Default So i want to lift my truck..

I have a 2003 Mazda B3000 Dual Sport..

My truck i think has torsion bars. Can a truck with torsion bars get a lift? and I read that you can tighten up the torsion bars to gain a 1 or 2" lift. is this true?

Yes they can!

you can crank your T bars for free lift but you sacrifice ride quality.

You can also Get spindles for T bars Or do a body lift!

So i guess a body lift is the way to go..i mean its cheap. and it allows me to get bigger tires. But why do ppl talk bad about a body lift. For example the other day my friend was like dude dont get a body lift they suck. so why?

body lifts are cheap, but thats the thing, they are cheap! haha

All they do it raise the "body" or cab and bed up off the frame of your truck. thus making room for times but nor creating more suspension travel or clearance. This is the most common reaosn why people say it sucks.

they just lift the body, so you can see more of the frame and don't gain ground clearance. they're also solid, so more vibrations from the road transfer to the cab, and if you do off road somewhat aggressively that can mean ripping your cab where the body mounts are

i was looking at that thread and it looks like alot of people just cranked the torsions bars...but i think you can only get a max 2" lift out of that..maybe i should just save up for the spindle lift...its $347
