i have a 2-3" lift kit from rough country for my 98 z-71.
i was wondering how high i should crank the torsion bars up.
right now, i have them at the same height as the rear of the truck, measuring from top of the tire to the fender. (rear has 2 1/2 inch add-a-leaves). P.S- the bars are not maxed out yet, the bolts have about another inch before they are at max.
Well, the higher you crank them the more you wear front end components and the harsher the ride. I used to have mine maxed out, but I recently took them down a little. The front end parts are probably still being abused but the ride improved significantly.
Yea tell me about it. My truck is a 1/2 work truck with the 3" lift and a 2" body lift with 33s. The truck has the second stiffest bars that you can get for a Chevy. (the next highest ones are for a tow truck) and it only has a 4.3 v6 in it so its pretty light up front. If I drink a Mountain Dew and then go driving down the freeway I about vomit. But thats the price you pay i guess.
