Hey guys, I'm not to good with suspension work. The lift on my truck came with it when I bought it. I have had a headache at replacing boots and tie rods. Torsion bars are cranked as far down as they can go but the angles of the control arms and tie rods still sit way to far up.
Any advice helps! I'm probably just over looking something stupid :help :rof

I have no idea. It's a RCD 6in lift. I'm just curious if there is a cheaper fix than going with a new lift.

If factory upper control arms then what Mike said. Factory keys can be tricky to get right. VIN at dealership should get the right color factory keys.

Anyone can recommend which keys I need would help. The torsion bars are cranked all the way down. Do I need lowering keys or leveling ones?? Sorry it may be a dumb question. No idea around suspension work haha

im gonna guess you have aftermarket keys, especially if you backed the bolts down as far as they will go. its hard to tell with the picture sideways but the CV angles dont look THAT bad, maybe a few degrees off straight.

Sorry for the bad picture. But it's pretty bad I'm guessing around 30 degrees up. Maybe more. How hard is it to change the keys out??
