So I recently inherited a 99 silverado and I want to lift it a little. I was planning on cranking the keys and adding a leaf in the back to clear 33s without rubbing. I have heard stories of having to redo front ends because of overcranking torsion bars. I was wondering can I put hdtorsionbads on my 1500 and will that give me any lift??

Not sure about the HD bars, might just ride rougher. You can get torsion keys for about 50$ that will lift it more than the stock ones. You can lift to the point the CV axles might bind, but I don’t think the torsion bars alone will do that.

The torsion bars aren't what wears out the front end. It's the front end permanently being at extreme angles.

Thanks for the input.  What brand has them for 50? All I have seen have been upwards of 100

I know that but my torsion bars are old and worn out, figure they might snap at some point too
