View Full Version : Would replacing ford keys with GM keys help ride quality?
10-21-2006, 07:18 PM
The ride is better after the Superlift, but I'd like it a little softer. Since I dont want to crank other than to level the truck, would factory keys get me to where i am level with 7 inches of lift in the rear and would it cause a smoother ride? It seems like all my problems started when I put ford keys in, so I'd like to get everything normal (normal cv angles, normal ride quality, normal tie rod angles) Right now my cv angles are fairly straight, comparable from when i cranked my factory keys.
My set up is this
6-7.5 superlift bracket kit
Factory 2 inch block w/ Superlift 5 inch block
3 inch body lift
315/75r16s on 16x10s
Or...could I put in the 3/4 ton torsion bars with green keys for a better ride? Any thoughts or ideas? I'm half asleep when I'm writing this, so if it doesnt make sense let me know.

Losing those blocks might help, plus it would be alot safer stacked blocks are scarry.

The less crank the smother the ride. #/4 ton bars are stiffer and will ride acodingly.the only way soften the ride is un-crank em. and go to @ 9" in the front. Also skinnier tires would help tremendously. These are really good options arn't they:nutkick:

What about some adjustable shocks? Mine can ride stiff or smooth depending on the setting of the rancho shocks I have.

I don't think it would. I think the only way to get a better ride is decrank. If you change to other keys it's still cranking up the t bars and it will ride stiff.

7 inches of stacked block is very scary.

I dont like the stacked block idea, but superlift says it is safe and will not damage anything. I plan on getting 2 inch AAL's instead of the 2 inch block, would that help at all?

Its not just the fact that the blocks are stacked its just how freaking huge they are. Yes it'd help gettin rid of the 2 inch.
Uncrank your t-bars about 1/2" to 1", it'll soften the ride a little, and you'll never notice the height difference. When I put ford keys in mine, I cranked to level and it rode like $hit. That's what I did, and it helped a lot. Unless you get a tape measure, you can't tell that mine isn't pretty close to level.
