Lift?

Ive got a 99' Ranger still stock running a set of 31-10.50-15's on it. As of right now i have a set a 3" tortion bar keys that i plan on putting in. Is taht a good idea, anybody had any problems outta them before? I want to run 33's i think i should be able to with just the keys because i only want 10.50. I had a set of 33-13.50 tsl's on 12" wide rims under it just to see how bad they would rub and all the hit was the stock fener flare SLIGHTLY. So i should be able to put the keys in and run the 33 10.50's fine right? Any thoughts, ideas?

NO NO NO don't get the torsion keys. All they do is create excessive wear on the suspension parts. You can crank the t-bars up and fit 33x10.5s stock.

cranking the tbars is worse. I have the keys in my truck, and the only reason they make suspension compontents wear out is when you crank the tbars with the key, which is what most guys do.
