Torsion Crank Question

I first cranked my torsion bars about 3 years ago and have made some adjustments here and there since then. Now my drivers side is almost maxed out and this is how it sits.

I know this doesn't look bad, but for being almost maxed my A-arms seem pretty level. Any advice?

Hey Kyle.

That looks normal. youve probably got B bars like I had. My left side was completely maxxed out. Mine are a little more angled than yours, but i've got new #1 bars now...cranked approx 60% of the bolt length. That might be an option.

Hey.....wanna build me a skid like that?

I'm pretty sure I have #1 bars, here's a pic in case i'm wrong.
