Lift Inquiry

Is it a waste of time and money to install 2" lift springs if I can simply get 2 inches of lift from cranking the torsion bar? I'm lifting the rear a couple inches with longer shackles which is super easy. The spring replacement is a whole other ballgame. I'm trying to save myself a major headache. Any thoughts?

Thank you.

If you have torsion bars, you can't use extended coil springs

You are mixing 2 different kinds of suspension. Being a 2wd Xl you have coils so you would have to add 2" lift springs. You do not have torsion bars, so you can't crank them to get a lift.

Perfect! You learn something new every day. Thank you so much!

I've been reading so much in this forum about torsion lifts that I assumed all front end suspension used them. I'm glad I asked.

Again, Thank you both.
