Torsion Bar Lowering

How low can I lower my torsion bars. The bolts spin all the way out it looks like, can I pull them out? Or whats the minimum turns they need to be turned in? Thanks

If you take the adjustment screw all the way out, the torsion cam will sit on the key that the screw screws into. I would think you would be able to lower them all the way with out the key falling out (?) but your camber will be horrible, it would kill your tires.

Well then why didnt you say that in your first post? It sounded like you are trying to get your truck low as possible.

Just turn them the other way so they lower down.
