Torsion Bar Q

I've been hearing, and I think it's correct, that if you've like me and only have 2wd, you can't crank your T-bars? If so..Someone PLEASE give me a complete walk-through..I don't even know where the bolt is :\

you can't crank them because you don't have t-bars. That simple

Only 2wd ranger that has T-bars is the Edge (2001-2005) or the sport (2006-present)

EDIT: Oh, and maybe the trailhead??

And how much do you think coils will run me? Especially since I think I remember reading that I'll have to change out my shocks as well?

yes you will need from shocks too..

skyjacker coils are around $100 i beleave my skyjacker shocks ran about $80 for 2, and then there is the alignement being you need cams which can be around $40 each.. i know my alingment was around $125..
so around $325...ish kinda
