Quick T-bar Question

I just need to know if there is a physical difference between #1 bars and F bars which my sticker says I have. Im not sure if the previous owner may have switched to #1's already because my ride is really stiff already. I figure its unlikely but I'd reather know before I go and spend almost $200 on #1's. I just cranked my bars a little I still have a lot of thread left to crank but Im going to avoid over stressing my bars....and having to get an alignment.

I've got #1 bars and they are fully cranked and it rides REALLY rough. Feels like I have no suspension in the front whatsoever. Bounces all over the place.

However, they don't seem to be sagging, even with well over 250k miles on them.

Seems like you need new shocks!!!!

I have #1 bars cranked all the way and it is rough, but it is a truck not a caddy. I prefer the height over the ride, but i don't think that it is that bad.

My #1's maxed out ride the same as when I didnt crank them. I'd say you need Blistens or ball joints.

My non FX4 Ranger did that when I Cranked them. It was rough as hell
