AAL & T-Bar???

So i searched on T-bars, made it to page 5, didnt see what i was looking for.

So here is my questions.

What is the average height you can get with the T-Bar crank?

Also, i will do AAL to, and on the website, http://store.summitracing.com/partde...ew=1&N=700+150, it just says from 1 1/2 - 2 1/2.

I dont want to be super uneven when i do the t-bars.

One last think, all i need for the AAL is http://store.summitracing.com/partde...0&view=1&N=700 & http://store.summitracing.com/partde...ew=1&N=700+150

if oyu are just doing a t-bar crank, go either the shackle or just the AAL...both will give a lot more lift than just a t-bar crank

Option 1: T-bar crank 1-2 in (Free)
The basics: tighten the preload bolt on the Trosion bar, this causes the truck to ride higher in its suspension giving you a stiffer ride and 1-2 in of "lift"

So only do one.. or thee other.. Shackle or AAL.. Which would be better? I am thinkin the AAl.

What all do i need to do to install that? I am pretty mechanicly inclined..

Also, i was lookin at summitracing.com, and they dont offer it for a 2006 ranger. It stops at 2002, i am on the phone with them right now.. seeing what they say

you can expect to get 2in from the aal and 2in from the shackle that is if you do the full lift. The shackle is adjustable though but i would do just the shackle with your t-bar crank.

I plan on doing the shackles and Crankin the bars... I cannot wait. Belltech 6400 work every time!
The shackles are made to lower a full size chevy...the shackles/hangers on those trucks is reverse of ours, so a full size chevy drop shackle is a ranger lift shackle....

Torsion bars some times only yield 0.5"... its kinda a range between 0.5-2.5" every truck is different...

wow, I had never heard that before... maybe I should do that before I get shackles...see how much lift I get. I guess that mostly has to do with spring rate?
