Re: torsion bar \"cranking\"

you turn the adjusting bolt on the crossmember and it puts more tension on the key, thus putting more load on the torsion bar, thus pushing the lower control arm down...thus....lifting the front end.... viola! /wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif

i receive a repy from Brennan hill of http://www.hill4wheeldrive.com and he said that they do have some 2"-3"leveling kits($149) for the classic style GMs....something about tahoes, but i think they'll fit the trucks as well.

the leveling kit is just 2 new tbar keys that are clocked at a steeper angle than the stock keys, allowing for more lift without as much tbar crankin'...in turn, being better for the front end.

Shorts <-- its not what you think...and don't ask what it is /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Monica,

Thanks for the request, and sorry for the delayed response.
We do have that for some of the older body style tahoes and limited other
vehicles -- and yes it does work with a lift kit in most cases. You can
call 805-544-7039 for details or check back again when the catalog is
updated.

Thanks again for your request--we do carry just about every product
imaginable for the 88-98 pickups--especially the taller lifts and gears.

Brennan Hill

Re: torsion bar \"cranking\"

it would be a real good idea to use the 2 jaw gear puller. the t-bar can be unloaded with a C-clamp, but life and limb are at stake /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

the adjusting bolts use an 18mm socket. its not rocket science to turm them up a little, so don't let them scare you. 1"-1.5" is alright, but none of this 3" business.

i was wondering how bad these keys are, and i wanted ytou peoples' thoughts...thus my original post of New Tbar keys for lift

Re: torsion bar \"cranking\"

ryan, glad to hear your truck is coming along. hey, don't knock the minivans too much, i've seen those things do some pretty wild stuff /wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif you know what i though of? i was going to write to Fourwheeler mag and ask if they could do an all around test of like 4 or 5 different minivans, just for sh!#@ and giggles /wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif you know, some general street stuff, then get them in the dirt!!

72, i had my tbars cranked, then i dropped them for a while....now they're back up cause i got tired of the roll during turns and the girly way it looked from the front /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif my sig pic has the tbars turned down. i have other pics with them turned up, so i'm going to be switching them out here in a little bit.

i haven't installed keys or even messed with the tbars in any way other than turning the adjusting bolts....i just do A LOT of reading and drawing and brainstorming and lookin' at pics of everything i'm getting involved in /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif i know, i sound possessed, but there's no other way to understand about stuff unless i got really involved /wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
