crank vs swap

08 sport. am considering doing the much talked about prekey mod. i guess my question is exactly what the difference is between just turning the existing keys, or doing the prekey mod if the exact amount of suspension lift is achieved and the geometry is identical. i would appreciate anyones input.

just crank, Rescue said it cost him around $200cdn for the swap and i think everyone is forgetting to get an alignment afterwards...

not worth it, if your that insecure about an inch then you got problems (just kidding)

well if you just crank them you probably need an alignment anyways, and just look on kijiji or craigslist for a rolled ranger and buy the keys out of it. you can get what? inch, inch and a half out of just cranking...but pre key you can get 2.5ish, if you get #1 bars maybe 3 inches out of it? (if you crank them all the way) your probably gonig to need an alignment regardless, and if you can get the keys/blocks for $50-75 i think thats the better way to go

if you want it level i would do the keys.

howells did his keys and i believe he didn't need an alignment.

you can find them used for cheaper than 200.
