Hey MadMike, what kind of 2" leveling kit did you get? I just want a little more room to put some 285/75/16's under my truck.

Ok man thanks! Yeah I am looking at a superlift leveling kit that comes with new indexed keys. The kit also comes with offroad superlift shocks that are a tad taller than stock ones. I would hope that would make it ride less stiff almost like stock. Of course these trucks ride stiff already thanks to the torsion bar suspension. Or to those who would know, unlike me lol, is there really any need for new shocks if I get new indexed keys?! If not, then I would be fine just getting new keys.

Hmmm I'm thinking I should get new shocks regardless of a leveling kit or just cranking the t-bars. My truck has 96,000 (almost 97,000) with stock shocks that have been on there since 32,000 miles. Basically my truck rides like a$$. And the back shocks make a heck of a racket when going over speed bumps or putting weight in the truckbed.
