I'm trying to do my research on this before I do anything and had some questions. First of all the truck sits higher in the back. I don't want to lower the back for load purposes. I'm thinking of adjusting the torsion bar to bring the front up. I don't want anything drastic. Maybe an inch or less than two. If I adjust that, how is that going to affect the ride and handling with bumpy roads and all.

I lifted mine up about 2" give or take a little. The ride got a little harder but its alot better. It has a more postive feel. I can feel those little bumps but I can go over speed bumps alot faster and it soaks it up. Some say its way harsh but I guess they have never ridin in a real truck with leafs springs all around and a solid front axle. Just try it and see how you like it. But for me I also have airbags in the rear so it rides like a 2500. If you don't like it just put them back down to stock, but if you go as high as I did you'll need new shocks. oh and I did a whopping 6 full turns on each bolt but I also think that before I started the bars were a little tired. I have some pics im my gallery if you need a reference to the hieght.
No that's not it. The one you need to turn is about under the door attached to a long rod the bolts face straight down. It also helps if you jack the front up so it is easier to turn them. There are 2 and need to adjust both. One per side.
