I hope I can put my blocks in tomorrow, its a 3" block then I'm cranking my Torsion Bar as much as I can prolly get 2" but I'm okay with the rake, if I dont then despite what everyone tells me about getting bigger keys, I'm going too.. I've found them on eBay, they look legit, and have good reviews from what I've read, and yes, I'll be sure to take pictures. Just thought I'd let ya'll know.

Have you read anything here?

If you can get the suspension to rest at the bump stops with the factory t-bar keys, you won't get any more lift from re-indexed keys. You won't have a softer ride, you won't get anything but a hole in your wallet and worthless peices of metal.

Jesus...why don't people get it?

3" blocks in the back will be too much for cranking the tbars. Mine had 2" blocks and I thought it was almost too much rake. It looks goofy with a 3" block back there unless you buy a lift kit.

And like rebel said- your not getting anymore lift than your bumpstops will allow. You could always mount your top ball joint on the bottom of your upper control arm, put in a Ball Joint spacer, trim a little of the bumpstop, and add some keys- but then your CV Shaft will last about 5 feet.

yeha mine were longer too but having 3 inches of bolt hanging down looks a little goofy, not to mention dangerous.. you could catch a rock or stump.
good call and could you (again) tell me the distance from ground to where the door step is? and honestly how bad does it look like it rakes.
