Default should i tbar crank???

do you think it would be worth it to crank torsion bars up 1" or so.
or should i leave as is without a tbar crank and live with the smooth ride and keep my suspension from wearing out? the pics make the front look higher than it really is.
what do you think?

What, no poll on this? Haha just giving you shit man!

Do YOU want to crank them? I say do what looks good to you. Just do it the right way, and have your alignment checked after.

A 1" crank should not change the ride much at all. I did mine for about 2.5 inches, and it's not that much stiffer than stock. I'd say if your curious, then go ahead and give it a try. Worst case, you live with it for a while then crank them back down.
