how much front suspension travel do we have?

for torsion bar front ends?

in that, i mean...if you were to flex....and the tire on the high side of the flex....how much would it travel before tighenting up and moving all the twisting to the rear suspension?

2 inches? 3? i know they dont give much....speedbumps and potholes are a biach....

Stock is ~5-6" like Jared said, with longer shocks, removed sway bars, and limit straps (dont need those CV's popin out) they can pull 9" before the BJ binds and CV's pop out.

5-6 sounds like not to bad than 9 sounds great, the sad thing is that is total travel so 2.5 up and 2.5 down WOW!!!! LOL
