Need to go lower.

I have an 07 Sport with torsion bar setup. Im bagged all the way around and i was wondering if there is anyway i can go lower without having to "Z" the front part of the frame. I found uppers and lowers on summit and it says that it will fit my application but i "had" a torsion bar setup for my suspension before i went to the bag setup. Does anyone know of a way i can cheat gravity and go lower to get the front of this thing down?

probably not. just z the frame. it will give you the look you want and from what i have heard gives a better ride and handling because it moves everything higher and closer to stock geometry
