loosing my t-bar crank....

ummm what can i do again to get the lift back from my t-bar crank. its totaly lost its hieght and is alot softer now(i love it!) but i dont like how it dropped like an inch or so... now the back looks high as hell

so im guessing i whored them for what they were worth and i'll prolly have to get new ones, or new harware and watnot.

anyone else had to fix this problem once before?...i supose i asked for it after i was so greedy about it..i got like 2-3" outa my crank..heh

any help would be great guys.. thanks

Your bars have sagged and gone soft. Either leave it as it is, or get new bars! My old 1 rate bars never dropped an inch after I cranked them.

Heh... Andy's bar went soft

I've got my 1-rated bars from the old truck. They're still on there but if Roach doesn't want em I'll sell them to you when I get them off the truck.
