Truckin Suspension Torsion Bar

I SEEN THIS SOMEWHERE ELSE AND WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAD TRIED IT, IT SAYS THAT YOU HAVE 2-3 MORE INCHES OF ADJUSTMENT OVER STOCK, ANY INPUT WOULD BE GREAT. IF ANYONE DOES HAVE ONE OR PICTURES THAT WOULD BE GREAT. THE TITLE SAYS DROP BUT READ THE ARTICLE.

I know of noone that has put that in. I think it was decided that doing that and doing the crank did undo stress to the torsion bars.

Supposed to flip the torsion keys and let you get more lift out of the bars, to the best of my knowledge, I know we have covered it before.

It also says you can drop them 2-3 more inchs than before. I have never seen those.

Atom...search "torsion lift" or "torsion crank" or "torsion bars". There's supposed to be a torsion bar crank how-to from me in the next couple days.

I am thinking even if they offered better ride then cranked T-bars or something to that effect after you put 35's on there you will loose any remaining ride quility.

i know how to crank the bars, i cranked them once, and it rode horrible, there was no suspension at ALL, but i only got about 1" lift, i had one side almost maxed out and 1 had anout 3/4" of bolt hanging out! i am mainly looking for about 2" lift and not ride like total ****! but i guess if i have to them i am gonna go with a body lift. does anyone know if the front bumper brackets for the performance accessories or trailmaster lift are the same from 98-00 application to the 01-03? cuz i got a 99 with an 03 xlt fx4 level II front bumper.

these parts are useless!

you can max out the front end with the stock adjusters and keys.


the only thing these would be good for is if you plan on putting a huge v8 or a snow plow on your truck.
