Exactly what is TTB?
And wich is the best way to lift for the truck.
Brand- Models - Price
Why 1997 are different?

Thnks

Some people were saying it affects the ride and handling, but I didn't notice any difference at all. I went almost the full length of the bolt and got about 1 3/4" out of it for a level ride.

You made my life so easy. I have a 97' ranger xlt 2wd and I feel it sags in the front. Same with you Im guessing.

Where did you buy this (and cost) and how easy was it to do? thanks a ton!

kind of a dumb question but could you torque the t-bar bolts without the truck lifted on jack stands?

Hey guys how do i know if the previous owner had cranked my t bar or not?
I bought my truck used....
Does it matter if the t bar is cranked or not
if i were to replace all 4 shocks?
Do i need some special shocks other than stocks?

Nope doesn't matter when buying shocks.

You can check by parking on a flat level surface, and measuring the distance from the ground, to the bottom of the wheel well. In the middle.

If front and back are the same, they are cranked to level it.
