    More It shouldn't. The key is the same as the stock. The differance is where the trosion bar slides into the key it is clocked at a different position so if you flip is it might raise your truck instead.

    Stop being an ass npcdusty! I'm glad that you have done that. I have installed CORRECTLY as belltech said to do and still had to turn up the keys so I wasn't grading the road. Give your input and show how you did it and be helpful with it. Alot of people are on this site to give support with the things they have done, not to try to put someone down. Good that you work in a fab shop. It give you alittle more insite than some people, But you don't have to come down on someone that is also trying to help. Also, I'm not argueing with you about it. You are the only one that is argueing.

    No. My is the Bravada and it is a all wheel drive so there is a difference of gear ratio to the front drive axles.

    Well, I'm not sure what to think anymore. Oh well. F#@k it. I just ordered my belltech keys yesterday and as soon as they are here I will install them the right way and then I will take them back out and flip them to see what happens. I started this post so I will test it out, take pictures, and post them to show everybody if it works or not. However, I do agree with npcdusty and I think that it will lower my blazer even more. They should be here in about a week and the next day I get off from work I will do it then. Hey, npcdusty, don't feel so bad about what laynlow17 said. Just look at the beginning of the post and what he said to me for asking a question. It looks like he can be a jack off sometimes.

    imo i wouldnt flip the belltech torsion keys unless you are going to rip out the 4x4 axle shit... plan on a very shitty ride and lots of negative camber. thats if it does lower it more by flipping the belltech keys, cant say i know if it does.

    take what i have done into consideration:

    well anyways i took the stock keys and did the torsion bar trick and it slammed it. it dropped 6+ inches.. the front axles hit on the a arms, the tires hit the wheel wells, it bounced like a mofo, the ride was horrible, the camber was way to extreme for it to get aligned. anyways after i did this and drove around for about 10 minutes, i decided that the belltech keys are the way to go.


    i would only say lower your 4x4 more than 5+ inches if your ride isnt going to be a daily driver.

    Right now I have the blazer sitting in my garage and I should have it all done by the end of summer. After that it will basically be a daily driver until I get my other blazer done and the one I am working on now I will be taking to shows. So, it will be a daily driver for a couple of months but after that I am not really sure. When I first posted this I did not know if flipping the belltech keys would work or not and I was not sure if I would do that or not I just knew that using the belltech keys were the way to go. I was just curious. But now I want to do it just to see if it works or not. So, we will see what happens. When you flipped your keys did you use drop shocks? Do you think that could have made a difference?
