Cranking T-Bars and Using Torsion Keys

i am planning on getting #1 torsion bars for my 2002 edge and and cranking them the max i can. does anyone know how many inches they can give max. If you crank the t-bars can you also use torsion keys and use them to gain lift too? thanks.

you will gain 1-2in from cranking your bars but IDK how much you will gain with the #1 bars....stay away from torsion keys.

the most lift you will get is about 3, thats what i got and i have no treads left on the bolt and it rides like a brick plus your ball joints will hate you here is a pic of mine but i also have a 3 inch body lift

It's not worth it. Just get a real lift. Since you are a 2wd they are not that expensive. All the money you will spend replacing ball joints could go to a lift.

You can run just a tube in the front. I'm not sure what it's called but it is just a tube that goes across the front. Jeep was doing it on the older 2wd Cherokees(I think). It's basically a SAS without the 4wd.
