Truxxx Leveling Kit

I was searching around and I came across this kit made by Truxxx. It's a leveling kit. Now I know that I can just crank the T-Bars to level out my truck, but that puts extra stress on some of the front end components. What exactly is this kit? How is it different than cranking the T-Bars? Is there still the same amount of stress on the front end components? Thanks

The torsion keys will do the same thing cranking to t-bars will, except it wears the front end components out even more. Do a search on t-bar keys and you'll see all the threads were people ran them and quickly removed them. They're bad news

Thanks dude, I've been wanting to lift my truck a few inches for a little while. I don't want a body lift. The Superlift keeps the torsion bars in the stock location and I already have hit those plent of times so that isn't worth it. The RCD is too expensive and I might as well save up for a SAS if I'm going to do that.

Yeah I'd go RCD or SAS with how you wheel your truck.

Once I finish up college, get into my career then the Ranger will become the trail truck and get all the goodies. Until then it won't grow much height wise.

Those keys are worthless. Crank your t-bars.

Another note on keys....

They put your ball joints in an extreme bind. $200 keys. $300 in ball joints every year or sooner....doesn't make sence.
