    Cool ques about torsion key

    I dont really understand if the product you buy says 1-2 inches of front end lift, does that mean you can adjust it to 1 or 2 inches or 1.5. or whatever desired height?

    u can adjust them however u like, u can most likely get more than 2 in out of them,considering the higher u go the more stress it puts on ur ball joints, cv shafts, and the rest of the front end, if u stay under 2 in though, u will be fine

    basically what i would like to do is raise the front another 2 inches and put a four inch block in the rear.
    the truck is level as it is.that would make it level. i'm just cheap.
