Exclamation Can I still use lowering keys ???

I have my torsion bar bolts taken all the way out but I still want to go lower on the front and was wondering if I can still use the Belltech 3" lowering keys and still have enough clearance or if that will make it too low I am new to the whole lowering a 4x4 lol

Well,thing is if you use lowering keys with the bolts backed all the way out you might be TOO low. might have to put the bolts back in.

From your previous posts. Hows the truck running. did you get all the wiring whoa's straightened out?

Id fix all the problems the truck has 1st before doing any mods to it

you have a leaking brake line and your worrying about lowering it ?

Im not trying to be mean or rude or any thing but your wife drives it .

Its better to fix the existing problems before modding it

I know I need to fix the existing problems 1st this has been told to me over and over again I just need the money to do so and not sure if it is the line that is leaking could be something else so I am going to take it to a local mechanic and have them look over the entire motor and check everything and whatever is wrong I am going to have them fix it .... but when your low on money it is kind of hard and I didn't say I was going to mod it anytime soon just getting some ideas and I have already decided I am not going to lower it , pretty stupid of me to think I was going to lower a 4x4 I am just going to lift it like originally planned
