33" help Level II

I know this has been dicussed before but I can't find the answer I'm looking for. I have an 05 Level II and a set of 33x12.5x15 off my brothers truck he totaled, tires are almost brand new. I want to put them on with as little money as possible. I've had a 3" BL on a 95 ranger with 33x12.5 on the stock 15x7 rim with no problems, would this work again? I travel an hour to and from work everyday so I want to keep a good ride and I've heard the torsion key/ shackle lift is stiffer and will wear out components faster so thats what bothers me about that lift. I'm open to any advice. I read about the 1" BL but the 3" comes with all the right gear to make it run like it did before the install right? Any suggestions will greatly help.

my 33x12.5-15's fit stock with the t-bars cranked and it really doesn't ride that bad. i think it rides smoother than when i had the factory stuff. oh i also have 15x8's too... and mine don't rub at all!

Thats my truck above lol

Yes mine rubs the torsion bar just a little when at full lock. Its really no big deal.

Only reason I noticed it rubbing was because of the paint wore off. But I also have 60k on my torsion bars so they could be sagging a little
