    Default torsion bars

    I turned up the torsion bars on my 97 to lift it about two inches...thats not even all the way but now it rides like a horse and bugy...i have two questions...will the aftermarket torsion keys make it ride any smoother??..also can i continue running stock shocks??also a guy wants to sell me some shocks meant to be on a 4" lift would thosoe work with just a two inch lift

    With aftermarket keys it will run rougher because you'll crank them up even higher! I would recommend running longer shocks, if you do ever happen to max out your suspension, pop goes the ends. For the aftermarket shocks, measure twice, purchase once.

    Good luck!

    I would use the ReadyLift leveling kit. There good quality keys and comes with shock extensions.
