Bud, you don't have torsion keys on a 2 wheel drive. And no, ford keys will not lift your truck 4".

You need coil spacers

You only need the green keys if you have a 2500....2500s 2 and 4 wheel drive have torsion bars. Ford keys if you have a 4x4 1500. None of this will help you pull anything better.

Well, at least you know what you want. When you say that you want to go 5 in the front and 4 in the back, do you mean that you are going to try and lift the front 5" with torsion keys? If so, not only is it impossible, but cranking your torsion keys more than 2-2.5" is highly frowned upon as it will make your truck ride like shat. Plus you'll put your CV axles through hell.

If you have a 1500 -- Put a 6" lift on that bitch.

If you have a 2500 -- Put a 6" lift on that bitch.
