torsion tweak?

I'm thinking about lifting my 92 jimmy a couple inches,and was thinking about tweaking my torsion bar and adding shackles, or blocks in the rear.I'm planning on keeping my 235-75-15's on it for now,but might be slapping on some 32's if they will fit. Is there a procedure on how to adjust the bar? blocks or shackles? Thanks

Re: torsion tweak?
Resist temptation, 2" is the max. I recommend staying on the safe side and go 1". No more than 1.5"
Blocks will lower the rear since it's a spring under, you will have to go with shackles or AAL's.
Assuming stock rims, 30x9.5's are the biggest you could run. 31's may work with some hammering on the inner fender but it's impossible to say since it's such a tight fit and every vehicle is different (and driven differently).

I would have to agree with 88blazer.I am just finishing my 84 s-15 jimmy.I turned my T-bar's 2",and my 30*9.50*.15 BGF's .Have good clearance ,even on roads it shouldn't be on.

32's won't fit without either a suspension lift or a body lift(3") or both!
31x10.50s will fit with the t-bar crankup, as long as you don't turn the wheel to full lock(side lugs hit swaybar). 30x9.50s will fit perfectly with the t-bar crank, though without rubbing. Also keep the stock wheels or ones with identical backspacing. Good luck.
