yes it will give you lift. the torsion keys are reindexed to lift the front and the adjuster bolts should be about were they were from the factory, and the shackles obviously lift the rear so you'll still have the factory rake unless you crank the adjuster bolts up even more. you could get the same effect by cranking up your torsion bars and installing an add a leaf in the rear for alot cheaper.

Agree the keys are just about worthless and can't be any better then cranking them.

Somebody told me that the t-bar keys can give you more lift beyond cranking the t-bars all the way up if thats what you are looking for. Which sounds possible but it should make it ride like crap if it does.

Either way you could buy the keys and shackles way way cheaper. I paid $40 for the shackles. I have seen the keys for $60.
