04 2500 HD Suspension

My truck is at AB Spring in Grand Rapids mi (shameless plug) Anyways, we have done a lot of business in the past so when I noticed my “new to me” 04 2500hd squatting pretty bad with wet mulch in the dump bed I decided I needed something done. I had though about one of the adjustable air bladder systems, my friend who owns the place told me to add two leafs to each side – just with the weight of the dump the truck was resting on the second leaf.
Now the back of my truck is alittle high, I don’t want to just crank up the front sway bars so I thought about installing a set of these torsion bar keys to raise it up

Anyone use these before?

Check this site out. I haven't read that anyone has used them for 2500's, but I think they may be able to help.
Good luck.

How do you like the springs in the back? I was considering finding overload springs from a 1 ton. Any pics? I have my torsion bars cranked five turns and it sits pretty high. You may consider doing this. I haven't noticed excessive tire wear and it still handles well.

Ever look into airbags? I have them in my truck and I love them. You can adjust them to the proper hieght when you need it. I had 3000lbs of stone in the back and it didnt drop.
