07 and earlier torsion keys

I am looking to buy torsion keys for my 08 FX4 to do the pre key mod. If anyone has them to sell please let me know.

Thanks!

Why not just crank the bars? The keys are a waste of money.

I don't feel like debating why getting keys give you more lift, but they do by like 2"

The lift keys off ebay are a waste of money. 07 and back ones aren't though. Just gets him to where all pre-08's are.

Yeah he can crank the bars....but won't get the same height as an 07 and earlier truck. PreKey mod fixes that and makes it the height of an 07 with the same bolt pre-load.

It is a form of a lift key, but a stock one that doesn't damage parts and allow for overcranking like the aftermarket 'leveling kits' do. Basically, converting the suspension to 07 and earlier.



BUMP! for PreKeys! I'll have a set someday...at this rate, I'll have stock keys for sale in about 12 months. lol.
