Torsion Bars do NOT mess with your tie rods. . . you'll immediately need an alignment. Crank the torsion bars. Each truck varies from about 1"-2"

If you crank your tie rods you will get 13 inches of lift.

..and i feel like a dumbass for actually trying to give advice to someone that may had been misinformed, or a little new to messing with their truck without being rude or trying to make them feel stupid.. Instead it was someone that had nothing better to do than waste my time.

I cranked my front and rear tie rods, thats how I have the lift that I have. You should do it to your truck too, or if you really want a lot of lift just take them off completely.

All I did was put some FX4 stickers on my bed, and BAM! Instant Mazda B4000 FX4. Stickers and cranked tie rods, is all you need to make your truck badass.

Ya know, as much height as you get cranking those tie rods, the key to doing it is for the ride quality.
