Default Lifting a 05' 1500 Ram

Whats the deal with level kits for 05' rams. Every place seems to carry nothing for a 05'. All I've seen is these torsion bar keys by Tuff Country but it says that the ride may be harsher. anyone have these?

I don't know how Dodge does their torsion bars, but I'm assuming it's like a Chevrolet.

When you crank (tighten) your torsion bars, it makes your front end higher. You can't crank too much or it stresses out your CV angles and gives them bad angles, which will cause your ride to stiffen up. And yes, you WILL feel the difference. People normally don't crank their bars more than 1 1/2 inches. More than that will be bad.

These Torsion keys say that they relocate the torison bar higher without having to crank the bars stiffer. I haven't had the time to jump under the truck and took a look around to see whats what in depth

The kit comes with bigger torsion keys than what's in there stock. It will ride a little stiffer because you are putting more pressure on the torsion bars to lift the truck which in turn limits the amount of travel you have in the suspension.
