I can tell you that there are numerous Ranger owners who buy replacement torsion bars to replace their sagging ones, as well as numerous Ranger owners who go the whole time with the stock torsion bars. I have no idea which category you will fall under for as I said, there are just way to many variables.

The point is, the people who allegedly told you it's all "bullshit" are wrong. It's very real.
That's still hearsay, though.

Since its a oem part, wouldn't there have been massive problems with sagging suspensions on the older gen? It doesn't make sense to me that such an ancient suspension system be only problematic on the rangers of the last 6 years.

Trying to learn the why..
