Just something to remember, your ride quality will suffer the more you crank your torsion bars, not that it's anything to write home about now, but most people notice a decrease in ride quality when they crank their t bars, especially if you max them out.

It's really simple, just 4 bolts on the frame and one on each LCA. Shouldn't take you too long at all.
