I just could not look at the truck sagging up front anymore..I turned up my torsions until the truck was level,and to my surprise i still had alot of adjustment left.I put on 285/75/16 Toyo A/T's and Rancho shock's up front that are 2 inches longer.The difference is awesome and the ride as well.After hearing all the guy's on here spending all that money on a lift kit and tires and wheels to the sum of $5000.00 i fiqured i would give this a try,and i am very happy where she sit's now.I like the fact that if i want to go back to stock i can,that was also a plus.i will post soon as i get some photo's up on here.

yes i had it realined,and now i am waiting on my cognito idler pittman support bracket.I think i will need another alignment after i install the support.I had no rubbing issues at all with these tires,even before i turned it up.The look is great and the ride is just as good.

What's the part number on the extended rancho shocks?, becasue I went to my parts store here and they claim rancho doesn't make an extended shock. Or did you use spacers on a stock size shock?

If you raise the TBars to level the truck do you need to install shocks with 2' more travel to soften the ride and what's the green keys guys are talking about.

When you turn up the torsions you are taking out up travel in the shock.so buy going 2 inches longer it will bring the travel back to stock.The green keys just give you more adjustment than the stock keys will..
