Just installed 2in Rough Country keys and truck rides rough. Only thing I didn't install was the shock extender. Could that be the reason it ride like that?

Well you cranked a spring tighter, your suspension is closer to full droop at ride height and your shocks are most likely maxing out. The ride does not get softer when you crank.

when you crank, you extend the shocks.. get the extension or new shocks :) n2.0's are actually very good for how cheap they are

pics of front suspension angles?

and what everyone else said. either spend the money on shocks and/or upper control arms. or buy a real lift. or deal with it.

where can I get the A arm?
install shock extenders or get new shocks first.. the n2.0 shocks have a decent ride with the keys cranked..

Did you crank the new keys? Mine rides great with my keys and shock extenders. I have ready lift keys cranked just enough so there is about an 1/8 gap between the key and the crossmember. Had it a little higher and I did ride a little stiff but still not bad.

I don't think I crank theme all the way I'll have to get back under there and check. I know there about and 1/8 between the top A arm and the bump stop. Think I'm just order new shocks instead of the extenders.
