okay another torsion bar question....

1. Ok I was wondering if you could buy a different set of torsion bars that would give you a more comfortable lift when you crank them or even more lift from cranking them.

2. I am curious if anyone is running the lift keys I just want to know more about it other than it isnt a good idea to you. I am just curious because I am going to need all the lift I can get and I cant afford to buy a front lift to replace the 4 in superlift.

3. About the caster/camber kits.....do they work on a auto locking hub. I have a 2003 Mazda B4000. I was just wondering when I crank my T-bars should I invest in something to better my alignment.

P.S.-I know the ride will be stiff if I crank the T-bars to the max.

1. no, you will not get more lift. Stiffer springs will just not sag as bad so it seems that way and they will ride rougher.

2. you might as well buy the superlift if you plan on getting the lifting keys because you will spend more money replacing all the front end parts after they keep wearing out.

3. with just cranking the bars a couple inches you don't need camber kits. It can still be aligned just fine
