hey guys i know im new to the site but i am not a total noob and have done some research i am just looking for a little help. I have a 2004 ram 1500 4wd and i am looking to level the front. From what i have read the 02-05 has torsion bars in which you can just get the keys and tighten them up to almost 2" which would make it level. Is this done just to save money rather then buying the leveling kit? I originally just wanted to purchase a set of bilstein 5100 but i see they do not make them for the 02-05, instead i would need to get the bilstein HD which are not adjustable. Either way i am going to purchase shocks eventually as my truck has 102k on it, is the only difference between tightening te torsion bar to save money rather then buying the leveling kit? Hopefully you guys understand what im getting at. Thanks for the help :smiley_thumbs_up:

I just installed the 2.5 readylift to my 2002 dodge ram. Pushing the stick keys to the max causes problems. The thing is if your truck had stock 15 inch shocks they will need 17in. I bought 17in pro comp for around 35 bucks. I still have the same stock ride. It is not bullshit.

yeaiBoost...the two differences i see is #1. the ready lift key has a different angle than the rough country and has the ability (not recommended) to go higher than 2in. and #2. is just quality. You get what you pay for. Im not talking down on rough country its just more of a preference i guess...
