Default 94 2wd have Torsion Bar?

I looked under the front,...but I dont really understand what I'm looking at. I tried using autozone and googling diagrams to ID what is under there, but none of them made sense.
Anybody got a pointer to a diagram matrix or something?
It doesnt have torsion bars,...I dont think. It looks like there are two independent bars from each wheel tappering down toward the other wheel with a pin at the center between them.

Any clues here? Help?

torsion bars didnt come out until 98 on the 4x4s and the sports/edges

those bars you are looking at are called radius arms. they use as part of the "a arm" in the TTB suspension

So to lift this beast I can use F150 springs, but then I'll also need to lower the center pin that the two arms 'bob' on, (point B), and then there are those brackets, (point F), which will need to be longer.
Any help on this proceedure and needed kit?
