As intended from the start I replaced the stock keys with the Pro Comp leveling kit (which is just 2 new re-indexed keys and shorter than stock adjustment bolts) and this gave me 2.5 inches of lift over the stock keys at the factory adjustment.There is enough adjustability to set the Pro Comp keys between 2.25 and 2.75 of lift, but based on my experience,no more or no less. If you want adjustability you could go with the Suspension Max MAXX CAM system which offers adjustable keys.It's a little more pricey, around $250, whereas my kit was only $170. I chose the Pro Comp kit because I didn't need the adjustment capability and they seemed like a good quality product, some of the keys I've seen on E-bay for $99 look like junk in my opinion. In addition the ride with the Pro Comp keys was much better, stiffer than the factory ride, but not too harsh, more like a truck should feel!
    Here are links to the 2 kits I mentioned and the thread I posted on my install, hope this helps.
