Ok who has messed with torsion bars for levelling?

Who has cranked their torsion bars to level? Do you get enough height? is the ride like a buckboard after? I know I heard of one peron who didn't get an alignment after and is good, anyne else? Or shoud I get some new keys and shock relocator bracket, and bilstiens?

I did mine with the stock keys. Rode like crap after and clunked quite a bit until I got the bilsteins put in. Now it rides just as good, if not better than stock.

Thanks. Just make sure you get an alignment after. Mine was a little darty after until I got an alignment.

Cranked up 1.5 inches on stock keys. Swapped shocks to Rancho and had it aligned. It is a little stiffer but nothing bad, it drives like a truck.

Hopefully it would, the reasone I asked about the ride is because I cranked the torsions on a chev I had and I pretty near had to wear a kidney belt while drivin cause it felt like the seat was tied to the frame.

Cranked mine on my '05, with the stock keys and shocks. It rode a little rougher, but was still better than a 2500.

LOL. That's what you get for buying a bowtie. Seriously, though, crank t-bars about two inches, install some Bilstein 5125's, and call it a day.
