Alright, my bad if this has been an issue that has been posted and or solved before but I couldnt seem to find a thread on this, any body know why Im maxed out on my drivers side at 5 and half turns on the torsion bar bolt, but I gotta go 6 and half on the passenger to level it side to side? Dont understand why the drivers side max's at 5 and a half so I cant level my truck completely due to this problem. Anybody just replaced the bolts?? Thanks to any Info.

I heard of a similar issue to this recently. One thought was that since the gas tank and you are on one side, that bar may sag a bit more over time. I would think bolts would be an option as long as you got the correct grade. Another option might be new keys - which would give you more adjustability with your existing bolts. Guys have used these ebay keys with good success:

Thank you for the info.

I know that when DodgeViper bought the keys that I listed he specifically liked them because they were forged. Just make sure those other keys are forged and not cast.

Jdub2010 i should have said that my experance is from a LONG time ago. ie. 1969, on a 59 ply wagon. and i dont have experance with the newer trucks, they may react diffirant than my experance. seams iam still stuck in the past to much. just give it a try but keep a close eye on the front end parts. pardon my spelling. there are a few things that happen when you get old, but i cant remember what they are.

just wait in a few weeks you will turn 60. just dont get stuck in the past like i have. be sure and spend time with your kids, cause they will be gone way to soon, they are more imporant than your truck. children are ONLY thing you can take to heaven.
