So i have to lift it up first. Do i have to life the whole truck up or can I just like the front up to do this. How many turns do I have to do in order to level a 2500hd duramax with the rear. Does it matter that I dont really know what im doing? or would it be better to just let someone who does do it for me.

jack the front up and tighten the adjusting bolts. let it down and bounce on it or drive it around the block to let the suspension cycle and then settle. repeat and adjust till you get it how you want it. you will need an alignment afterwords.

yes, you ride will be a bit rougher. no, you don't need longer shocks. yes, cranking can lead to accelerated wear of front end parts. no, just leveling it shouldn't give you too many problems.

I tightened the bolt but didnt notice a difference and the difference didnt show with a tape measure. can someone post a picture of what the stock keys look like. The ones on my truck look like they're after market. I don't know though because I bought the truck used.

That link wasnt really that helpful. I tried on two different computers to get the pictures to display and they wouldnt. I guess where im confused is should the bolts be all the way in or out to get the front higher up?

I guess the guy before me had after market keys installed. The ride quality is no different. I guess whats throwing the leveling off is the front tires have a little less tread on them then the back ones. Ill be getting new tires within the next few weeks.
