Ive been going through all the threads but really never got a answer to my questions.

1. The bars that everyone is putting in is just hd bars right?

2. Is there a certain year that i need for my 06?

3. I have the 6" fit kit and we put in the 4" blocks in the back. i have a set of 1" add a leafs in the garage, would i be able to put those bars in and the add a leafs and still be level?

Mine too.

I got about 2.5 inches going with Rough Country bars and ford keys, but they aren't cranked at all.

You don't need any specific year.

And order GK bars from Rough Country, they are about half the price of getting them through a stealership.

i tried keys and my torsion bars first and it was like a skateboard...went to 1 ton torsion bars...and it rode almost factory and got about 1.5" out of it...any newer style hd t-bars should fit. might have certain codes for different tensions due to engine size. i just dont remeber.

I got an easy 2" on my factory keys.. I lowered them down shortly afterwards but regardless, depending on the truck, they'll get 2".

I would be happy if i got another 1.5 and still have a nice ride.
Anybody have the gm part #'s of the ones they used.

Gm has a couple different indexed keys. Some you can get more lift out of. Ive heard swappin a Ford key and gettin between 2.5 - 3". Swapping bars with an HD help, they wont sag as much.

I know that daniel... I looked all over that site and cannot find any torsion bars. I was wondering if he can maybe give me a link or if he ordered them from somewhere else.
