Don't install lift keys. If you crank them up enough to get more lift you'll over index your CVs and eat through ball joints, especially with big tires and the super lift on there.

You cannot put lift keys on. They are the EXACT same as the superlift ones.

Actually the Superlift re-uses the stock keys. BUT it still wouldn't be a good idea to use lift keys along with the Superlift.

Yeah, lift keys do the exact same thing as cranking your bars. But the title of this thread got me thinking. Could you do a BL, superlift and then put a LT kit on the superlift? i would never do it since the higher CG will make the LT kind of pointless, but sounds like it has a potential of working. I dont know much about the DBR kits etc.

It's been my dream for a LONG TIME to put a DBR LT kit ontop of a Superlift. On paper, it should work since the DBR uses stock knuckles and since the superlift drops the LCA's and uses new knuckles, it should work. I've wanted to ditch the BL, DBR ontop of Superlift and run 37's.

how does one get triple lifted? the only two components that can be lifted are either suspension (keys shocks/springs, coils, wierd shaped/bent t-bars, whatever effects the suspension) and BL. the only thing i could think of would be re-welding the body mounts on the cab to raise the body (reverse of a body drop or notch?)
