    Almost all the way, just get a set of keys and solve all the rubbing issues

    Lol torsion keys do the same thing as crankin the bolt all the way. Except now u can crank it even more.

    Seems that way, looks that way but you can definitely tell by the ride, its smoother with the keys done. Maybe its just me but i can tell, and everybody that ride with me can tell.

    thanks for the assistance. the dealership in town says they can throw on a ready lift 2" front and back, with shock extensions. hopefully it wont deteriorate my ride as bad as everyone says. ( perhaps some nicer shocks)

    You could always swap to some coilovers on the front with the brackets I make...not sure if ive posted them on this forum or not, but heres the gist: http://www.performancetrucks.net/for...ersion-518118/

    is this for the 3/4 ton GMT900 truck in your avatar? if that is the case you really shouldnt need much to clear a 33 but with a horrible offset youre going to need to trim

    it ain't that I'm too big to listen to the rumors, It's just that I'm too damn big to pay attention to 'em..That's the difference
