    I am looking at a chevrolet 2500 diesel 1995. it is really short and i want to lift it up but I cant find a good suspension lift for it. I did find some for a 1500 would it work on the 2500 or is that not strong enough?
    If it doesnt work is there any sites out there with cheap lifts only like 2-3 inch lift?
    thanks Jon

    Are you looking for the keys or a lift kit?
    The keys are easy and cheap to get.IIRC you can use the 1500 keys on the 2500.
    I know you can on the 99-06 BS.
    If you are looking for a lift kit then you need one for a 2500.
    You can turn your stock keys up a bit and through a block in the rear.

    Is your truck a 6 or 8 lug 2500?

    A 4'' lift is a pretty common and easy lift to come by for those trucks.
    I just found a skyjacker 6'' for my 99 K2500 classic chassis,a couple months ago
    for $1500.

    By cranking on your torsion keys and plowing after awhile you will twist the torsion bars. If you want to lift your truck and plow put a body lift with some bigger tires.

    1500 keys also known as GREEN keys will lift a 2500 and ford f-150 keys will lift a 1500. You will have to get shock extension or longer shocks depending on how much you go
