Ok so i recently asked whether to get a leveling kit or crank it up to make it sit like a 4x4. Olford said to give it a crank and then get the alignment checked. I dont have experience for workin on trucks but could i crank it myself??

Yes you can crank it yourself. I don not have pictures of it, i can try to get them later, but there are bolts at the end of the t-bars under the cab of the truck that you torque. The front of the truck has to be lifted off the ground so the suspension is expanded. When you atualyy torque the bars you have to make sure you torque each bolt the exact number of times or else you will have a lop sided truck in the front.

Thats just the basics until I get picks and refresh myself on the process but im sure someone else will chime in with this.
Whats happenin olford!!! and thanks man! my dad has my truck with him now but i wanna do it in the next few days
Not much man. Sucks being away from it dont it! I hate it when I go on cruze and im away from it for months. LOL
I know! I walked downstairs and looked outside and it was gone! haha but my dad will break it in a little which isnt a big deal. Plus he will have to put in a full tank a gas for me ;)
A full tank is always a plus!
Heck ya! and if anyone could post pics of how to do the crank that would be AWESOME.
