If all you are looking for is 2" or so (or level the truck out) then just crank your stock torsion bars to level the truck. It will make it look a bit more aggressive and allow you to run a little taller tire without rubbing (given the correct offset and width).
Don't waste any money on aftermarket keys, they are a gimmick. Use the money to buy a decent set of shocks that are 2" longer (front) and stock height for the rear.
Agreed! ^^^^^^ After you crank the torsion bars, you're gonna want to get an alignment after you put the shocks on as well.
