leveling kit?

so im lookin for some cheap ways to get a little lift on the truck...
wut do these do exactly?
how much do they change the ride quality?(if u can call it quality lol)
i figure $120 isnt bad for 1.5" lift
they're probably pretty easy to install too huh?

edit: i forgot the link lol

just crank the torsion bars...


once you start lifting ****, and putting bigger tires on it stuff is gonna wear out, and there's no way around that fact.

i currently have my t-bars maxed right now. that is your best bet. it was recommended by a good number of members that i not get torsion keys, so i did not. In the near future i will need to get myself a set of #1 bars because these B's will begin to sag lol

cheapest way get class 1 bars there about $100 install them and crank some.. be done with it...


those "keys" all they do is re index your torsion bars the same as cranking them.. its a waste of time and money..
