Torsion bar keys (MI)

i dont need to hear how bad keys are for everything blah blah and that they will ruin everything...looking for a set for cheap to experiment with...not the stock or "pre key" ones but some of the lift ones that everyone hates

There is a set on their way to your house. Expect them in 4-10. Seriously.

ive had mine sence 07-08ish and no problems! they are a b*tch to put in. the flange where you clamp on the puller bent on my truck so i had to use a chain over that cross member. Hope you dont have any problems i wanna see how high you can go sence our trucks are basically gonna be the same set up.

just make sure you get an alignment... and i don't think that's a point anyone would argue...

It's not that hard. More time consuming than anything. Search on here. I think there may be a how-to.

Really comes down to having the right tools, and disconnecting the shocks helps too. I have mine maxed out already it's fine, but I do need longer shocks.

as zach said THIS IS NO BIG DEAL. if it takes more than an hour to install both, somethings wrong. you need a 10mm socket, 13mm socket, 2 jaw puller and an air hammer or normal hammer. you guys are over thinking it
