    Nothing fancy or dramatic, but I added a three inch lift block to the rear today. Two hours work and now the truck doesn't have the slight squat that it had after I put the keys in. The difference is subtle but I think it looks better and I guess that's all that matters!:lol:

    I installed my new keys almost a year ago (March '09) and so far I'm very happy with the results, the ride quality is a little firmer but hardly any real difference. Mechanically, it's been about 20,000 miles (I have 80,000 on the truck now) so who knows? I'll just have to wait and see!

    Thanks Mike, I think it looks kinda sad with the winter wheels and tires on, another six weeks or so and I can break out the summer treads from the basement!

    Just a recomendation if you havent already trimmed off the U bolts you might want to, you'd be surprised what all they'll catch on.

    X2-that's funny you said that because I was thinking the same thing.

    Adampaul you must have had some serious squatting problems, because your truck doesn't look unbalanced now at all. I must say that it looks naked without the nice wheels, and those fire engine red calipers you have. Keep up the fantastic work...............amy

    are your keys maxed all the way up? i have a2inch leveling kit from rough country and i was wanting to tighten my keys more and put a 3 inch block in the ba, but i was just wondering if your keys were all maxed out or not, i just did mine to where the factory keys were at, and it leveled it well just now i wanna go with the blocks in the back
