1989 gmc jimmy suspension question

i have a 1989 gmc jimmy and i am 16 so naturally i am short on cash but i want to try to lift my truck. i heard that i can do it simply by doing a axle flop and i was wondering if the torsion bars could be lifted high enough to level it out and if not how high can you go with them.

You can do a axle flip in the rear and gain approx 4" or so. Depending on how far the tortion bars are cranked now, you may only be able to gain a extra inch on the front by maxing the tortion keys. Some places offer a new key kit for that, it clocks the key different and can give you an added 2-4 inches of lift, but the front axles won't like it for long.
