Let's talk about T-bar crankin stuff...

Okay, from what I read in the past the Ford "Green Keys" are the way to go for a mild lift on the front to level it out. Now with that, it increases shock travel obviously and I don't want to swap shocks at this point so....

Is there a 1" spacer that I could shim the shock down to stay in the better operating area?

Would 2" be okay to lift the front with stock shocks or should I go with 1.5"?

I think that my Z needs to be up in the air a bit more vs being lowered as it is now. lol

Thanks! :D

There is no Ford green keys. There is ford keys and green keys off of 1/2 Chevys that the HDs use to raise the front end. You just need to order a set of ford keys and install them. Also make sure that your shocks don't top out while cranking. I had this problem with mine and it rode horrible. Nothing some spacers couldn't fix though. You can just stack some washers for spacers if you like.

I just stacked some washers below where the top of the shock mounts. Before cranking I would just disconnet the top of the shock mount. After your are done cranking on the new keys, install a few washers on top of the shock mounting bolt and your set.
