You might want to have a mod move this to the suspension forum, but I think you need a set of keys from our body style half ton (6 lug) trucks. You should be able to crank your torsion bars an inch or so and have no problems with those 285's. I have a friend here with a 1/2 ton and 285's, slight crank and he has no problem even off road.

You can use ford keys to get more lift than the GM keys will allow. Check out the specifics on fullsizechevy.com under the tech section.

I done it on a 97 6.5T to fit 35X12.50's on 16.5X10 wheels. You can find the keys on E-Bay cheap and the install is very easy and straight-forward
