    My torsion bars are already cranked but I want to get the front leveled with the rear. Would it be better to crank them some more or buy new torsion keys? If I go with the torsion keys do I NEED an unloading tool?

    Its a bad idea to fully crank them. It puts excessive load on your front end so youll wear it out quicker. And as for the keys.... theres better options out there. You HAVE to get the unloading tool which is $130 if you buy it new. Im sure you can talk to some folks on here about better ways to level your front

    The safest most non harmful way you could buy a leveling kit lol

    Isn't a leveling kit just new keys?

    Depends which one ya get I think. Our options are limited on these t-bar front ends. I think the only other way to raise the front without doing anything to the t-bars is getting some drop spindles

    I didn't buy an unloading tool when I upgraded to #1 bars . I used a 2 prong puller !!! Get er done!!
