    I should have clarified. For just leveling out the truck keys are a waste. They do nothing more than cranking your torsion bars will do, which is free. If you need more lift than that then keys can work, but I much prefer to do a suspension lift. You could also do a body lift if your just looking to gain some clearance for tires. I wouldn't do a BL on a chevy, though.

    I just got off the highway with the new tires and they felt good going down the road at 70-75 mph. I didn't notice any humming coming from the tires but my truck is pretty loud too overall so far they are really nice tires we will see how they do in mid and snow later on.

    The truck is in the shop today. They are going to fix a few loose rods in the front end then they are going to try and raise the front end by the T-bar but he said if its stuck to bad they wont do it so i said thats fine. Then a alignment and i should be good to go.

    Those T bars can be stubborn. I have to use a 1/2" drive and a 3ft breaker bar on mine. Post pics!

    Did you try that wheel cleaner yet?

    Ill should have some pictures tomorrow. I did try the cleaner out. It worked really well for the rims never being cleaned before. The front rims were worse then the back to begin with so they didnt get as clean but "cleaner" none the less. So im happy with it I'm working on putting a short video together on it but im not sure how that turned out since the sound isnt great on it. I might just take that out and show just the clips of whats going on.
