I am thinking of the 2" keys for my 2002 SLT 1500. I know I have to get the alignment redone but will i have any issues with the pinion angles after the install?

I've got a Truxx leveling kit I've had about 13 months, and so far I've had no problems at all. At all meaning, tire wear, ride, steering etc. I'm probably the wrong person to ask on the rough rides because I'm used to riding on tractors and trucks with stiff suspensions that ride like log wagons.

A leveling kit should just be a new key for torsion bar trucks or a metal spacer for trucks with struts.
Some of the leveling kits that you will find come with the replacement torsion keys and longer bolts to suspend them, giving you a higher lift in the front. They also come with shock extenders, back blocks and new u-bolts.
