Keys and blocks

My cousin just lowered his 98 Expedition. Lowering springs in the rear and re indexed keys in the front with drop shocks all around. I would like to do the opposite. IK the consistences of cranking the bars. but could i just do blocks or bigger leafs with keys up front.

You could but the ride is going to be terrible. It will accelerate wear on front-end components as well.

You already have 2" blocks already. I would go with a lift shackle over higher blocks. Stacking blocks or high blocks will increase wheel hop as well.

The torsion key lifts are probably 1-3", I'm not sure, never used them.
