Add-A-Leaf (aal)......it goes into your leaf spring pack and gives about 2" of lift.......

socket is what is needed to crank on the torsion bars...

i doubt you will be able to get 2" of lift out of the torsion bars.......

get a spindle lift for the front....it will give you 3" of lift...

ahhh well a spindle lift wont work......the smallest suspension lift for your truck is a 4" Superlift kit......

search www.summitracing.com or www.rockymountainsusp.com for lift prices...

you can still crank your torsion bars and get an add a leaf or chevy shackle . do a search but with a 4wd it may not be a good idea to crank it more then 1 inch but many people do it without problems . use the search engine . 50 - 150 dollars max for 1 or 2 inches.
