    Yes you can lift the front of your truck with new keys. Those ones look like they would do the trick.

    Depending how much you want to lift the front end, you might be able to get away with just cranking the torsions up a bit. I would try that and see how you like it before I bought the keys. On your truck you can go up approx 1.5 in without severely changing your ride quality. Make sure that you keep track of how many complete 360 deg turns you make with your wrench, and do the same on the other side. 5 or 6 complete turns seems to be the trick. Also make sure that you get an alignment soon after your adjustment. If you don't achieve the stance you were looking for, you can always let it back down the same number of turns that you cranked it up, and you'll be back at the stock setting.

    If you do adjust the stock keys, make sure you do it with the front wheels off the ground. Here's my results with the stock and then lift keys.

    KyleZ71, measure your truck before you start so if its to stiff after you adjust the bars go can go back down to the stock setting. Just a suggestion.

    I looked at the keys that eporter2980 put a link to. 50 bucks, can't beat that. And it'd be easier on the truck, ill order them next pay period haha
