Driverside adjustment bolt is as deep as it'll go...aka Maxed bars.

Bars are maxed either for the lift or compensating for saggy bars, like myself. I'm maxed right now and have no intention of replacing those bars. Coil-overs FTW!



Max out the passenger side, the truck will have a wicked droop on the driver side. haha.

Of course you can....but you'll end up with one side of the truck 2" higher than the other. But if you like that sorta stance, hey more power to ya.



"Ranger lean" is what it's called. Driverside has more weight on it than the passenger side(gas tank, driver, battery, etc). The adjustment bolt on the driverside is always deeper than the passenger....aka....driverside STOCK is cranked for than the passenger side. Bolts are the same length too. Crank both sides the same amount to keep a level front end(level side to side). If you max both sides out, driver's side sits lower already, you'll have a truck that leans alot. It'll look like you've got a 500lb person on the driver's seat with you on their lap.

I don't see the need for it...don't have the need for it now and won't anytime soon. It'll likely stay right where it's at for the next couple years and the bars are maxed out and sagging pretty good already. lol.
