Leveling Issues

I went to level my 03 AVY and the torsion screw maybe has a quarter inch of length left. I am at a 2 inch front end deficit. How can I fix this? Thanks for any help.

First welcome to the club.. Many of the lift manufactures have kits for leveling but to do it right the cost sometimes approaches putting on a lift.

If I start cranking on these will I even get any more ride height cause there only seems to be about 1/3 inch left. Would new keys help along with shock extenders?

Little to none..

If your T-bars are maxed the front end will not have any upward travel left and ride like crap, not to mention unsafe. The wheels can actually lose contact with the pavement when you go over a bump or rise in the road and cause lose of steering and/or braking. You have to go with a quality leveling kit or full blown lift kit to level it out. don't skimp or your AV could be unsafe..

If your bars are already cranked up giving you one to two inches of lift then a kit like that or similar my only give you another inch. That may work for your AV, there's only one way to find out. Your 2wd so it may work fine you don't have axle shafts..

As far as shocks I would go with Bilstein 5100, like many on this site have, IMHO the best all around shock for on/off road.

Maybe someone with a 1500 that has done this can jump in...

Good luck
