Torsion Bar Question
I recently bought a 2002 4x4 XLT X-Cab 4.0 V6 5speed...
I turned the torsion bars up a little at a time, taking measurements as I didn't want to go over 2". I managed to get about 1" but my drivers side adjustment bolt is bottomed out, completely maxed. For some reason, the pass. side still has 1/2" of thread left...but the truck sits level. I looked in the drivers side door tag under "SPR" and it says "1K".
The truck has 100K miles, could the torsion bar just need replacing? I don't want to go to a salvage yard and get a code "1" bar, and spend the time putting it in if I am going to run into the same problem. I will buy a new one from ford for $60.
Anyone else ran into this, and what did you do to solve it?
Thanks in advance...
