you can also just crank the torsion bar bolts for a free level... Do a search or check the FAQ section for instructions on how to do it...

What Hammer didn't tell you is a t-bar crank can make the ride rather harsh in some cases. Seems to depend on the truck and driver's preference, but just throwing that warning out there.

So can the leveling keys. They both achieve height by putting tension on the torsion bars, same principal. So ifn it were me, I'd try the free level first...

ha ha, good catch, I was basically responding to the first response where torsion bars were mentioned. Didn't even bother to look at the OPs specs, or lack thereof...
