t bars

well frist off i cranked my bar tonight and love the look. every thing in this forum has been a great help. when i started there was a 1/2 in difference in hieght from the driver side to the passanger side. i cranked them an inch higher and left the 1/2 inch difference. is there a reason for this defference? also how do i know what torsion bar i have?

It is called the Ranger lean. The battery, gas tank and driver are all on one side. There is more weight there, so that is why it leans

Check your door tag and get the codes. There's a couple threads that can tell you which code is what.

open the drivers door and look for the sticker on the front side of the rear door (covered when drivers door is closed) and look for your bar code.

Not really, they are just a "softer" bar, so to speak.

The coding goes like this
Stiffer - - - - Softer
