well i trully feel like an idiot.. i just went outside and took a look but i don't know which way to turn the bolt. i turned it at least 2 turns either way and didn't notice any difference in height. after 2 turns one way it wouldn't turn anymore. could the t-bars already have been cranked? (i bought the truck used but highly doubt it's the case). or am i just doing it wrong haha. please help guys

a townn...just turn the bolts as if you were tightening them...after the first couple turns it will get alittle tough...just spray WD-40 to lube it up alittle.

Well if you tightened them and turned them back, it might be wise to loctite the threads when you figure out what you're doing...

idunno if he did loosen them....did you a townn? yeah def. locktite the threads before tightening them up...but no you have some kinda problem...first..idunno what will happen to the front end when you take the bolts all the way out...and second you have to mark the bolts before taking them out so you have some sort of clue on were the stock height was at...WATCH OUT! one bolt is longer then the other so dont tighten them down the exact same..to were their both showing the same amount of thread....it took me exactly 40 min. to crank my torsion bars properly and swap wheels with my 97.
