Torsion Bar and Rear Spring Code

My truck has the code FFKK for the t-bar and rear spring code, and i've searched and can't find anywhere on the forum or elsewhere that showed which bar the FF is. Would any of you know which ones these are? My truck has the rear diff 8.8 & 4.10's if that makes a difference.

F coded torsion bars have the lowest spring rate of all torsion bars offered on the Ranger. Also available are B and 1 bars with #1 Bars being the stiffest.

Yeah that's dumb. Thanks guys I only thought there were two types of t-bars. Would mine be any weaker than the B bars or the #1's?

They aren't weaker so to say, they just aren't as stiff.

No Fs are pretty common as well. I have Fs, most 2wd 3.0 Edges do as well.

I replaced my F bars with #1 bars. I couldn't be happier. Only do that if you enjoy a rather stiff ride.

ALL level 2's are #1 bar equipped.





F's have a lower spring rate. 1 has the highest.
