Default Re: Torsion Bar Lift For 2010 - 2011 Info

New to this. Have a question....I want to level the front end of my 2001 Danger Ranger - are keys the way to go or is cranking the tortion bar 1 1/2 to 2 inches the way to go?

How do I know if my bars are sagging? Do bigger bars give you a lift?

I love my keys, lots of people hate them with a passion but it's their opinion. When I first did the lift the ride was very rough, then I removed the front sway bar and added longer shocks rides good now. People will also say keys will destroy your front CV's. I have 55000km put on since the lift with lots of hard 4x4ing and I haven't had a problem yet.

MODS: the original torsion bar how to should be stickied into this thread as well (to avoid questions like that)

keys = $$ for parts and 50 dollars for alignment.
crank torsion bars yourself = free + 50 dollar alignment. you decide

Ok, the RS5000's are officially installed. Indeed, a much smoother ride. It pretty much feels as it did stock before I cranked the t-bars. The height is holding steady at 35" (measuring from the ground to the bottom of the fender flare). I will measure again in about a week after the shocks have had some time to settle.

I also got an alignment while I was at it. Rides great and I am very happy.

Hmm, I measured again this morning and the front sits at 34-3/4" on each side while the back is at 35-1/4". So the front sagged 1/4" and the rear went up 1/4".

I wonder if this suspension just has to settle for the front and rear to even out?

i am going to do mine soon. I have the same truck Brewmeisterbean except mine is an auto and I have part of the chrome package. I say part of because I just sold the step bars so all that is left is the exhaust tip.

Muscleford, how much did you get for your step bars (running boards)? I took mine off because they weren't being used and just got in the way. I think I might sell mine too.
