    4 wheel drives use torsion keys, 2wd uses coil spacers. I personally went with blocks for the back. i think they give a better ride, but they might give you more axle wrap. its all personal preference.

    Pro Comp torsion keys in front and 3" blocks in rear. I went with blocks too so as not to stiffen up the ride too much, axle wrap shouldn't be an issue since the 3" block replaces the factory 2" block. The truck has 3" of lift in front and 1.25" in rear.

    If you have a 2001 4WD than buying Coil Spacers will give you some pretty expensive coasters. You dont have coil springs so they wont do anything for you. you want torsion keys for the front and lift blocks for the rear. coil spacers only work on 2wd.
