Re: Torsion Bars

I don't like the idea of cranking the t-bars all the way. One, the suspension hits the bump stops on every rebound.
Second, (and more importantly) When the suspension is fully compressed it causes the t-bars to twist approx. 50% more than they would stock. This is eventually going to cause the bars to fatigue and begain to sag.

I think you would have a lot less to worry about if you stayed conservative and went an inch. I would save up a $100 and get a body lift, or just do a little fender trimming.

Just my opinion.

If anyone has any specs on the t-bars, let me know. I'd like to do a little math to figure out how much twist, max twist, ect. of the bars

Hit? Them tires rub. Rubbin's off roadin.
