    i put add a leafs in in my truck and new torsion keys my rear is at 40.5 inches from the ground to the fender well and my front i could only get it to 39.5 inches and i really want it to be level so my question is can i buy longer grade 8 bolts to use as adjusters. i know this is bad for cv angles and ball joints and blah blah but i just want to know if it can be done

    It probably can. I'd stay away from it. That's a hard angle for the front end.

    If you know its bad why would you want to do it? Makes no sense to me to wear out perfectly good parts.

    i decided against it just for the fact that this is also my daily driver and after driving it it has stiffened up alot and it isn't really worth the ware and tare on the truck plus the more i thought about it the idea started to sound like less and less of a bood idea from when i first thought of it but i want to say thenks for the help i posted this question on another forum and some people help but others are kind of a$$es about it
