Saved Myself a Couple Hundred

I never liked the way my 2015 has its nose in the ground and *** in the air, so, I researched the forum here and found I could level it a couple inches myself my just adjusting the factory torsion keys.

That's what I did and raised the truck 2 inches. I could have used another inch but had used all the adjustment on the key bolt.

It looks better now, plus I got an additional 2 inches in height w/o spending a dime. . .except for having it re-aligned.

It may save you a couple hundred now but in the long run you'll be spending twice that when you wear out parts.

Using the torsion bar just a bit is ok but, maxing them out to attain your lift is going to put extra strain on the suspension..

I purchased the SuspensionMaxx leveling kit with UCA's, differential drop spacers, torsion lift keys, and Bilstiens. Love it!!! And the drop spacers keep the CV shafts in the correct angle. It sits level.
