Re: Torsion Bars

When you add a plow, you add weight to the front, which causes the truck to not sit level anymore. When you crank the torsion bars with a plow, it seems like if you were to crank them up just enough to compensate for the added weight on the front, the angles should remain exactly the same as no plow and stock t-bar setting. This is because you're not running it any higher than normal settings. Or is that wrong?

Another thing about a body lift, is that yes, you actually gain a little ground clearance (half the increase in diameter of the new tires from the old ones). How is a suspension lift going to keep the tires from hitting the frame?
