want a little more room for 33's

ok so ive been reading around here for a few months and finally have a question the search couldnt answer.

ok so i have a 2000 xlt 4x4
cranked t bars, 3" body lift, and 31 x 10.5 on 15 x 8 classic 2's

i want to lift the front and rear a little bit more without buying a superlift. i have to buy a new dirtbike before race season. was thinking would a longer torsion bar lift the front end without making the tires toed in \ / even worse than they are now. would it be the same effect as torsion keys, i just dont want the front end going to hell.

oh and im probably going to buy a limited slip within the next few weeks, how hard do you think it will be to install. thanks

your next option is to get a suspension lift, 33s will fit on your truck now with the BL

i dont have the money for a suspension lift, a new 250f costs as much as a paid for my truck haha and i realize that 33's will fit now, the 31's are too small. but i think it would look better with just a little more lift. i saw a picture of a dark grey level 2 with ssr's on here with a superlift and 1 inch body lift, and it looked pretty damn sweet thats basically what i want mine to look like minus the superlift part

besides a suspension lift there really is no other way to lift the front of 1998 plus 4wd's.
I think you are talking about my truck, I do miss it looking it like that.

I really liked them. The only problem with them is that they are very soft so they will wear out quick out on the road.

That was camodown and that was because he had a super heavy bumper on the front and it just brought him back to stock height.

your only other option is to chop the fenders and put bigger tires on. that will raise you a couple inches. 33's will fit fine. they fit great on mine. Heck i could fit 35 with out too much rubbing on the road, but i like to have a flexy suspention for wheelin'
