Default knuckle lift lowered to same height as cranked t bars, which lift to get?

Hey guys I'd like to get a lift (not leveling kit) for my truck to fix the cranked t bars. Does anyone have experience with a brand that can be made to sit level with the rear of a 2002 2500hd? Thanks!

Found a thread elsewhere with pics of a lowered cognito ntbd at about leveling height. Might work depending on bump stops?

Also can someone explain the ntbd to me is it a bracket that bolts to the top of the lower arm? Wouldn't that swing the torison bar around with travel? Thanks!

NTBD works... I know of a few guys that run BDS kits cranked up abit with stock keys. That will break tbar bolts. Too much leverage. Swapping out to leveling keys solved the problems.
