did i turn up the t-bars too much?

just wanted to raise it up a little in the front. It was sitting real low.

do the angles and everything look good, or should i take it back down a half inch or inch or so?

Hard to say just from a picture. Usually between 1 & 1.5" is ok and you can still align the thing. Any more than that and you'd need longer upper control arms, longer brake hoses, and diff-drop brackets.

My Dad's torsion bars are sagged about that distance the other way. When he bought the truck 15 years ago they were level. I've seen stock Scottsdales with another inch of torsion bar crank than what you've got.

Hey box

Those angles don't look too bad to me. Did you happen to measure the height before and after?

i didn't measure before, but after it was 13.? inches to the frame... It doesn't seem to ride any rougher now than it did.

After 2.5" you might not be able to get a proper alignment and anything above that your cv boots tear around the steel clamp rings. I found out the hard way.

Those angles look better than mine and I dont have any problems with alignment.
