Default too much rake

over the years my truck has slowly started to sag back to stock height. im not about to max out my t-bars cuz i dont really feel like breaking them on the trails, so what else could i do to level out the front?

because thats a pricey solution to sag

and i dont know if the ride is stiffer, but stiffer bars increase the height, lazler just switched to different bars and it lfited his truck a bit

I was pretty sure it wsa the price tag attached the coil over you were laughing at.

And the #1 bars are stronger, so do not sag as quickly.

Here's the part numbers for the #1 bars:

F67Z-5B326-FA Pass side
F67Z-5B326-FB Driver side

If you give ford your vin number to search for the bars they will give you the wrong ones. So you will have to make sure they use the part number or get a vin from a FX4 Level II

My trucks an 03 and my #1 bars are already sagging. Can't crank them up anymore cause one of the adjuster bolts broke off and I can't change the bolt, cause the key can't be lifted off the old bolt, due to a slightly tweaked frame. Damn I hate torsion bars.

Oh well yeah the coil-over conversion is a little pricey but i think it'd be worth it... no more torsion bars and from what i've heard an amazing ride. i guess if your just trying to get rid of sag then #1 bars might be a more reasonable option tho.
