i have already spoken with adrenaline motorsports about this kit and they said that they'd give me the kit minus the rear lift blocks for $99 to my door.

sounded great to me until i really thought about it. my stock keys are already cranked, i got about 2" of lift out of them. i'm wondering if these aftermarket keys are only going to give me an extra inch of lift because i've cranked mine up.

i don't know how much lift is possible to gain out of larger keys because of the geometry and what not so if any of you have experience with a similar kit, please help me out before i waste $99.

read through thris thread....it's a former torsion key owner.... http://therangerstation.com/forums/showthread.php?t=77357



Given the year of your truck, it's a safe assumption your bars are worn out. Replace those or go all out and say hello to the 4" Superlift kit. All keys do is multiply all the downsides of cranking bars....to an unsafe and unsmart amount.

from what little i understand about torsion keys, i dont think aftermarket keys help lift anymore than factory keys.

is $99 really worth 1'' of lift and more stress on your CVs and the trouble of getting your old keys out? if it were me i would put that money in the suspension lift piggy bank

Since there's a bagillion threads on this, i'm going to say do it for once.

If anything, you'll learn how to work on/change front suspension components atleast.:icon_rofl:
