    Default Torsion Keys...

    I can see I have lots of adjustment left. So do I just tighten the bolts some more to raise the front end.. I just want a 1/2" or so & to level the front end out. The driver side is 1/4" higher than the other side.
    I have them soaking in WD/40 for a week.

    Cool torsion keys

    Its best to lift the front and take the weight off the front end when adjusting the keys. Yes just tighten them. Before you begin measure from the front wheel hub to the top of the fender on both sides and wright these measuements down so you have a record of were you started in case you want to go back down and also so you know how much you raised the truck.
