Cranking the stock Torsion Bars?

I know that the stock torsion bars of my 92 S-10 Blazer can be cranked to give me a moderate 1 -1 1/2" of lift, but I don't know how much to turn the crank bolts to achieve this. Has anyone done this and can give me some guidance? Thanks for any help. I don't want to end up going too much as I've never done this before.

Re: Cranking the stock Torsion Bars?

i got an 1" i shulda gone more.. I can.. But i think i got 3 1/2 turns to achieve one inch.. make sure you spray them with panther piss (PB blaster) 2 days ahead of time.. and it took 15 it in a flat surface.. like in a shop.. do both sides at the same time.. and lift the truck up off the ground so u wont ring off the bolts.. Measure a point from the frame down.. and make marks so u measure the same each time.
Get 2 people.. one turning one bolt the other turning the other.. try to turn them the same.. then let the truck down.. bounce it, make sure it settles, then measure it make sure there even.. then get an alignment right after.
