Shouldn't this be in the correct section of the forum? According to your information you have an '05. I would think you might get a better response in the correct Gen forum.

No worries, I just figured you would get a better response in that section, seeing as we don't have torsion bars, haha.

You will need a torsion lift keys, you will also need a special clamp to release the pressure on the bars. Check with some places that sell the leveling kits they can usually install them for less then what the clamp costs! or you can go hillbilly and just crank the bolts up just a little harder on the truck and you could have a problem with alignment

Diesel, seeing as how this is a section for 4th Gen Rams (2009+), that would make 2002-2005 suspension questions not relevant, seeing as they are different Gen.

I went with a set of "RAM CAM" torsion keys in my 03 laramie, These are adjustable leveling and lowering keys, Very nice product, would recomend them to anyone.
