Exactly, each truck is different. You could always max them out then go back a couple cranks to what your comfortable with.

from what i understand its the 4x4's that have them and the 2wd's have conventional springs. But someone else should confirm this.

98+ 4wd have them, every Edge has them, as well as the Tremor Package in 01? I believe. The only ones that have coils are xl 2wd I think. Anything under 98 has coils whether it is 2wd or 4wd

The torsion bar behaves like a spring, it is a bar that twists and reacts, creating a spring effect.

He is 2wd, only Arms up there, no need for a TTB, cause there are no axles.

You have TTB Suspension.

Twin Traction Beam

You do not have torsion bars. And do not take pics. There is no need.

Why did i crank mine 3 turns per side and only got like 1/2 a inch? do FX4's take more cranks? turn them clockwise right, like crank from left to right if your under your truck?

Just depends on which bars you have. Some are more rigid than others thus for take less or more turns for the same end results. some you may be able to get just a lil more lift out of than others also.

that tightens the bolt which increases the tension on the torsion bars, thus raising the front end. Loosening is the opposite...

clockwise = tighten, counterclockwise = loosen
