Default tbar~shocks

i dont get why if i tbar crank 2" my trucks shocks wont be over streched. i jacked up my truck two inches today and this is how the shocks looked.
so a tbar crank wont make them look like this?

I'm gonna be honest, you're a thread whore. It's a t-bar crank, not an SAS. Just crank em. If something happens to your shocks or anything goes wrong crank it back down.

There's a reason you leave stock length shocks in it......not only is there NO longer shocks available other than the 4" superlift shocks for 4" of lift, but those shocks act as a limiting strap helping you save your CV shafts. Your truck will NEVER be as tall as it is at full droop......hell, even after crank, it'll droop right to the same spot.


And for the love of god, jesus christ dude, ONE THREAD for your 15 new threads a day count.

The majority of lifted Rangers have torsion bar cranks... you'll be fine.
