Re: SWAY-A Way torsion bars!

The bars are made of a better material and generally a better spring rate. They are also thicker.

They will be twisted up tighter, giving you "lift", but it is the same as putting your stock torsions up. The difference is in the spring rate. The thicker, better, torsion bars will help you by not bottoming out.

If you want a real "lift" then you must go with a kit from Trailmaster, etc. These kits give you a new a-arm and a front differential drop bracket. The rest is in torsion bar cranking.

To get a true "lift" you'll need to fab out some longer a-arms, better torsion, and really good shocks or a coil-over idea. But you're talking about some major cu$tom work there with an emphasis on $!
