COILOVERS or TORSION BAR

My truck has a really bad ranger lean and I have maxed out bars so I have been thinking about replacing the bars or going to coils because my tires are rubbing badly when I turn left. I know that the coils have a much better ride I just donít want to dump a couple grand into the fox coilovers. So my question is, is there another cheaper brand of coils that is just as good or should I just replace my bars?

if you maxed out both bars theres your answer for really bad lean lol you're not supposed to crank them both to the max thats why one is out more than the other before they're cranked

yeah your looking at something wrong, coilovers themselves only cost like the post above (500-600 range) But you need other things that just the cost like getting brackets, hardware, spacers, gussetts ect..
