crank em up..but just a bit from full...so you are still able to push the front end down a bit by hand..that will give you at least some play, after my BL, i lowerd mine a bit to get the ride back, and to ease off the joints

So no T-bar crank and its 3 inches taller, and then could you crank the T-bars up for another inch or so ?

Ben, unfortunately Weldtec's kit won't give you any lift, just increase your travel. 4x4's don't have spindles (they use knuckles wich is the same thing but allow the axle to go through to the rotor), and because of the use of a lift spindle in the kit, it wouldn't lift you any. On the other hand, you'd have the ultimate sleeper, driving around at stock height with 10" of travel, .

no i mean it will be 3 inches taller than your truck no t-bar crank. the wedtech kit says you need to crank the bars to achieve the 3 inches of lift.

the weldtec kit just allows you to crank the bars and not have issues like ball joints it also improves travel.

Oh so you get 3"inches of lift but its from the T-bar crank just no balljoints, and better travel.

Being considered.

Ben, it won't work on your truck (the lift part anyway), you have 4x4, and the lift that Jeremy installs is a 2wd spindle, not a 4wd knuckle. You could still get the arms and uniballs to get some more travel out of your truck, but since you are 4wd, you will not get the lift.

Does anyone know where I can get a "how to" with pics on cranking t-bars on a '04 edge 2wd on the internet? Also, I own a set of Nitto Terra Grappler (285/75/16) tires. Will they fit with a 3in body lift, or will I have to crank my t-bars a little? Thanks.

wow re-birth of an old post, try the tires if you have to crank the t-bars some crank them.

I have my T-bars cranked to fit the 35's,

the T-bar crank is easy, at the back of the T-bars there is a bolt that goes vertical, just tighten it up equally for both bars, and bounce the front end every couple turns or jack the truck up by the frame so that the tires are off the ground, about 6-11 complete turns is about 2 inches of lift.

Also my alignment was way off get an alignment

I'm suspicious. I don't see how to go from 4" to 10" of travel by only replacing the upper arm geometry.
