Help, Newbie, Is my truck stock?
 
Is my truck the stock ride height in the front? I've noticed trucks that are lower in the front, and I've seen leveling kits available online to make the truck look like what I have. I'm considering returning it to stock in an effort to improve the ride, but I'm not sure how it was done. Maybe with torsion bar keys.

My friends 2011. We found it to be about 2" lower in the front and the same in the back.

not sure but there may be a leveling kit on your truck. it looks pretty even from the front to the rear....but im sure all with your yr truck will have some better insight into it...i know my brothers 08 is taller than my 10 without anything on it.

Looks lifted to me, front has spring spacer maybe? Is there a block between the leafs and axle in the rear? Looks about 2" in rear and 1.5" in front.

I'm assuming the back of the truck is stock height, I didn't see any block between the axel and leaf springs. Everything looks stock to me. I just cant tell if the torsion bar keys are stock or not. Any guesses?

Nope...no guesses here. I'd look at the top of your spring perch for a 2" to 2.5" spacer.

Is this what your referring to Maddog?

Lower part of the leaf spring.

It looks like someone could have cranked up the torsion keys all the way, to make the truck stand up a bit.

We backed off the bolts on the torsion bar keys and lowered the truck about 1". I guess it was the torsion bar keys. Ride is only slightly better on bumpy roads. Thanks for all the replies.
