    I'm trying to decide if I should put in a set of green keys to help get my truck leveled up or closer to level with the 2" blocks in the back. With the factory keys damn near maxed out the front sits a bout an inch more or less low in the front and I can't stand it. If it wasn't so obvious then it wouldn't bother me near as bad.

    I've got longer Bilstien shocks in the front already but I don't want the ride to turn to complete **** either. In a perfect world I'd just put a 4" lift on it and that would get me to where I want and then some but I'm still kicking around the idea of getting an LMM next year or so and don't want to spend the 2500 on a lift just get rid of the truck.

    Do you have cognito's now? Green keys will tighten it up some, but with UCA's and shocks it's comparable to stock. Just keys will ride worse, regardless of if it "should" or not.

    Yes I have them now along with longer shocks, and the pitman and idler arm braces.

    FWIW, I have full cognito leveling kit on my cement truck, I mean pickup truck and I still cannot get it to sit level let alone use my cup holders unless the cup is empty. If you want to PM me your number I have some interesting figures to share with you regarding ride height.
