Default 05 HBS Level

Hey everyone! So I picked up my first Ram - a beuaty of only 64K miles, 4wd, SLT QC Hemi - and after much consideration, I think I'm going to keep it simple and level the beast, widen the rims to 9"(x20") and wrap them with 35s.

It seems a few members have the hell bent steel leveling kits and like them so I went to their site to order - but theres nothing for a 2005 1500 4wd. Did I miss something or do they not make one for ONLY that year?

Any help/opinions/advice is appreciated. Pics too if you have a similar set up!
Thanks!

For those who are also curious...

I answered my own question: HBS doesn't sell leveling kits (at least they're not advertising them on their site) for torsion bar suspension Rams. You need off-set keys - check Daystar, I think that's what I'm going for.

Thanks everyone!

For now I tightened up the torsion bars and it gave me the 2" I wanted, but I lost some rebound in the front suspension so I'm going to put a set of bilstiens on it and see if that helps, if not, then I'm going to buy the keys and have a shop change them out for me.
