#1 Torsion bars sagging??

Okay, this may be silly, but I've heard a lot of talk about torsion bars sagging.. But I'm not 100% sure whether or not mine are sagging.. These babies are cranked all the way. Tell me what you think, because I hate to go spend the money on some new ones, and it make no difference. Maybe I'm just getting use to it.. But I had a buddy ask why I lowered it today.. Hahaha, so I was crushed. Lol.

Yeah, mine sits an inch lower in the front than the back... I may just go ahead and replace them... :/

Nope.. Just the stock 2" Blocks. That's why I question it. Most guys run the torsion bars all the way up, then put the chevy drop shackles on. Thats what I wanna do.

its hard to tell. But if you are pretty level now, maybe another inch with new ones.
