Torsion Bar Crank

Ok I hate the way my 4x4 stands... too stock I want to crank on the T bars a little 1"- 2" MAX nothing that would totally kill the joints. But I need to know how to and where the T Bars are located, and how would I know or measure how much I cranked them. Any help would nice. One day that RCD 5" life kit will be mine ^_^, and then I will lower the bars back to their normal state.

If you search, that's all been covered several times here. Search for "cranked" and maybe "torsion" or "t-bar" or whatever and you will find it. It may even be a sticky somewhere.

If you get the RCD, you can kiss your t-bars good bye. They get replaced with coilovers.

I thought there were two kits, one with coil overs and one with the stock t-bars.

But wouldn't that be a good thing?

I sure think so. Get those stupid t-bar towers off the truck.

Yes, the RCD kit eliminates the t-bars and uses coilovers. The Superlift kit retains the t-bar setup. If the money fairy were to ever visit me I would love to get the RCD lift and ditch my t-bars.

I look at it like this... Bars are for renforcement. Liek on a concrete job, why would you want a bar on your truck? When you need to Flex like the Gov. of California ^_^!!!

Originally they were releasing two kits. One was coilover and one wasn't. I don't know what they ending up doing though since I am not in the market.
