Step 1: Position truck on a flat surface and lift vehicle by the frame so that the front wheels are off the ground. Use a floor jack and jack stands or a (2) two post lift if available. Next locate the torsion key cross member under the cab of the truck. (Insert A)

Step 2: (B) Mark the position of the factory keys in relation to the cross member. This will assist in the correct re- installation of the ReadyLift® keys. Remove the drivers’ side torsion key adjusting bolt completely. Using a torsion bar unloading tool, compress the key so that you can remove the threaded part of the torsion adjuster. (Insert B) Releasing the tension on the torsion bar unloading tool will now release the tension on the torsion bar. Slide torsion bar forward allowing the torsion key to be removed. (Insert C)

Step 3: Install the ReadyLift® Forged torsion key and slide torsion bar back into position. (Insert D) IMPORTANT! Make sure Torsion Bar is extended at least ¼” inch through the Torsion Key. Apply pressure with torsion bar unloading tool to the torsion key, and create enough space to reinsert the torsion key keeper that the adjusting bolt threads into.
