i dunno about the keys, some will say just do a torsion bar crank as it's cheeper and you get the same results. however the ride and is effected with both and so is wear and tear on drivetrain parts.
for some reason though i don't think your worried about the ride.

i do know one thing. you need to post up some pictures of that brazil model ASAP

Front end should be exactly the same. Rear end may be different. I'm only going off of what the crew cab(4 full size doors) have....04+ crew cabs have outboard mounted shocks and a Dana axle. I can't really comment on what works from our trucks on those trucks as our shocks are inboard with a Ford axle. Not many (if any) would suggest using torsion keys as a way to lift the truck.



Would you mind posting pics of your truck's underside for us?? Front end, rear end w/ a shackle pic, shoot pics of the entire truck while you're at it too. lol. We wanna see foreign trucks(to us) here!!!!

Yah, seriously, take pictures of all the stupid parts of your truck you dont think we'd care about.

I want to see:

front suspension
rear suspension.
gauges
center console
overhead console(if you have one)
rear seating if its a crew cab.
and anything else that seems cool..

Do it please!
