Yes its true you can gain 1 & 1/4 inches!

Hey! get your mind outta the gutter!!

Anyway I finally did it I got my tbars cranked up. Both the fronts were 33 1/4 inches before cranking and are now 34 1/2 inches tall. not that big of a crank but I can see the difference. Might of gone taller but one of my bolts stopped so I just wanted it to be even. Anyway here's some before and after and flexing pics on the mound in my yard.

BEFORE:

AFTER:


Flexing:



Anyway its not a huge difference but i'm happy

no. I made it clear a couple months ago I wasn't. Also it would cost more then what i'd want to spend to be able to slam it. I'd have to get my whole front frame redone ontop of bags and all that **** and it is not worth it to me. i'm gonna enjoy my truck the way it is.

Yes I cranked my torsion bars. It raise the front about an inch and 1/4 so now it sits more level then at a slant. If you look at the gap on the front from the top of the tire to the fender you will see a difference.

the thing that sucks with cranking your tortion bars, is that in offroading, your front suspension will have no droop, so your whole truck will drop
