Another Torsion bar question.

So i did a quick search and couldn't find my answer.

I just cranked my t-bars on my 2007 ford ranger sport 4x4. I gained 1 1/2 inch's on both sides however on the drivers side the bolt is cranked all the way, and on the passengers i still have a lot left. Is this normal?

Thanks!

Yes, totally normal. For some reason 1 bolt is longer than the other

You probably cranked till the truck was sitting level, looking at it from the side and from the rear (or from the front) Rangers came stock with the driver side higher to compensate for a full tank of gas and an average size driver.

Otherwise, yes normal

EDIT: Trent is faster, I didn't know the bolts were different sizes
