torsion bar lifts??

does cranking the torsion bar give you a lift on just the front? if so how do you raise the back the same height?
any info on cranking those suckers would be nice.

Re: torsion bar lifts??

You can modify the rear shackles a bit if you want to get a little more back height. The basic way is to get longer shackles. But beware, too long shackles will reduce the stability of your suspension [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] and reduce the quality of your rear end's handling. One good way to go is to buy those "Revolver" shackles that when installed for the back, will increase a little bit of height but provide you with more flex [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] as they allow your rear springs to twist a lot more. Those a great shackles but somewhat pricy [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. My tidbits!
