    Default Cheap Torsion Keys?

    I am trying to find a good set of lift torsion keys for my 2005 1500 z71 for cheap. I have also heard that stock ford f150 keys will achieve a little more lift that the aftermarket keys. If that is true, where could I find a set of f150 keys for cheap? If not then has anyone found a cheap set of aftermarket keys and where? I have seen on some forums that people have found some for less than $50. That is what I would like to find. I cant seem to find any for less than $150-$300. Thanks for the help guys.

    Cheap torsion key's usually mean one's that are cast iron. if you go with torsion keys make sure they are forged.

    What about Ford keys? Has anyone here had luck with these? I would think I would be able to get them cheaper if they will work. If not then I will be contacting MPC-Silverado in another week or two.
