did you crank them all the way?

i wouldnt recommend more then 4 turns per side.

the passenger bolt is longer than the drivers side. so if you took them all the wya in the passenger side would be higher.

un crank the passenger side bolt.

you can do it but it will be tight.......if you are going to do any kind of off roading then you will have a problem with flex because the tire will hit the fenders and prolly tear either a tire or a fender up...

yea but the more you crank the torsion bars the more wear on the front end and the stiffer your front end is

Ditto on the 265s on the factory aluminum 16" rims....
Make sure you have a quality set up shocks or.... you run the chance of rubbing when offroading...

OR 4x4
