Chris is right, you have an i-beam suspension and a torsion crank can only work on a torsion bar suspension such as 4x4 trucks or the Edge platform (which is built off of a 4x4 chassis). What it involves is tightening the main spring of the front suspension (torsion bars, other springs include leaves and coils/coilovers which cannot be cranked like a torsion bar) so that it "lifts" the truck a couple of inches by stiffening the spring rate of the vehicle.
