ok so i put a 3 in bl and 2 in block in the rear on my truck and then cranked my stock torsion keys about 4 turns to clear my 33's, but now i feel as the truck has a ratrod look to it, could i crank the stock keys some more to get some lift, and should i realign it after even if i do it evenly on each side, thanks.

i dont wanna take the blocks out, i only need a little lift in the front to level it out, and i dont wanna put keys in cause ive seen how much of a pain in the ass they can be on a buddys truck, we had to cut the old keys out to get the torsion bar to slide out, does it really make a difference if you crank the stock keys alot compared to getting leveling keys cause all they do is allow you to crank them more right?

What year is your truck? Im guessing 98 or older.

Your not going to get it level with 2 inch blocks in the back. Especially with stock keys.

I wouldn't do it but get some ford keys and it will give you more lift in the front. I woud take out the 2" blocks and get it aligned. If your not happy with that get a small lift.

Theres no way you got 4 inches of lift from cranking the stock keys. Do you realize how ridiculous you sound right now?

I've never seen any torsion bar truck get level with lift in the rear.

My 89 with no lift in back wouldnt even sit level with maxed stock keys.
